2016 INDIANA PLUMBING EXAMINATION PROGRAM

Once an apprentice has completed the apprenticeship program and the school has certified he/she has passed the practical examination, an application to sit for the exam is sent to the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency. Once they approve the application, they notify ICC and the candidate is assigned a number. That number is used to go online and the candidate will register to take the exam. There is a Candidate Information Bulletin which is designed to answer your questions about the test. That bulletin is available at www.iccsafe.org/contractor. If you have further questions contact ICC at 866-750-2579.

Where to apply: Indiana Plumbing Commission, 402 W. Washington St., Room W072, Indianapolis, IN 46204 and their telephone no. is (317) 234-8800. Once approved, you will receive an email notice that you are authorized to schedule and pay for your examination.

The Indiana Professional Licensing agency has outsourced the written section of the Journeyman and Plumbing Contractors exam to the International Code Council (ICC). The ICC Indiana Exams are all offered by computer at a network of testing centers across the State operated by ICC testing partner PROV. Please call ICC at 866-750-2579 to schedule a test date.
