Plumbing Students Working in Workshop
  • Is this course for you?

    As a plumber no two days are ever the same, installing a central heating system one day then the next you may be fitting a bathroom suite. A qualified plumber can expect to earn between £24,000 to £40,000 per year depending on experience. The aim of this plumbing course is to develop the basic practical skills that are required to carry out basic plumbing tasks. The course consists of practical lessons delivered in “real work” situations and you will be trained to use the tools a professional plumber would use on site.

  • Required qualifications

    No qualifications are required to apply for the course, just a willingness to learn new skills.

  • What skills will I develop?

  • Careers

    You may want to further enhance your plumbing knowledge by applying for a level 1 or level 2 full-time plumbing daytime course.
