MPA Skills offers Pre-Apprenticeships for Plumbing
A pre-apprenticeship course (52700WA Certificate II in Plumbing), with a work experience component, will give a student a true insight in to the industry they are considering. This is the first step to potentially gaining a full-time apprenticeship and demonstrates to a potential employer that a candidate has a real idea of what the job is about and what is expected of them.
The units completed on the pre-apprenticeship will be credited against the training completed in your first year of your apprenticeship. MPA Skills will direct you in securing your work experience placement, which forms part of the ‘job hunting’ training each student receives.
Our aim is to make you employable which could ultimately lead to employment by our own Apprentice Employment division for a number of successful candidates.
To apply for the 10 week full time 52700WA Certificate II in Plumbing you must complete the below steps:
Please note: you must be 17 years of age or older to complete this program. Students currently enrolled in a school based Plumbing pre apprenticeship program cannot enrol in the full time program.
