Skilled plumbing technicians are in high demand and enjoy rewarding and stable careers. If you are considering a career in this field, getting professional training through an apprenticeship will be a game-changer. In this post, we will explore reasons why pursuing professional training is a wise investment.
Enrolling as an apprentice with a registered training organisation such as MPA Skills gives you access to comprehensive plumbing training, setting you up with a strong foundation in the plumbing trade through hands-on training and theoretical education. As an MPA Skills apprentice, you will not only receive high-quality classroom learning, but you will also be mentored by field officers throughout your apprenticeship.
You might see plumbing certificate programs that are available online or offered by other training organisations, but many of them may not be accredited, so it is essential to get your training via registered training organisations that offer nationally recognised programs. This will not only enhance your expertise but also increases your chances of getting higher wages and potential advancements within the industry.
As the largest trainer and employer of plumbing apprentices in Western Australia, MPA Skills is a preferred provider of plumbing career training, and we have courses to suit individuals no matter where you are in your career. Our programs range from school-based pre-apprenticeships to 11-week full-time pre-apprenticeships for school leavers and career changers. We also offer full apprenticeships and advanced training courses to those already trade qualified.
The demand for qualified plumbing technicians continues to grow, providing abundant job prospects. Undertaking plumbing training helps position you for a rewarding and financially stable future. Whether you choose to work for a plumbing company, start your own business, or pursue opportunities in construction, maintenance, or renovation projects, a formal plumbing education sets you on the right track.
If you are considering a plumbing career, now is the perfect time. With the half-price training fees for apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship currently on offer through the WA Recovery Plan, and the Lower Fees, Local Skills initiative, courses are heavily subsidised. This makes it the best possible time to start a career in the plumbing field.
