The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors Association (PHCC) of Georgia, with help from Georgia Dept. of Labor, has received approval to run its Plumbing eLearning course for apprentices. The PHCC Educational Foundation has offered this course for quite some time nationwide, and Georgia has recently approved the eLearning program along with classroom training for plumbing apprentices.
The PHCC Educational Foundation offers Plumbing and HVACR apprentice eLearning courses for apprentices who need a non-traditional method of receiving their apprenticeship-related instruction. This program is recognized by the U.S. Dept. of Labor, Employment & Training Administration, Office of Apprenticeship, as a reasonable option for apprentice training. Each course is the equivalent of one year of classroom instruction. On-the-job training must be coordinated with a participating employer.
The PHCC GA believes we need to provide every opportunity to help get people back into the workforce. The online course allows students who don’t have available courses in their area or have hardships that prevent them from attending classes, finish their schooling and work towards becoming licensed contractors. The eLearning courses offer enhanced course quality and give students fast feedback on their performance.
For enrollment and pricing of the Plumbing eLearning Program, contact Ellen Whitaker at (678) 947-3473 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
