Michigan Plumbers, It’s Not Too Late!

You can STILL do your 5-Hour Code Update course ONLINE in VIDEO!

If you are audited, you'll fare better having completed your code update course a few days late than if you'd never completed the training at all.

The state of Michigan will suspend and/or revoke your license if you are audited and you have not completed your code update.
