Three proud members of the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE) received Master Plumber Certificates at the Glaziers’ Hall in London.
Organised by the Livery Companies Skill Council (LCSC) and hosted by the Worshipful Company of Glaziers, certificates on the day were awarded by the Rt Hon Lord Mayor of London, Alderman Charles Bowman.
David Gammage, of Gravesend, John Hamilton Murray, of Hull and Tyrone Tash, of Uxbridge, were all worthy recipients of the prestigious award, which is only attained by the crème-de-la-crème of the plumbing & heating industry.
David, employed by C Watkins Plumbing as a maintenance/senior service engineer, said: “It’s a great honour. It’s really nice to have 18 years’ worth of hard work and experience recognised in this way.”
John, a subject matter engineer (water) for Sodexo Facilities, said: “I am proud to say I am a member of CIPHE and through the Master Plumber Scheme I have gained a greater understanding of what the Institute is achieving. I will continue to uphold the high standards expected of me, in both mentoring those committed to a plumbing career and as a holder of the Master Certificate.”
Tyrone manages his own business, 24-7 TT Plumbing & Heating, specialising in emergency call outs. Tyrone said: “It’s great to be here today. Looking back, it’s been a really long journey. You don’t realise how far you have come and what you have achieved until you get to the end. To be a Master Plumber is fantastic.”
