The BPEC Charity (BPEC Training Ltd)

The BPEC Charity is committed to identifying the education and training needs of those who work in the plumbing and heating industry and develop innovative solutions to address their needs.

We achieve this by supporting a number of awards to recognise and develop the knowledge and skills of those working in our industry and to benefit those less fortunate than ourselves, the production of safety awareness materials, regional and national plumbing skills competitions with the opportunity for winners to go on to the World Skills competition.

All funding is raised internally, we never ask for donations.
