Specialists in this field should be skilled in using a variety of tools and equipment to plan and design systems and install and test them ensuring compliance with environmental and energy efficiency standards. Professional plumbing and heating technicians also use modern software and mobile apps to control such systems.

Plumbing and heating technicians can find employment in departments operating major facilities, at factories, plants, and similar enterprises involved in heating and plumbing work, or they may be self-employed. The demand for plumbers results from new construction and the need to maintain and repair plumbing and heating systems in existing residential and other buildings.
