Migrant Plumbers

If you are a plumber from outside of Australia

Holding an overseas plumbing qualification does not make you automatically eligible to perform plumbing work in Western Australia.

The two pathways to having your international plumbing qualifications or experience recognised are detailed on the
migrant plumbers page of the Plumbers Licensing Board (PLB) website.

Once you have achieved the necessary requirements you will then be able to apply to the PLB for a licence, which is required to carry out any plumbing work in WA.
