Following the launching of the ten major infrastructure projects and the development of the public drainage services works, there is a substantial growth in the labour demand for plumber. Responding to the demand in the industry, the Construction Industry Council (CIC) collaborated with the Hong Kong Plumbing and Sanitary Ware Trade Association Limited (Plumbing Association) to offer a “Plumbing Cooperative Training Scheme” (PCTS) to attract new-blood to join the industry.
Members or the sub-contractors of Plumbing Association who are interested in the Scheme need to submit an application form indicating their proposal in regard to course contents, sub-contract agreement, trainers’ qualification, number of training places and particulars of training supervisor. Upon endorsed by Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), members can then recruit suitable trainees and provide training to the trainees under CIC’s supervision. Duration of training is 150 days.
