Looking to get a grasp of the basics? Our Introduction to Plumbing Course - This course will give you the very basics of the trade, you will learn the fundamentals over a period of 5-days. This course will also provide an opportunity to identify if you enjoy the trade and whether or not you could see yourself carrying out these tasks on a daily basis. Getting a taste of plumbing through this course avoids the problem of being stuck in a long-term training program that you end up not perusing. This introductory course has been recognised as an excellent stepping stone for students and as such you will receive a City & Guilds certificate upon completion!



If you are ready to begin on the path towards a new career then you will struggle to find a better course than our City & Guilds Level 2 Plumbing Course - This course is a complete guide to plumbing and will include all of the theory and practical skills and knowledge to make a fantastic start in the industry. You will take on a variety of tasks towards the end of this 6-week course and will achieve the level 2 qualification by way of undertaking both practical assignments and on-line exams here at Able Skills. We will provide you with everything you need to achieve this qualification including a level 2 Plumbing reference book


Home-Study Option:


Due to the current uncertainty at this moment in time, we want to bring attention to our 'Home-Study' options for our plumbing courses. We aim to be as flexible as possible when it comes to training at our centre. Our Home Study Level 2 Plumbing Course option is a great way to get learning in your own time and space. The course will start at home, we will send you a 'Home-Study Pack' which will include everything you need to learn the theory side of the trade on your own. You should take at least 3 - 6 months to fully absorb everything that we have provided you with.


When you feel confident that you understand the theory, you will spend 4-weeks of at centre practical learning and completion of assessments. Those 4-weeks will be chosen by you and should all be separate. Once you have completed your plumbing home study learning pack and you are ready to tackle the exams and the practical tasks, you can call and book your training slots with us. These weeks will be where you gain the actual hand-on practical skills that will ultimately make you a plumber. You will also complete assessments here at Able Skills in order to achieve this Level 2 qualification.
