    Can I take my journeyman or master exam now and earn my on-the-job work hours later?
    No, state law requires that on-the-job work hours and school hours/grades be met before one is approved to take the exam.
    Where can I find the amendments to the plumbing code?
    Amendments to the plumbing code can be found in the Uniform Building Standards Act Rules R156-56-707.
