We have three different routes for our students to take to achieve the initial Level 2 Plumbing qualification. Our different routes allow our students to have flexibility in their learning and to take the best route that fits in with their life. Here are all three main routes:

Full-time Level 2 Plumbing Course


This is the standard level 2 course that is run over six consecutive weeks. Training is from Monday – Friday for the whole six weeks where the plumbing students will carry out a variation of theory and practical based training, along with online exams and practical assessments. Once the course is complete some students will stay at Able Skills and complete the Gas Managed Learning Programme and some students will use their new skills to go out and start working. Also, some students may even book the level 3 course.

Weekend Level 2 Plumbing Course


This is the same as the standard course, however, this takes a little longer to complete. Our weekend option is extremely popular as it allows our students to continue working whilst they train at the same time. The level 2 plumbing course will run two weekends each month and involves theory and practical training with practical assessments and online exams.

Home Study Level 2 Plumbing Course


Our home study option is slightly different to the previous two. The home study means that our students will complete all theory work at home in their own time and when they feel ready they will book a week of practical training. Altogether four weeks of practical training is required and several online exams. This option is perfect for people that do not have the time to commit to a long training course and for those that learn better working alone.

All three routes have become very popular as Plumbers have become higher in demand. You can book our plumbing courses today for a 2017 start on 01322 280202.
