Description

This qualification provides a trade outcome in plumbing.

Occupational titles may include:

  • Plumber
  • Plumber and drainer
  • Plumber and gasfitter
  • Gasfitter
  • Roof plumber.

The qualification has core and elective unit of competency requirements that cover common and specialist skills for the plumbing industry in six specialist streams:

  • Stream 1 Water
  • Stream 2 Sanitary
  • Stream 3 Drainage
  • Stream 4 Mechanical services
  • Stream 5 Roofing
  • Stream 6 Gas services.

The plumbing industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely simulated workplace environment and this qualification requires all units of competency to be delivered in this context.

Completion of the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction Training for Construction Work (ASCC 2007) is required before entering a construction work site. Achievement of unit CPCCOHS1001A covers this requirement.

Pathways Information

This qualification is suitable for an Australian Apprenticeship pathway.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

This is a licensed occupation. Check with relevant state and territory licensing and regulatory authorities. State and territory jurisdictions may have different regulatory requirements.
