Participation, Practices, Products and Protection: The four pillars of plumbing

The World Plumbing Day event at PICAC has become a key date for the Victorian plumbing industry to come together and celebrate plumbing’s contribution to society.

The event begins at 9:30am with registrations before the Industry Forum beginning at 10am.

This year the theme is ‘Participation, Practices, Products and Protection: The four pillars of plumbing’.  Shayne La Combre, Chair of the World Plumbing Council, will discuss the Four Pillars of Plumbing initiative being driven by the World Plumbing Council with presentations from further key industry stakeholders.

At 12pm the Trade Expo and luncheon will begin where attendees can check out the latest innovations from industry representatives and enjoy some industry networking.  At 2:30pm the winners of the World Plumbing Day Apprentice Skills Contest will be announced.

 

The World Plumbing Day Apprentice Skills Contest

The World Plumbing Day Apprentice Skills Contest is a firm favourite among the World Plumbing Day crowd.  Beginning at 6:15am and going through until 2pm, 3rd and 4th year apprentices take part in either the plumbing or sprinkler fitting contest. The winners from each contest take home a Reece Journeyman’s toolkit along with a cash prize while the three finalists from each contest become eligible for selection to fly to the US and represent PICAC and Australia at the United Association International Apprentice Skills Contest.
