AbleSkills are seriously engaged with providing skills training in the latest 'clean energy', offering courses that will give trainee plumbers and those plumbers on advanced courses a thorough grounding in current requirements and practical installations.

Major changes to regulations affecting plumbing are literally 'in the pipeline' as proposed revisions to two parts of the Building Regulations G :Hygiene, and L :Conservation of Fuel and Power, are currently the subject of consultation with the construction industry. Part G in particular, has major impact on plumbing/heating work in residential and non-residential properties.

Plumbers are very much on the front line of energy efficiency and conservation issues that are being now vigorously tackled on all fronts, by Government regulations, manufacture of new types of water and heating appliances to the new specifications, and the requirement to be fully capable of implementing the new installation and checking procedures to approved statutory standard.
