Hi guys my name is Geordie im pretty new to the whole forum idea but the reason im blogging is cause im desperate to find an apprenticeship in the plumbing industrie. I left my job as pest control tech in Feb of this year to seek out a career in plumbing, ive recently just completed a 6month pre-vocational stage1 course in plumbing at Skills Tech TAFE Eagle Farm, Brisbane and as part of the course I also completed 200 hours of unpaid work experience with a licensed plumber which i thoroughly enjoyed. We were warned at the time during our plumbing course that it would be a hard industrie to break into due to the whole economy in termoil. I'm 28 years old and was also told my age was going to have a big factor on weather I get an appreticeship or not, I have been telling every plumber I talked to I was willing to go a junior wage just to secure that job but unfortunately companies could not do that. I beg please point me in the right direction I'm a hard worker and no stranger to getting my hands dirty, I live in Brisbane and even if a plumber could use me as a labourer just anything to get my foot in the door. Last of all just want to say thanks for having a read of my thread and hope you all have a good day!
