#QPW17 City & Guilds Certificate

Quality Plumber Week 2017 to champion industry skills

This year’s Quality Plumber Week is aiming to build upon the success of previous years to unite the plumbing and heating industry.

The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHC) wants the industry to champion the diverse skills of plumbing and heating engineers and celebrate the important role that they play in keeping people healthy and safe. CEO John Thompson (pictured) says: “As an apprentice-trained and qualified plumbing and heating engineer, Quality Plumber Week is an initiative that has a real significance to me as it seeks to support the many quality plumbers and the businesses they work in, by promoting the best aspects of our industry.”

The key messages this year are the importance of continuous skills development and to remind the public about instructing appropriately qualified plumbing and heating engineers. It also aims to provide consumers with advice for sourcing a quality plumber while reminding them to always check credentials

“Quality Plumber Week [2-8 October 2017] aims to unite the industry to showcase the important work we do in keeping society healthy, warm and safe,” adds John. “I hope that everyone will come together to celebrate our industry and help raise the awareness among consumers of the many highly qualified and proficient professionals we have in our industry.

“You can get involved on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn using #QPW17. We want to see photos of you with your quality work and installations. We also want to see you with your qualification certificates – so get posting.”

There is a daily prize give-away during the week and a final prize draw, in which one plumbing and heating engineer will win a prize bundle of a Fernox TF1 Omega filter and chemicals, Drayton’s Wiser smart heating control pack, and a best practice pack from Adey.
