Plumbing Training Day

Monday, 15th September 2014

MPA alongside Reece Plumbing Supplies held a Plumbing Training Day earlier this month at Hallett Cove R-12 School. This training day was held for schools involved in the delivery of VET Plumbing.

The training involved the various applications of Auspex products, as well as the range of fittings and practical demonstrations of installations.

As part of the training day, Harry Stassinopoulos - Deputy Principal of Hallett Cove R-12, joined the group to learn more about the VET training in Plumbing and the career pathways that are available to students.

Harry was impressed with the enthusiasm of the group and their willingness to learn about the new products and introduce these products into their courses.

"The benefits to the students will be huge as they will be able to arrange work experience placements and have an understanding of the products and equipment used in the Plumbing Industry before they start their placements. They will also be better prepared to enter employment through their exposure to the VET courses."

"The employment outcomes have been good through these courses with a number of students taking up employment offers through the year."

"Students who have participated in the VET Plumbing courses are well prepared for the industry with an appreciation of safety, products and work ethics."

The MPA has provided VET in Schools training to 85 students in 2014.
