It would be easy to imagine that a mere five days could never be enough time to move from zero experience or expertise in plumbing, to a position of confidence in undertaking such key plumbing tasks as changing taps, plumbing in kitchen sinks and even full bathroom replacements.
This, though, is perfectly possible when you take on YTA’s Level 1 intensive plumbing course in the UK – and not only that, but completing this route will also give you a nationally recognised qualification.
The course in question consists of two units; introduction to construction work, and carrying out plumbing operations. Achieve both units, and you will be able to attain the full qualification ‘Level 1 Award in Preparation for Plumbing Operations’, courtesy of Ascentis Awarding Organisation. This, in turn, will provide an invaluable platform for further training with YTA.
A hands-on introduction that will significantly boost your confidence
Some of those who enrol on our Level 1 intensive plumbing course in the UK are true novices with no prior background in plumbing or any other trade, while others are existing tradespersons – such as plasterers, tilers, joiners or kitchen fitters – who are interested in adding plumbing skills to their armoury. Thankfully, this acclaimed five-day course is excellently designed for all of these groups.
It all begins on the Monday, when students will get to grips with 15mm and 22mm copper pipe and fixings, as well as fitting isolation valves and pipe bending. Various fittings and tools will be used on this first day to produce pipework.
Tuesday, meanwhile, focuses on planning and installing a bathroom – encompassing such elements as the bath, taps, toilet, basin and all wastes. This day includes testing the installed bathroom up to mains working pressure, so that if any leaks are detected, they can be fixed.
All of this will be followed by a Wednesday that will look at toilets, including a full strip-down and explanation of internal cistern fittings and various types of flush mechanisms.
Come Thursday, you can expect to be installing a small two-radiator system – or three radiators, if your skills and the timeframe allow for this. Then, on Friday, you will be tasked with plumbing up a kitchen sink and hot and cold pipework. It is on this final day of the course that you will also be taking on your first job – the addition of a garden tap to your completed kitchen pipework.
You’ll struggle to find a finer intensive plumbing course in the UK
With this course having been designed to arm those enrolling with all of the knowhow and confidence they will require to start plumbing jobs straight after qualifying, when it comes to five-day plumbing courses, you can’t expect to find a more comprehensive option than this one.
And of course, extra content is also provided that features on every other YTA plumbing course, including ‘tricks of the trade’ and full measuring and in-depth quoting based on your full-size kitchens and bathrooms.
So, we would humbly suggest that you don’t hesitate to snap up your place on this highly respected and far-reaching course!
