Plumbing has long been a popular, rewarding and potentially lucrative career path for hands-on, practical people who enjoy working with their hands – but if you are such a person and don’t yet have any actual plumbing experience, what’s the best starting point?
Turning to one of the UK’s most trusted plumbing training centres is one good piece of advice – as is, in particular, considering our 10-Day Level 1 Intensive Plumbing Course.
Why might this be the right intensive course for you?
This 10-day plumbing course effectively consists of our five-day Level 1 Intensive Plumbing Course in the first week, and our five-day Advanced Plumbing Course during the second week, meaning that you really can become a confident plumber in just two weeks.
You might join this course as someone with no related experience at all, or you may be an existing tradesperson such as a tiler, plasterer, joiner or kitchen fitter, with an interest in boosting your skills to include plumbing tasks like plumbing in a kitchen sink or changing taps.
Whatever your priorities in terms of what you wish to do after completing this course, our 10-Day Level 1 Intensive Plumbing Course could represent the perfect lifting-off point for you, enabling you to confidently take on plumbing jobs around the home or begin in business as a professional plumber.
Remember that the more comprehensive a job you can do for a customer, the likelier you may well be to win such work in the first place, as they won’t need to place their trust in anyone else to provide them with a wealth of services. So, you might be very thankful for your decision to take on the full 10-day course!
What will you be trained and assessed in?
There are two units that you will be trained and assessed in when you embark on this course; an introduction to construction work and carrying out plumbing operations. Achieving both of these units will entitle you to a full qualification, the Level 1 Award in Preparation for Plumbing Operations.
With this qualification being accredited by the Ofqual and Quality Assurance Agency-recognised Ascentis Awarding Organisation, you can have confidence that the course will provide you with a strong foundation for a subsequent life and career as a plumber.
This is assured further by the considerable territory that the course covers, including such tasks as working with copper pipe and fixings, the planning and installation of a bathroom, the installation of a domestic hot water system, the fitting of a shower pump and thermostatic mixer shower, and so much more.
