The P-H-C industry is currently lacking the necessary skilled labor to supply all facets of work in progress. Without training, this problem will only increase. The PHCC is helping secure the industry's future. The contractor will be a more competitive force, and the community will benefit from improved quality of finished work.

Educated and professional workers are in high demand in the Plumbing Heating Cooling Industry. The PHCC Training Programs offer the individual a chance to "earn while you learn." The programs combine classroom training courses with on-the-job training. This method of education allows individuals to combine real life experiences with applied knowledge. Students are employed by contractor sponsors who provide on-the-job experience.
