plumbing coursesThe ever growing trade of Plumbing continues to excel as we see more and more people make the transition from previous roles. When keeping a close relationship with our students, naturally we find out interesting stories such as to why they have embarked on our various courses. Studying on our Level 2 Plumbing Course (just one of the many plumbing courses we offer) is former estate agent James Lloyd. Lets see why James changed careers and what he thinks of his time at Able Skills so far!

Not only did James spend 4 years as an estate agent, but he is also a previous window, kitchen and bathroom fitter. So far in his plumbing training, James told us that he thoroughly enjoys learning the trade thus far as its very hands on. Its easy to see his natural flare for the trade as his energy clearly shines when training. When asked why he left his previous jobs he stated that they didnt give him the stimulation he was after. He wanted to career where he can potentially work for himself, in a hands on role that also pays well.

Plumbing Courses such as the Level 2 course, really give students a real life depiction of what its like to work in the trade for real.  The course helps both students who havent had any experience working within plumbing as well as those who do hold some experience in the trade.

The course will provide you with a range of plumbing skills covering various topics including Electrical principles and processes, Common plumbing processes, Cold water systems, Domestic hot water systems, Sanitation, Central heating systems and Drainage systems.

When asked what James thinks of the teaching experience on his Level 2 Plumbing Course, James immediately responded with 'spot on'. He went on to explain how they tell you everything you need to know rather than what you don't. This re-enforces our motto of supplying you with relevant skills only for your trade ensuring you know what you need to know gain your qualification and carry out work in the real world.

plumbing coursesInitially, James heard of our Plumbing Courses via word of mouth as it was his friend who had previously been here before and gave him such a good review. It was soon after that James turned up on a sunday to have a look around the centre and see if it lived up to its name. After liking what he saw and referring to our establishment as a 'professional environment' he knew it was time to switch careers and make the transition to becoming a qualified plumber.
