Here at Able Skills plumbing has always been one of our most popular trades if not the most popular - This is due to a few reasons including the ability to become self-employed. Now that you have successfully gained a Level 2 qualification the net logical step is to take on a National Vocational Qualification, however, this requires you to be in employment...In the meantime there are many different specialist courses that you can take here at Able Skills, here are just a few:

Students gain great practical experience whilst training here at Able Skills.

Think about gas?


A lot of our students return to us after completing our City & Guilds Plumbing Level 2 course not to gain further knowledge and experience n plumbing but rather to take on an entirely different trade; gas! That's right, the two trades actually go hand-in-hand using a lot of the same skills, tools, pipes and so on. Having the ability to provide both services when working out in the industry makes you more likely to find opportunities and ultimately make money! We know that this is a route that plumbers often take so we offer a Qualified Plumber Gas Training Package 2 - This course is specifically for those who hold plumbing qualifications and cuts 2-weeks out of the process, this is because the elements you would have learnt in those 2-weeks you will most likely already have mastered due to your plumbing know-how. - We have spaces available on this course starting in June this year!
