The Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre (PICAC) is a unique industry led training facility located in Brunswick and Geelong, Victoria, Australia. 

PICAC was formed in 2009 at the height of the millennium drought in Australia. The first PICAC training facility opened in Brunswick, Victoria in April 2009, with the primary purpose to provide courses in Green Plumbing, to address the skills shortage in sustainable plumbing within the industry at the time.
