Cameron Pracy, a former Industry Links student from Warnbro Community High School was recently awarded the 2019 Rheem Apprentice Plumber recognition award.

Cameron took part in the Industry Links Program as part of his studies.  The program allows students to complete compulsory schooling 3 days a week as well as a day at TAFE and a day of work placement.

Cameron, who is known for his positive work ethic, reliability and initiative; followed his career path in Plumbing by completing a Certificate II in Plumbing over Year 11 and 12 at TAFE and work placement with Drip Hunters in Port Kennedy. As the end of Year 12 approached Cameron sought assistance from Deb and her team at the school to help his host employer with information regarding taking him on as an apprentice.  With assistance from CTF, the employer was provided with further information and advice on apprenticeships. Deb Johnson commented that ‘we were so pleased when Cameron came to us at the beginning of this year, to let us know he had started his apprenticeship with Drip Hunters and to recently hear that he won an apprentice award’.

Where to next for Cameron? Once Cameron has completed his apprenticeship, he would like to become a plumber in the army and provide disaster relief in developing countries.  In the meantime, he is enjoying his apprenticeship and his boss is singing his praises.
