Whether you want to be able to take on plumbing jobs around the home with more confidence, or start up as a working plumber, YTA has a range of plumbing courses suitable for a range of abilities and skill sets. One of our most popular is the 10-day Level 1 plumbing course.
Our Level 1 plumbing course is suitable for total beginners or tradespeople from different fields who might wish to add plumbing to their armoury of skills. With this course under your belt – and possibly a Level 1 qualification, if you choose this option – you will be able to become a confident and skilled plumber, with a strong platform for career success.
After the full 10 days, you will have been trained and assessed in two units; ‘Introduction to construction work’ and ‘Carrying out plumbing operations’. Achieving these will enable you to earn the full Level 1 Award in Preparation for Plumbing Operations.
So, whatever the reason you might be looking for an intensive plumbing course in the UK, the 10-day Level 1 plumbing course here at YTA might be just the one for you. Here is what you can expect from this nationally recognised intensive plumbing course in the UK.
Week 1 – 5-day Level 1 intensive plumbing course
Monday – The first day of this course will entail you working with 15mm and 22mm copper pipe and fixings, in addition to fitting isolation valves and pipe bending.
Tuesday – Tuesday’s class will be about all things bathrooms, encompassing planning, installation, testing and the fixing of any leaks that might arise at the latter stage.
Wednesday – This day will include an explanation of internal cistern fittings and the various flush mechanisms you might encounter. You will also learn about fault finding and the diagnosis and fixing of those faults.
Thursday – This day will cover the installation, bleeding and fixing of radiators.
Friday – On the final day of week one of your intensive plumbing course in the UK, you will get to grips with plumbing up a kitchen sink and hot and cold pipework, as well as a tee off for a washing machine or dishwasher.
Week 2 – 5-day advanced plumbing course
The second week of the course is all about building on the knowledge you picked up in the first week. For example, you will have already learnt how to install a radiator, so now we’ll move on to domestic hot water storage systems and central heating cylinders.
Among many other skills, you will also cover the fitting of header tanks and gate valves, a thermostatic mixer shower, and a shower pump.
Extra tips and tricks
The 10-day course might be mainly made up of the content from our two five-day courses, but there are also some extra bits we have included. These include various tips and tricks of the plumbing trade, as well as full measuring and in-depth quoting based on full-size kitchens and bathrooms.
