Something Plumbers may not always get is recognition for their continuous contribution to society for preventing things such as hot water scalding, legionnaires' disease, water inefficiency, lead in water supplies and pollution. They say prevention is better than cure and these issues can easily occur through improper plumbing training and maybe it's time we take our hats off to the plumbers of the country because if it wasn't for them, maybe we wouldn't have running water that's safe to drink! This is all a huge objective of World Plumbing Day which is being initiated by the World Plumbing Council on March 11th!

Kevin Wellman, chief executive officer of the CIPHE, said...

Good plumbers really do protect the health and welfare of the nation, and it is high time that plumbing professionals got the recognition they deserve. There is no doubt there are unscrupulous tradespeople in the industry, however, the majority are highly skilled and work to an exceptional standard. These are the people the Institute represents"

Perhaps plumbing has become one of the most overlooked aspects of the construction industry in terms of keeping the public safe from a lot of things we take for granted? With regards to what Mr Wellman had to say about the institute representing the highly skilled plumbers working to an exceptional standard, Able Skills can honestly say we have heavily contributed to making sure plumbers get the CORRECT Plumbing Qualifications and Training needed to keep up with the modern world. There have been reports of poorly done work in the news and Able Skills en-devours to put an end to such work by providing exceptional Plumbing Courses and giving the industry the training the public demands. Mr Wellman continued to say...

Able Skills Plumbing Courses

Standards must be raised!

“We cannot ignore that each year many hundreds of people, including the vulnerable are affected by poorly designed, installed and maintained plumbing systems. At the CIPHE we are currently working in partnership with other leading industry bodies to help raise standards of education and raise concerns direct with government on skills, compliance and safety issues.

Able Skills Plumbing Courses are City & Guilds Accredited

As an educational charity we encourage consumers to make the right choices when it comes to employing a tradesperson. However, we still recognise that in the current climate, more needs to be done to make all plumbing systems safe and sustainable. This is why we continue to back the introduction of a licence to practice which is prevalent in many countries across the globe.

This could be huge news for the construction industry as plumbers possibly needing a 'licence to practice' in the future will most certainly change the way the sector is run. It's issues such as these that will be discussed on World Plumbing Day and really acts as the perfect point to bring topics like these into discussion! Who knows, if needing a licence is introduced, then it could even change the way our Plumbing Courses are run! What's your view? Let us know!
