The Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre (PICAC) is a world-first industry-led registered training organisation offering integrated education and training programs for the plumbing industry.

The Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre (PICAC) is a world-first industry-led registered training organisation offering integrated education and training programs for the plumbing industry.

A not-for-profit organisation, PICAC was formed through an industry partnership supported by the Plumbing Trades Employees Union, Master Plumbers and Mechanical Services Association of Australia, National Fire Industry Association, Air Conditioning Mechanical Contractors Association and the Plumbing Joint Training Fund.

PICAC’s objective is to provide world-class training to the critical, highly skilled trade of plumbing. Course offerings range from entry level and introductory courses, such as pre-apprenticeships in plumbing to the Certificate III in Plumbing through to occupational health and safety training and specialised courses, such as medical gas or gas appliance servicing.

Unlike many traditional training providers, PICAC has invested in new technologies and continues to grow and evolve with the industry. The ability to partner with major firms, including manufacturers and distributors and to invest in premium capital equipment and training methodologies gives PICAC’s students the best chance for prospective employer confidence.
