The Water Authority of Fiji has welcomed the announcement by the Minister of Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum on the licensing of plumbers during the 2022/2023 National Budget.

CEO, Dr Amit Chanan says that plumbers provide an essential service in Fiji’s society, and the quality of their work underpins the safety of our homes and commercial buildings.

He says they are grateful to this provision, and this is something that they have been working on for some time as it is very critical to have qualified and certified licensed plumbers in Fiji.

Dr Chanan adds that the necessary training facilities and examinations for Fijians who want to apply and get certified in this trade will be facilitated by the Fiji National University.

FNU Chancellor and Chair of Council, Tessa Price adds that the plumbers’ license will integrate and replace the waterworks fitters’ license and drain layers license previously issued by Water & Sewerage Department and the Municipal Councils respectively in the past.
