SB17-130 - Sprinkler Fitter Registration Minimum Experience Requirements

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning alignment of the number of hours of practical experience required to register as a sprinkler fitter with the number of hours of practical experience required to become licensed as a journeyman plumber.

Under current law, a person must have performed at least 8,000 hours of practical work experience on fire suppression systems over the previous 5 years to register as a sprinkler fitter. This minimum experience requirement is nearly equivalent to the practical experience required to become licensed as a master plumber, which requires at least 8,500 hours of practical experience. The bill aligns the practical experience required to become registered as a sprinkler fitter with the practical experience required to become licensed as a journeyman plumber, which requires 6,800 hours of practical experience.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
