PHCC of California Contractors sell scrap copper and donate it to the PHCC Educational Foundation who, in turn, donate 100% of the proceeds to foster organizations statewide that assist children in the foster system in finding forever homes.

Members have increased employee loyalty and engagement, and achieve true satisfaction in knowing that they are making a significant difference in the lives of children.

When I think of all the reasons why I chose plumbing as a profession, I feel that when you acquire a trade skill you will have a job for life. When it comes to plumbing I learn new things just about everyday.

I joined the PHCC because I was lucky enough to be offered the opportunity by my employer. I knew of the benefits from previous students and could not pass it up. The PHCC has greatly expanded my knowledge of plumbing and general construction.
