Stable Plumbing CoursesNot everyone will always be happy in the career they have fallen in and will always dream of starting a new career in something they have a passion for and something they will enjoy. However, career stability is just as important, which is why plumbing is such a fantastic career option. It offers a great stable career and is a very enjoyable career to be a part of.

Plumbers are one of very few career paths that will always be needed in the world. Plumbing is in every home, every building and every shop, meaning Plumbers will always be needed across the world. Therefore, becoming a Plumber can offer great job stability due to the high level of work available.

As there is a current shortage of Plumbers in the UK right now, it means that Plumbers are in high demand and it offers a fantastic opportunity to start a new career with great career prospects.

Here at Able Skills, we see lots of students coming to our plumbing courses from all different career paths. They all come with the same goal of becoming a Plumber and starting a new career. Whether they look to go on and become self-employed, work for a company or even go and work on-site, we have the courses available for them.


The perfect starting point is the City & Guilds Level 2 Plumbing Course, this course gets you from a beginner to a Plumber and we offer a variation of options for this course. The most popular option is the 6-week full time course and then we have the weekend option and the home study option.

However, most our students won’t stop there with a lot going onto the NVQ or the Gas and some will even do both. Without doubt the gas training is the most popular option after the plumbing course with many going straight onto the gas after completion of their plumbing. Our Qualified Plumber Gas Course is perfectly suited for our plumbing students that are making the step from plumbing into gas. We also offer gas training for New Entrants that want to go straight into gas.

We understand that starting a new career can be a daunting prospect, especially after years doing the same job day in day out. Therefore, we have a whole team of fantastic plumbing tutors that make sure you get all the training and information you need to get started and feeling confident in your new stable career.

If you are looking for something new and stable career, then plumbing is just for you. Give us a call on 01322 280 202 for more information on how to get started.
