COMAP is supporting the 44th WorldSkills competition in France, as a partner of the plumbing and heating part of the competition. Technical experts from the group recently took part in a preparatory seminar organised in Paris for the 700 regional winners, who in March 2017 will go head-to-head at the Parc des Expositions in Bordeaux for the national finals.
As a partner, COMAP is supplying its wide range of COMAP heating valves, its XPress press-fit system for carbon steel pipes, as well as its underfloor heating range, both for regional rounds of the competition, and for the National Finals. COMAP experts are also taking part in preparatory sessions for the young installers, for example running a training session on press-fitting during the preparatory seminar at the beginning of November in Paris.
Over 7,000 under-23s took part in the regional rounds for the French WorldSkills competition in 2016. The French Skills team will be selected during the national round of the competition in March 2017. It will represent France at the international WorldSkills Competition in October 2017 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
