I think either would work, but oil and gas is booming in the US at the moment, so that might be easiest for a few years, which would give him the time to explore how to get a plumbers license in the US (BTW trade licenses are issued at the state level).

Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners Range from starting from scratch, taking exams, doing an apprentice year or anything in between, so start reading that I'd guess.

Though off shore might be the way to go.
