    what is the difference between craft and artisan in plumbing as in your course outline you have shown both takes two years

    1. PDF Education Editorial

      Artisan in plumbing takes 6 months while craft certificate is more advanced and takes 1-2 years. If your grade does not allow the craft certificate you go for artisan for 6 months and then apply for the craft certificate.
