Carl Marcic from Alice Springs is 43 and one of just 10 apprentice plumbers from around the country to receive a $3,000 Grant from Rheem Australia. Carl is currently juggling two jobs – and while that’s not unusual for apprentices, what is unusual is that Carl is also an acting Sergeant with the NT Police.
He’s the dad of five young kids and has the dream to one day run his own plumbing business and have his kids work with him. He got into plumbing on the side by helping out a close friend with his business – and he found he loved it. It helps that he has two really great employers and has the flexibility to do both jobs.
