Longview ISD runs a free six-week adult plumbing course.
Registration for classes is in person from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Saturday at Longview High School’s CATE building at 201 E. Tomlinson Parkway.
Classes consist of a six-week beginner’s program and take place twice a week. Participants can choose between Class A, Monday and Wednesday, or Class B, Tuesday and Thursday. Both classes will take place on the Longview High School campus on these days from 5pm to 7pm.
The course is offered free of charge thanks to a grant from AAON Coil Products in Longview.
Harold Gober, a plumbing teacher at Longview High School, is the class teacher and said attendees will learn how to connect a faucet and sink, learn about different tools and how to use them properly, and more.
Gober said the main goal of the courses is to provide knowledge about general plumbing and to get more people interested and involved in the industry. He also wants participants to learn basic plumbing skills and how to keep plumbing jobs under control.
“They will know what to do to secure the water or turn it off or if something happens in the middle of the night,” he said. “You’ll be able to secure everything so that you can wait until morning and there won’t be a major disaster.”
