This is an apprenticeship program.
This program provides training for plumbing apprentices and covers the practical and theoretical aspects of the industry.
You will specialise in gas-fitting, water, sanitary, roofing and drainage during the first three stages of training. If your employer agrees, you can choose to complete a fourth stage - mechanical services.
After completing your apprenticeship and your Journeyman’s exam you can apply to the Victorian Building Authority to become a registered plumber.

RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, studios, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work. These are primarily in English.
You will have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments.
Trained plumbers install and repair equipment such as: boilers, pumps, heating and cooling systems, natural gas appliances, water tanks, solar heating systems, sinks, basins and showers.
Plumbers may be self-employed, employed in small firms, or employed in large construction firms.
With new construction continuing to show growth, the need for maintenance of infrastructure is increasing. Therefore, the demand for skilled professionals in the plumbing trade remains strong, and graduates can expect excellent employment opportunities.
