Practical skills for you and your employer
This training program is appropriate for you if you’re already working the plumbing industry as a Drainer. Pick up an additional qualification as you work your way through your apprenticeship or as on-the-job additional training.
The plumbing industry strongly recommends that training and asssessment leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely simulated workplace environment.

You will have the opportunity to work on full-sized projects at our Heidelberg campus in some of Victoria’s most technologically advanced building and construction training facilities. These include computer labs for any theory classes and workshop space and materials to help you learn practical skills, which combine to create a dynamic learning environment.
Satisfactory completion of this course will give you a competitive edge and fine-tuning of skills.
