2019 Rheem Apprentice Plumber Grants are now open

The annual Rheem Apprentice Plumber Grants are now open. 

Our customer Andrew Goode, from Water Tight Canberra, was a recipient of the 2018 Rheem Apprentice Plumber Grant. Read how the grant helped Andrew

Andrew was a second-year apprentice plumber studying at the Canberra Institute of Technology’s trade centre at the time of winning the grant. He’d heard about the award before, but it was one of our Fyshwick trade sales consultants and his boss Tom Martin, who encouraged Andrew to apply. And he’s sure stoked he did! Andrew used the $3,000 grant towards the cost of his tools.  

The local WIN News was quick to share the story of how Rheem puts its support back into the plumbing industry.  

Watch how Andrew’s Rheem grant helped him.
