FALLS CHURCH, VA — The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors — National Association (PHCC) Apprenticeship and Journeyman Training Committee began reviewing and updating its Plumbing Apprenticeship Program at a recent committee meeting held here.

According to PHCC, initial efforts will focus on year one of the program, with subsequent updates for the remainder of the program to follow.
