If it has ever crossed your mind to learn a trade, there’s a good chance that plumbing is one of the trades that you will have considered. There are understandable reasons for that, including the famed job security of plumbing as a career, as well as the fact that you could enjoy earnings as high as £40,000 a year once you have become experienced in this field.
But let’s presume that as someone reading this, you’re at the other end of the experience spectrum, having not even undertaken a rudimentary plumbing task so far in your life.
Or perhaps you’re skilled in another trade such as tiling, plastering or joinery, and you like the idea of expanding your capabilities so that you can, for instance, change a tap or plumb in a kitchen sink, in the event of a customer of yours requesting this?
If either of the above situations describes you, you might have already been comparing plumbing courses, and considering which one might represent the best match to your requirements. Well, here at YTA, we present the opportunity for you to earn a full Level 1 qualification in order to get your plumbing career off to the best possible start – in as little as five days.
Could you really become a qualified plumber in just five days?
Yes, you read that correctly; you only need to be at our Yorkshire training centre for less than a week if you join our five-day intensive Level 1 plumbing course, which – if you are successful in satisfying the requirements – leads to the Level 1 Award in Preparation for Plumbing Operations.
This course will see you trained and assessed in two units – one that introduces you to construction work, and another focusing on carrying out plumbing operations. Over the five days, you will take on such tasks as the fitting of isolation valves and the bending of pipes on the first day, right through to a final day when you will be plumbing up a kitchen sink, completing a tap washer replacement, and finishing a small project, such as re-doing a bathroom in plastic pipe.
Or you would be very welcome to join us for the full 10 days
For an even more detailed introduction to what life is truly like as a plumber, you always have the option of enrolling on our 10-day intensive plumbing course at Level 1.
This programme effectively rolls together two five-day courses – the latter our five-day advanced plumbing course – and will allow you to develop your plumbing skills to an even greater extent. The second week of this course will enable you to complete the fitting of a domestic hot-water storage system, in addition to learning how to fit a full bathroom suite. You can also expect to be trained in relation to rainwater guttering, hoppers, and drainage.
The above rundown encompasses just some of the aspects of this exciting trade that our five-day and 10-day Level 1 plumbing courses here at YTA can educate you in, so that you benefit from the strongest possible platform for your future as a plumber.
