Kind plumber receives £80k in public donations:


You may have seen this story in the week...A self-employed plumber received praise online after generously refusing to charge an elderly disabled woman to fix her boiler. Apparently he has been doing free work for the elderly for quite some time out of his own pocket. This humble and kind and began to become viral online!

Now! The plumber, 52 from Burnley has been given a huge amount of respect in the form of donations so that he can carry on with his cause. People on social media have even offered the man holidays abroad! Requests for him to do work in America, France and Australia are flying in along with fellow plumbers contacting him to get advice and guidance as to how to do it in their countries!

Looking for plumbing training?


Here at Able Skills, we play host to the start of peoples careers. Plumbing is a great trade to become involved with - the opportunity is very fruitful, being in demand constantly and the prospect of becoming self-employed is very attractive...

We have the courses, instructors and equipment to help you prepare for a career in the trade. If you are looking for a starting point, without previous experience then we recommend that you first take on our Introduction to Plumbing course - this course will lay the foundation for you to build upon. The 5-day course is short, but intensive and is ideal for gaining basic introductory plumbing skills with a City and Guilds certificate at the end.

Upon completion of the Introduction to Plumbing course if you are happy and you think that the trade is for you, then the next step would be to take on a City & Guilds Level 2 Plumbing Course. This is where you will really begin to learn the essential knowledge and practical ability of the trade. We will teach you a variety of subjects so that you are up to scratch with the national standard of plumbers! If you are looking to complete this course then you have a few options:



A full-time basis means that you will take the course during weekdays from Monday - Friday. The course is a total of 7-weeks and will help you to take the first serious steps towards becoming a professional in the trade - after successful completion, you will receive a C&G 6035 level 2 Plumbing qualification.



Yes, that is right we offer plumbing courses on a part-time basis which means that you will be able to study the course over a series of weekends. (on a 2 weekend on and 2 weekends off basis) We have devised this weekend option for those candidates who have an existing job that they are looking to train around and any other prior arrangements and so on.



Home-study? read that correctly, here at Able Skills we offer a home-study option for some select courses, including plumbing courses which allows you to take home a study pack provided by us and learn the theory half of the course in your own time (We recommend taking about 3-6 months). Then you will book in 4-weeks of practical learning and assessments - contact us for more information about this option.
