SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL / KMSS) – Caddo Parish Schools welcomed the Louisiana State Plumbing Board to Shreveport on Thursday.
The board has selected the Caddo Career and Technology Center as the northern location for the state plumber exams. They chose the facility over others in Shreveport because of its educational strategy and accessibility to the surrounding areas.
Prior to this selection, practicing plumbers had to travel to Baton Rouge to obtain a state license.

“Shreveport is easily accessible from Monroe, Alexandria, Lake Charles and it is a burden to travel to Baton Rouge from anywhere to take this exam,” said Trey Giglio, a member of the State Plumbing Board of Louisiana.
“So that takes some of the pressure off, supports the mission that you have here in the Caddo Career and Technology Center, and promotes awareness of the craft.”
Giglio said they will be running tests as early as Saturday June 26th and will do so on an ongoing basis.
