Gary Ford has been a licensed Master Plumber since 1978, certified ASSE 5110 & ASSE 5130 technician since 1998.

Gary graduated from North Hennepin Community College in Building Inspection Technology, which allowed him to serve as Plumbing Inspector for the City of Fridley as well as the City of Maple Grove.

In addition to inspections, Gary taught for the State of Minnesota State Building Code Division with the BIT program and was also the head plumbing instructor for Century College. Once Century moved away from the plumbing program, Gary began his own education program. Plumbers have been expanding their knowledge with Gary for decades, no matter the industry subject matter.

In 2018, Gary transitioned ownership of his commercial plumbing business to his son, Cole. Since, he has focused on education for plumbing professionals, from Apprentice to Master.
