Rafael Gomez named the “Milwaukee Tools Apprentice of the month.” for November 2018


Milwaukee tools partnered with PHCC GSA Training facility to name Rafael Gomez, of T P Thomas Plumbing the "Milwaukee tools student of the month" for December 2018.

This program was implemented to showcase talented students who continuously go above and beyond to further their education through the Training Facility. The choice to make him Apprentice of The Month was based on his work ethic, classroom performance, attendance and overall grade.

Rafael doesn’t come from a plumbing background but does have experience as a residential handyman. He chose the PHCC GSA Training facility because he wanted a more defined career goal and because it gives him the opportunity to be productive with his abilities. “I would recommend the training facility to anyone seeking a fulfilling and satisfying way of life.

Rafael says that If he wasn’t in the plumbing trade, he would still be in the handyman field. He coins himself as a jack of all trades.

Class is not without its challenges and Rafael’s biggest academic challenge so far has been fully understanding construction plans.  His only hands on challenge so far has been becoming familiar with MedGas procedures. With his dedication to the program and his hard work, those challenges will soon become a thing of the past.

He has all the support that he needs to continue his success and says that the best advice that he could give to future generations of students is to “Always give 100%”. That’s great advice coming from a great student. He has a bright future ahead of him and will go on to make phenomenal contributions to the plumbing industry.

 Congratulations Rafael, we wish you continued success.
