Free Maine State Internal Plumbing Code Training Offered to All Licensed Plumbers and Interested Parties


October 3, 2016



The Department of Professional and Financial Regulation (www.maine.gov/pfr) will be offering free training sessions throughout the state during October, November and December regarding the Plumbers’ Examining Board’s recent adoption of the 2015 edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code.

The Board also adopted several amendments to the Code. The Board’s staff will be conducting the training sessions to update all plumbers and interested parties on the recent changes to the Code.

Although the training is not mandatory, the Board strongly encourages journeyman and master plumbers to take advantage of this free training opportunity. Local plumbing inspectors and code enforcement officers may also be interested in the training.

Session dates and times are listed at the bottom of this news release. Although registration is not required, attendance is limited based on the seating capacity at each location. Attendees are asked to arrive early to get a seat.

Code books will be available for purchase on the day of training at the State of Maine member price as listed below. Credit card and checks are acceptable payment methods. Checks should be made payable to “IAPMO”. Attendees who already have a copy of the 2015 Uniform Plumbing Code should bring it with them to the training.

Non-Member Price Member Price 2015 Uniform Plumbing Code (Soft Cover) $119.00 $95.20 2015 Uniform Plumbing Code (Loose Leaf-3 ring binder) $143.00 $114.00
