Henry Ford once said: “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty”. Henry’s passion for learning materialised in the Model T Ford and invention of the assembly line – two innovations that revolutionised American society and molded the world we live in today.
Without the desire to learn, whether via necessity or curiosity, Henry would most likely have lived out his days plowing the fields on his family farm in Michigan.
And who knows… we could still be travelling around by horse and cart, and burdened by inefficient manufacturing processes.
Learning is the acquisition of knowledge or skills through study, experience, or being taught. The simplicity of learning means that you know more today than you did yesterday.
It’s the same with your job.
You learn your trade during your apprenticeship. You have a teacher who will help hone your technical knowledge in the classroom and an employer who will guide you through the practicality of the job itself and help you through real life experiences.
Unless there’s a point during this period where you are told that you know everything there is to know about your chosen field, why should your learning stop?
We can’t let our industry stop learning and our members get ‘old’, so Master Plumbers has developed a continuing professional development (CPD) program to provide an avenue for all plumbers to keep up to date with their plumbing knowledge.
Think about how confident you would be walking into your doctor’s office not knowing if they had done any training since their formal qualification? Would you feel assured that they would be able to correctly diagnose whatever ailment you presented with?
The same can be said for plumbing, consumers are wanting their plumber to have the most up-to-date technical skills and knowledge of regulatory guidelines. Master Plumbers’ members that participate and record CPD are now able to provide this assurance to consumers.
