National Certificates in Plumbing and Gasfitting
Certificate in Applied Technology (Plumbing and Gasfitting) graduate
CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: "I wanted to get a recognised trade qualification that I could take anywhere in the world with me. This was a change of career for me, and it’s something I’m really enjoying.
You get to meet some great people working in other trades, and your friends will always invite you over for dinner with the hidden agenda to look at work they want done. Next, I want to get my registration for plumbing and gasfitting, and either start my own company or take my skills overseas."
BEST THINGS ABOUT UNITEC: "It’s a fantastic programme for the theory side of things. When we where doing the plumbing for the houses built by Unitec carpentry students, the theory work that we had done leading up to that point was really helpful. I also found that most of the work covered in the bay workshop can be applied to our everyday work."
