Update to approved plumbing training units
Tuesday, 28 October 2014The VBA has approved an updated list of plumbing training competency units.
Under the Plumbing Regulations 2008, applicants must complete the approved units as part of a training qualification in order to be eligible for registration/licensing in one or more classes of plumbing work or specialised plumbing work.
The updated list of approved units, which is effective immediately, was published on 9 October 2014 and replaces the previous list gazetted on 1 November 2012. The amendments reflect changes to qualifications and units made in the latest version of the Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package, however, it does not significantly alter the training requirements set by the VBA.
Transitional arrangements have been included to ensure that apprentices currently enrolled in training competencies under the superseded list of approved units will not be disadvantaged by these changes.
For more information on plumbing licensing and registration, including a link to the Gazette notice containing the approved units, refer to the Plumbing Licensing and Registration section of the VBA website.
