It’s the phrase that has been uttered by people disgruntled with their careers seemingly since time immemorial; “I should’ve just become a plumber”. Well, given that we officially have a recession on our hands, is now the time to make good on that vague declaration of frustration with your lot, by actually training to be a plumber?
Of course, here at YTA, we would only wish to encourage the most responsible career choices. Indeed, while the National Careers Service advises that experienced plumbers can command salaries of as much as £40,000 a year, you also need to be sure it is the right long-term path for you.
Nonetheless, if you do come to the conclusion that becoming a plumber should be your next big professional step, our training centre can help you to get off to a great start with it, when you take on one of our five-day or 10-day plumbing courses.
Make us your destination for Level 1 plumbing training
As we mentioned in the title of this blog post, you only need to join us at our Bradford premises for a week or two to be able to put yourself in a highly advantageous position to start your plumbing career.
Our five-day intensive Level 1 plumbing course, for instance, culminates in the successful student being granted the nationally recognised Level 1 Award in Preparation for Plumbing Operations, accredited by Ascentis Awarding Organisation.
People leaving this very hands-on, practical course have gone on to use their newly acquired knowledge and confidence to take on plumbing jobs around the home and even start up as professional plumbers.
But you might be just as interested to learn that you don’t need to possess any prior experience in plumbing to take on this course – it really is excellently suited to total beginners, as well as those working in other trades, such as tiling or plastering, who wish to expand their skills base.
Or get even more when you join us for five days more
OK, so you now know that you can earn a Level 1 plumbing qualification if you sign up for our five-day Level 1 course. But you might not have known that we also run a five-day advanced plumbing course that represents a natural continuation of the five-day Level 1 course for further developing your burgeoning plumbing skills.
Alternatively, you might fancy effectively taking on both of these courses at once, by enrolling on our 10-Day Level 1 Intensive Plumbing Course.
Again, this 10-day course includes the chance to earn the aforementioned Level 1 qualification if you desire this. However, it’ll also allow you to become an even more confident and capable plumber when it comes to such tasks as installing domestic hot water storage systems, fitting radiators including thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs), central heating fault finding, and so much more.
Simply click through to the relevant pages for these courses on the YTA website to learn more about what each of them entails, and so that you can determine the training route that is likely to represent the best choice for you.
Then, don’t hesitate to get in touch directly with us to discuss your needs in greater detail and book your place on the most suitable course.
