Licensing of plumbers is governed by regional specific government authorities. These authorities regulate the occupation of plumbing in your area by issuing and renewing licences to plumbers. To obtain a licence they need to have completed accredited courses and be in possession of an approved qualification. They also typically have to have vocational, on the job, experience.

A licence is a credit card sized document that details the class of licence, holders name or business name, registered address, licence number and expiry date. Licences are typically valid for a number of years.
