We are excited to have been approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Veterans Affairs, as an authorized plumbing training school for veterans. Veterans will have the opportunity to receive hands-on training through a plumbing apprenticeship with Gillece.
The Gillece Veterans Training Program allows for students to apply for assistance under the GI Bill in addition to receiving paid training at our corporate office. Our 7,600 square-foot training facility is a great place for students to learn how to use the latest industry technology, work on demo units, and apply acquired plumbing skills.
The training program will work alongside the Associated Master Plumbers of Allegheny County, for a 4-year program that combines schooling and 8,000 hours of apprenticeship work under a licensed Master Plumber in order for students to become Journeyman Plumbers. We are looking forward to working with the military community as they return home and seek career opportunities.
