Welcome to
Industry Connection for Excellence

Growing your own career and our economy

Industry Connection for Excellence is a next generation training provider based in East Tāmaki and Otaki, servicing the North Island. We specialise in learning programmes for specialist trades; specifically Plumbing, Gasfitting and Drainlaying (PGD) apprentices.

Established in 2016, we are one of the only vocational training providers run by and for the trades themselves. If you learn with us, you will be taught by the people who were on the front line, with real world experience and insights to share. ICE is directly connected to industry, the experts on the tools.

Helping you gain qualifications is at the heart of what we do. Through our programmes you can gain the NZ Certificate in Plumbing, Gasfitting & Drainlaying.

Since we opened, we have gone from strength to strength, and so have our apprentices. We’d love you to join us on your PGD journey as well.
