Become A Plumber?

Test text---Using a SNIPEF Licensed Plumber gives you peace of mind that you are choosing a plumbing business which uses properly trained and qualified operatives.


The SNIJIB (Scottish & Northern Ireland Joint Industry Board for the Plumbing industry) regulates and controls employment, health and safety competence, wages and welfare benefits.

SNIPEF members can access a range of services designed to help their businesses run more efficiently and profitably.

Our key role is to give members a competitive edge and help improve and develop their business.


The only recognised industry route for a plumbing apprenticeship is achievement of the Modern Apprenticeship (MA) in Plumbing.
