The 2021 Plumbing Apprentice Contest offers third and fourth year plumbing apprentices a truly unique opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in a practical, hands-on event that is fun and exciting for everyone involved. This year’s event will take place in May at a location to be announced.
The apprentices will be required to rough-in a half bathroom on a pre-built module and the materials will be provided. Contestants will be given a layout, specification sheets, and the needed materials to compete in the contest. Contestants will not have to drill any holes, and will have approximately seven (7) hours to complete the contest. First, second and third place plaques are awarded for being the best, not for finishing first; we are looking for quality not quantity. Contestants must provide their own hand tools, and a tool list is attached for your convenience.
First and second place winners have a chance to attend the national Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractors Association competition in Indianapolis, IN, Oct. 2-4, 2019 Expenses may be offset for winners from member businesses.
