Medical Gas Certification Course
The SDAPHCC periodically hosts specialized certification courses based on demand. The Medical Gas Certification Course has been a popular option offered in recent years. If there is enough interest, the SDAPHCC will schedule a course. Typically this class is held in January or February. Please contact the SDAPHCC if you have a need for Medical Gas Certification (or any other specialized certification).
Each March, the SDAPHCC offers several continuing education courses throughout the state for plumbing contractors and journeymen.
The SDAPHCC Educational Foundation strives to elevate the p-h-c industry by providing scholarships to young people pursuing a p-h-c career.
Apprentice Contest Registration
Each year, SDAPHCC hosts an Apprentice Competition in conjunction with the Annual Convention.
Plumbing apprentices take a written test prior to the convention. The top 3 finishers, compete in a hands-on competition at convention. The winner then advances to the national competition at the national convention.
For HVAC Apprentices, the winner of a written test advances directly to the national competition.
This event engages apprentices and allows them to showcase their knowledge and skill.
Contestants have been selected for the 2019 competition. Registration for the 2020 competition will be open the fall of 2019.
