"PTTC gave me more confidence in what I am doing. When I first started I didn't know anything about plumbing or using tools in general. And I learned everything at the school."

meet SABRINA

Sabrina is a journey level plumber, having recently graduated from the apprentice program. 

Her advice to women considering a career in the trades, "this is the best thing you can do with your life! I can't express how wonderful this has been for me." 

The PTTC is proud to be an equal opportunity institution. The women in our community receive the same respect, training and pay as their male counterparts.
