The future of Plumbing courses at our centre!


Here at Able Skills, we are constantly working hard on making sure that we are providing a safe, social distanced experience for our students that allows them to continue with the quality training that we provide whilst maintaining a safe process. When looking to begin on the path to a new career you want to be sure that you are studying with a centre that is reputable and experienced. We have been providing training for over 18+ years and provide industry-recognised City & Guilds qualifications. The future of plumbing courses at our centre is that they will continue to produce excellent and capable entrants to the industry, however, the process may be different and may be achieved through alternative training methods such as home-study or virtual training methods.

Plumbing courses at Able Skills.


Of course, when it comes to learning the practical skills that go into being a capable professional, you will need to be at our centre learning hands-on. However, the theory side of our qualifications may be taken and learnt outside of our centre in the future as appose to learning in a classroom. Due to the worldwide pandemic, we are implementing measures to ensure a safe learning environment and that means lowering the number of students at the centre at any given time. To do this we are promoting the use of alternative training methods.


For example, our Home Study Level 2 Plumbing Course option is a great way to get learning in your own time and space. This course works by giving you the materials needed to learn the theory surrounding the trade of plumbing, our 'Home-Study Pack' will include everything you need and can be sent to you straight away! So usually this course would be 6-weeks in total all here at our centre but by learning the theory side at home the course is reduced to just 4-weeks of at centre training and assessments helping us maintain a controlled and safe environment as well as giving you the opportunity to learn and work at the same time or even just to study from the comfort of your own home.


Again, another option is our upcoming virtual training that will be available for Plumbing courses, Electrician courses and Gas courses. Virtual training will allow you to gain theory aspects of the trade at home and then learn the practical side at a later date giving us the ability to help students gain those all-important qualifications safely. If you're already a busy person but want to look into making a change of career then learning online can be a great option. We want to be helping as many people as possible gain the training they deserve and this can only be done by maintaining an environment that is safe and helpful for all of us.

We will be releasing more information in the coming days on exactly how these online/virtual training options will work and keep you updated on when you can get started! Following the government's advice is critical to protecting the NHS and saving lives.
