Albany -- A need for qualified plumbers in south Georgia and nationwide sparked a new program at Albany Technical College.    

The new 18 month diploma plumbers program will begin with the winter quarter of 2008. Area builders, contractors, and developers pushed the college to add the program because of the immediate need for well trained plumbers.  

"All of your specialized trades, such as electricity, plumbing, there's really a shortage across the nation of those workers and workers who are competent enough to understand what each structure might need," said Plumbing Instructor Richard Walker.  

The program will start at a beginning skill level. Graduates will earn a diploma and have the qualification of an apprentice plumber.
