I chose plumbing and heating as a career because I would be following in my family’s footsteps, as both my grandfather and father are plumbers. I also got exposure to the trades at a young age by working for my dad. In the future, I hope to pursue more mechanical tickets and hopefully one day run my own company.
I got involved with Skills Competitions through my instructor who encouraged me to participate.
I am in the process of building my first house.
I believe that numeracy is an instrumental Essential Skill to have for a career in this field because plumbing is based on of critical measurements. Therefore you must have a good understanding of mathematics to be successful as a plumber.
