Learning Plumbing Skills Through Courses

There are a wide variety of plumbing courses available to those either looking to enter the industry or update their skills.

The most reputable training centres will provide a diverse selection of plumbing courses ranging from intensive courses that teach basic plumbing skills to accredited qualifications courses recognised by industry bodies such as City & Guilds.

Plumbing training can range in duration from a basic five day short course to an eight week programme of intensive learning that will improve confidence, competence and should ultimately deliver a qualification.

Trainees should be aware that the nationally recognised starting point qualification into the industry is the City & Guilds 6189, which provides the understanding about all modern domestic appliances for anyone looking to commence a career.

This qualification costs in the region of four thousand pounds so taking this course should not be entered into lightly because it is a considerable investment and should only be taken by those who are serious about plumbing.

Some training centres can provide a flexible payment system where a trainee can split the cost of their course over the weeks that they train, therefore, avoiding the pain of handing over a lump sum.

It is advisable to research all the background information on any potential training centre that you may plan to take a course with in order to check whether they are financially stable in order to protect your investment.

Visiting a centre in person without an appointment is also worthwhile because this will enable a member of staff to show you around the premises and direct you to the plumbing centres, where you can meet their instructors.

Once you are at a centre's premises you can ask the necessary questions about future prospects, what the different plumbing courses involve and what you will be able to achieve by completing a structure of learning.

If you already have plumbing expertise, then you might want to expand your skill set by learning aspects of gas training and renewable technology which will increase your employability.

Instructors will be able to monitor your progress during your learning and give you professional advice on what other trades courses which are associated with plumbing that might be beneficial to enrol on.

Training centres that provide plumbing qualifications often offer a whole range of courses related to other aspects of construction such as bricklaying, carpentry, tiling, plastering and painting and decorating.

Able Skills have opened an Energy Saving Training Centre to provide approved training on the installation of energy efficient forms of heating and lighting.
