As part of a renewed commitment to apprentice and journeyman training, PHCC's Educational Foundation will be offering several new training programs, including: a revised and updated First-Year Plumbing Apprentice program; a First-Year HVACR Apprentice Program offered in collaboration with the Refrigeration Service Engineers Society and the Air Conditioning Contractors of America; and a Joint Plumbing and HVACR Instructor Conference, which will be offered April 5-6, 2006, in the Washington, D.C., area in conjunction with three other organizations.

Oversight of PHCC training programs was transferred from the national association to the Educational Foundation on July 1, 2005. For more information on programs, visit, or call 800/533-7694.
