WA plumbers and TAFE educators join forces to create Plumbing Industry Trade Day

The Master Plumbers and Gasfitters Association of WA < 1 mins read

The Master Plumbers and Gasfitters Association of WA is inviting everyone in the plumbing industry to a free Plumbing Industry Trade Day. Media representatives with an interest in the building and construction sector will also be welcome.

The event is being hosted at North Metropolitan TAFE (NMTAFE)’s Balga campus on Thursday 13 July 2023 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

A major drawcard for the event is that the impressive trade training facilities at the Balga campus will be open, giving attendees the opportunity to see what today’s state-of-the-art apprentice training involves.

There will also be a ‘mini trade show’ area where an array of plumbing industry suppliers will display their products and services.

Murray Thomas, CEO of The Master Plumbers and Gasfitters Association of WA, said,  “I encourage anyone with an interest in plumbing or plumbing training to attend the event and see for themselves the outstanding training facilities at Balga.”

“The event is a combined effort by this Association, which has a membership base of hands-on licensed plumbing contractors, and the TAFE system that provides the training that leads to plumbing qualifications.” 

The Association is driving an industry strategy of partnering with TAFE to give educators and plumbing industry practitioners a communications channel for exchanging information. The Plumbing Industry Trade Day is a direct result of this strategy.

ACA urges Queensland Government to establish independent Olympic Games Delivery Agency

With the imminent announcement of a new Premier, the Australian Constructors Association (ACA) is urging the Queensland Government to reconsider its approach to delivering the 2032 Olympics. ACA CEO Jon Davies said the decision by the former Premier to establish a coordination office can now be reversed, and an independent Olympic Delivery Authority established to ensure bipartisan political support. “Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk will leave a lasting infrastructure legacy from her time in office but any transition to a new Premier provides an opportunity for fresh thinking on how this is delivered,” said Mr Davies. “In particular, the incoming Premier should…

Government delivers tradies a Christmas blow

7 December 2023 Attributable to Master Builders Australia CEO Denita Wawn: In what is starting to feel like Groundhog Day for bad Government process, the Government with the support of some crossbench Senators have decided to ram through aspects of its damaging IR ‘Closing Loopholes’ Bill. Any remaining trust between the business community and the Albanese Government has today been eroded. It is disappointing that Senators David Pocock and Jacqui Lambie did not consult with the industry on any potential amendments before doing this deal. The unions are today celebrating their Christmas gift while tradies and Australians who are grappling…
