Also, what type of plumber? residential, commercial, etc....there are different areas that you can specialize in.

Do a google search....here is some info. Not sure how accurate, but you get the idea....

Entry into most of these occupations is through an apprenticeship or, in some instances, a pre-apprenticeship. Plumbing, gas fitting and roof plumbing apprentices complete on-the-job training in conjunction with technical studies through training providers. You have to get so many (hundreds/thousands) hours of on the job training and certification before becoming a "certified" plumber.

The apprenticeship is five years of four levels. Practical and technical training is a minimum of 1800 hours per level. About 80 per cent of the time is spent learning practical on-the-job skills under the supervision of a certified journeyperson and 20 per cent consists of learning the theoretical and technical aspects of the trade through in-school training. The fourth year of training is devoted entirely to acquiring on-the-job experience.

Please don't feed the troll....

*EDIT*

My bad....it's nearly Christmas and if I can't extend a bit more grace toward another human being (I hope) then what kind of example am I?

Mea Culpa.

You need a pair of pants that show your butt when you bend and a license to plumb. Skill is not really required.

First thing to know being a plumber is *censored* flows downhill. Second thing is don't chew your fingernails. Third thing is if water sprays out then you did it wrong. :D

You need to get a van with a giant fake faucet mounted on the roof and then develop a large beer belly, wear t-shirts that are too short and, as Coaledsweat said, develop "Plumber's Crack".
