Do I need a plumbing license to work in Georgia?

According to Georgia Code 43-14-8, any individual engaging in the business of plumbing must have a Master Plumbing License.

  1. submit a completed application and non-refundable fee with documentation of the required experience and other qualifications and reference information,
    2. submit a completed examination scheduling form with fee, and
