World Plumbing Day is celebrated globally on March 11. It is a day to acknowledge and celebrate the vital contribution of skilled plumbing professionals and the essential role plumbing plays in societal health and wellbeing.
To recognise World Plumbing Day in 2022, PICAC hosted a suite of events at our campuses in Victoria, NSW and QLD in celebration of all things plumbing.
|PICAC hosted the annual World Plumbing Day Apprentice Skills Contest at our Brunswick Campus on March 11. The competition brought together 6 plumbing and 6 sprinkler fitting apprentices from Victoria, QLD, and for the first time ever, NSW.|
Alongside the Apprentice Skills Contest, PICAC hosted a World Plumbing Day BBQ lunch for all apprentices, students and staff at the Brunswick campus.
The Apprentice Skills Contest kicked off bright and early on World Plumbing Day, and it was a fiercely fought contest to the very end. A big thank you to all who competed and congratulations to the finalists in both competitions.
