Trade up tourYoung Plumbers Club



We all know there’s a massive skills shortage at play in the NZ Plumbing Trades and if no one does anything about it we’ll be in some serious trouble in a few years.  


Plumbing World is taking our trades front and centre to selected schools throughout the country with our TRADE UP TOUR which is designed to shed some light on the plumbing trades and the careers on offer.  

We're thrilled to be working with Logan Dodds and Jesse James Cassrels as they head around NZ getting young people excited about the opportunities a career in the Plumbing trades has to offer. 

The opportunities the NZ Plumbing industry can offer young kiwis, coupled with the massive amount of work ahead mean the Plumbing Trades are a great career option for one and all.  And that all starts with an apprenticeship.
