A plumbing and heating technician works on commercial, residential, agricultural, and industrial projects of varying sizes and scope — from a single home repair job to large and complex facility projects.

They plan and design, select and install, commission, test, report, maintain, troubleshoot, and repair systems to specifications. Whether it is working to provide safe and reliable service in accordance with relevant standards, diagnosing malfunctions, or programming and commissioning home and commercial automation systems, the expert in this field will need skills and habits in concentration, precision, accuracy, and attention to detail.
