After the competition of the "best" in the SHK trade has already taken place twice at GET Nord, the best plumbers also chose their winners and thus German champions at the GET Nord trade fair in 2022. The German Championships are a component of the performance competition of the German skilled crafts, the Practical Performance Competition.
Every year, graduates of vocational training in the craft trades compete for the national victory in their trade. Many of them have to assert themselves against the competition at several competition levels: from the guild level to the chamber and state level to the national competition for the state winners. Afterwards, there is also the opportunity to take part in more advanced competitions such as Euroskills and Worldskills.
Since 1951, the competition has been under the patronage of the current Federal President.
The German Championship for Plant Mechanics SHK was held again in 2022 as part of GET Nord.
The task was to build a pre-wall installation with supply and disposal lines within a specified time frame and exactly according to plan.
