PLUMBJOB IN THE PIPELINE
PLUMBER James Sharvell completed his certificate IV through TAFE Queensland SkillsTech last year and plans to upskill with a diploma in 2017 – with a view to starting his own business.
“The certificate IV was pretty technical but the diploma will basically be the engineering side to everything,” he says.
“Hopefully the diploma won’t just make me irreplaceable (in the face of automation) but broaden my knowledge in all types of plumbing.”
