Victorian apprentice impresses in Indonesia at Community Plumbing Challenge 2017 Community Plumbing Challenge 2017 (CPC2017) Design Week was held in the first week of August at a school in West Java. Aidan Ward, apprentice plumber at Laser Plumbing Sale, worked with plumbers, plumbing engineers and architects from Australia, India, Indonesia and the USA to determine the best solution for the school. As part of Construction Week they renovated the existing toilet facilities, installed additional toilets, constructed a new outdoor handwashing area, installed two new elevated water tanks for improved water supply and installed a new wastewater system.

Save the date for World Plumbing Day 11 March is recognised globally as World Plumbing Day and provides an opportunity for our industry to inform the wider community about the vital work that plumbers do, particularly in terms of health and sanitation. We know how important and rewarding our work is and World Plumbing Day gives us all a chance to celebrate this wonderful vocation. Master Plumbers will be at PICAC’s annual event which includes an Industry Forum, Trade Expo, Luncheon and of course, the Apprentice Skills Contest. Contact events@picac.vic.edu.au for further information.

CPC2017 is a World Plumbing Council initiative together with the International Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Foundation. Master Plumbers have also been recently confirmed as sponsors for CPC2018. For more information head to the Community Plumbing Challenge Facebook page.
