Peter Miles, head teacher of plumbing at North Sydney College in Australia, is researching into training and plumbing in the UK, according to HVP in the article Plumbing Down Under is No Pipe Dream on June 20. He chose to research the industry in the UK after recognising that a large number of plumbers wishing to study at his centre were from the UK and Ireland.
Peter Miles, who was awarded a World Plumbing Council Education and Training Scholarship last year, has already visited a public and private training provider and plans to travel across the UK and Scotland. During his visits, he was surprised by the standards in the UK and impressed with the duty of care in the workplace for apprentices. Miles noted the differences between the industry in UK and Australia, commenting on how the UK’s teaching methods are not standardised across training centres like in Australia, but the awarding bodies that require certain standards to be met ensure that all UK plumbers are working towards the same goal.
According to HVP, Peter Miles noted the high standard of the British plumbers and heating engineers who meet Gas Safe requirements, referring to them as “superior” to plumbers in Australia.
The experts at Plumber 24 Hours who are renowned for their high quality Richmond emergency plumbers and plumbers throughout London and the UK have welcomed the comments. A representative from Plumber 24 Hours commented on the standard of plumbers in the UK:
“It is no surprise that plumbers in the UK are considered to be of a high standard. Training centres throughout the UK teach plumbing apprentices to a high standard to ensure that once they are qualified, they are providing the best and most efficient service to their customers. The criteria that plumbers from the UK are expected to meet help to ensure that all plumbers are working to the same high standards.”
