Nathan Morgan from Brisbane has been awarded the Tradelink Industry Mentor of the Year award at the 2018 Plumbing and Gas Industry Awards, held on Friday 20 July night at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane.

Having worked in construction for the past 20 years, Nathan is now the lead trainer at The Service Trades College Australia and is a skilled and dedicated team member who strives for excellence in all that he does.

Nathan is currently responsible for overseeing the training and assessment delivered to over 300 apprentices across four different trade qualifications in the Queensland Plumbing Services sector along with post trade courses delivered to several hundred tradespeople annually.
