Re: What is a "Master _______"?
Master Plumber is a term which is used in about half of the States in the United States. Depending on the State you are working in it may require length of time on the job (5+ years in most), paying a fee, passing a test and continuing education.
The difference between a Journeyman Plumber and a Master Plumber (in States which use the term) is a Journeyman Plumber does all of the work a Master Plumber does but still works under the supervision of a Master Plumber. A Master Plumber is a plumber who supervises others and does not need to be supervised by others. I would hope anyone with 10 or more years in Plumbing would qualify as a Master Plumber by default. Many in this forum are Master Plumbers whether they have been issues the title or not.
