J&J Plumbing and Gasfitting World Skills, NZ Plumbing and Heating winner 2016
" I began studying for my certificate in plumbing and gas fitting at MIT instead of doing year 13 at school, and I’m so glad I did. It offered great facilities and our learning was very hands-on, which made it fun. We also had great support throughout from our tutors, who were mostly ex-tradesmen. Their strong industry connections meant we had a head-start when it came to securing a job after graduating.
I got a job before I had even completed my studies. It has a lot of variety including, plumbing, gas fitting, drain laying, roofing, driving diggers and lifts, as well as organising jobs. Thanks to the support of my MIT tutors I’ve also participated in the Worldskills competition.
If you’re considering MIT, I’d say go for it; It can really take you places. You’ll be well qualified and prepared for the workplace. "
" I got a job in my chosen field before I even finished my course at MIT. I’m an apprentice at Econair Services, so my job involves working with fully qualified technicians to help install service air conditioning units in big industrial buildings. Our clients include Sky TV, Auckland Airport and a number of large offices.
High school wasn’t the right fit for me so I started the MIT Trades Academy and became full-time halfway through my final year of school.
Studying for a New Zealand Certificate in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning was a great choice. Our teachers created a good learning environment, classes were always interesting and we were well prepared for the workplace. I also made great friends during my studies.
Now I’m working in a job I love, with supportive colleagues and no two days are the same. "
