IOPSA has established a community of experts (CEP) in plumbing training to assist the QCTO to develop training programmes for entry level plumbing learners.
This CEP met on the 19th and 25th of February at the IOPSA National office and compiled two programmes for submission to the QCTO.
The one programme is called “Domestic water and drain repairer” at NFQ Level 2 and should be completed within two months. The second programme is called “The plumber’s hand” at NFQ level 3 and could be completed within 4-6 months.
Although the defined policy guiding these developments has not been approved. This ground-breaking work has been completed to the highest standard and with the industries best interests at heart.
Once through the internal processes the details will be shared with IOPSA members for input and comment.
Watch this space and participate actively in the new developments for our industry and encourage quality plumbing for all.
Skills development is central to the sustainability of plumbing as a relevant trade.
