Connor Cruden wins Medal of Excellence

Connor Cruden, from Cowie Plumbing and Heating, was awarded the Medallion for Excellence at this year’s WorldSkills plumbing contest after a two-year wait to take part in the global showcase. Connor won his place in the international contest when he was an apprentice and became the SkillPLUMB champion in 2019.

After a tightly fought contest, he came seventh out of 20 plumbing and heating finalists from around the world. Connor had this to say about the competition: “I had trained hard, and I entered the contest confidently. I’d like to thank SNIPEF for all the help, assistance, and encouragement they provided to get me to this point – and also for a very generous, and very unexpected, financial consideration they gave me to mark my effort”.
