It’s hardly surprising that so many people are drawn to the idea of becoming a plumber, especially at times of economic uncertainty like the present. But if you’re seeking the right intensive plumbing course in the UK, you may understandably become a little confused by the various options offered by training providers like YTA.
So, let’s look specifically at our five-day and 10-day courses that will give you a Level 1 plumbing qualification, the Level 1 Award in Plumbing Operations. How do they differ?
A strong platform for a rewarding plumbing career
The short answer to the above question is that the 10-day course effectively constitutes an extended version of the five-day course. That means both courses will train and assess you on two units – ‘Introduction to plumbing work’ and ‘Carrying out plumbing operations’ – and both enable you to earn a qualification accredited by Ascentis Awarding Organisation.
No less importantly, both of these courses provide a sturdy foundation for future professional success as a plumber. You don’t need any previous experience to take on either route, and once you’ve completed your chosen intensive plumbing course in the UK, you should possess the confidence and skills needed to develop a plumbing career.
Build your capabilities as a plumber at our trusted training centre
The five-day course – which is, of course, the same as the first five days of the 10-day course – will see you taking on such tasks as working with and using copper pipe and fixings, planning and installing a bathroom, fault finding, installing a small two-radiator system, and plumbing up a kitchen sink.
And that’s just a quick summary of some of the interesting plumbing challenges that will await you over the five days, as the instructor also explains how to tackle various problems with real-life solutions. You’ll also find out about pricing jobs and business start-up.
Stay with us for a second week on our 10-day course, though, and you’ll get to expand on what you learned during the first week. You will be given the opportunity, for example, to complete the fitting of a domestic hot water storage system, and will also learn more about bathroom plumbing, rainwater guttering, hoppers and drainage.
You can discover more about just how much an intensive plumbing course in the UK can cover by perusing our various online course pages. Remember that regardless of which course you enrol on, you’ll also become well-versed in plumbing ‘tricks of the trade’, as well as in full measuring and in-depth quoting based on full-size kitchens and bathrooms.
