Training Requirements for 16-Hour Limited Gas Work Qualification Training
Pursuant to Local Law 150 of 2016, beginning on January 1, 2020, the Department will require anyone performing gas work to possess either a Department-issued Master Plumber License or a Qualification for Gas Work.
Gas work, as defined by the NYC Fuel Gas Code §101.2, must be performed under the direct and continuing supervision of a Licensed Master Plumber (LMP). However, per the NYC Administrative Code Title 28 – Chapter 3, Article 318, the term gas work does not include required periodic inspections.
To perform limited gas work under the direct and continuing supervision of a LMP, as covered in section 101.2 of the New York City Fuel Gas Code, the applicant must have at least six months of full-time experience performing plumbing work under the direct and continuing supervision of a LMP.
