Congratulations to Box Hill Institute alumnus, Brandon Bresolin, who has taken out Plumbing Apprenticeship Victoria's highest industry award available to plumbing apprentices: the Andrew Letten Gold Medal. He also won the Frank Maskell General Plumbing Award.
Brandon completed his Certificate III in Plumbing with Box Hill Institute in 2018. The Andrew Letten Gold Medal Award is the highest honour provided by the Master Plumbers and the highest industry award provided to apprentices. The Frank Maskell General Plumbing Award is presented to a current or recent apprentice who has excelled in the area of sanitary, drainage or roofing plumbing.
The awards were announced during the Plumbing and Fire Industry Awards, which was attended by over 500 delegates. These Awards are a joint initiative driven by the Master Plumbers Association, the Plumbing and Pipe Trades Employees Union, the National Fire Industry Association, the Association of Hydraulic Service Consultants Australia and the Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre.
The aim of the Awards is to recognise excellence in the training and development achievements of individuals and companies, and to recognise professionals at every stage of their career and across the various disciplines.
This year, the Plumbing and Fire Industry Awards was also part of the World Plumbing Conference, which is a triennial conference offering an opportunity for the global plumbing community to share knowledge and expertise.
