The Level 2 NVQ

Gained industry experience? Well now it's time to get your Level 2 NVQ! If you know anyone who already works in the industry, then ask them just how much weight having an NVQ holds. As the demand for construction has increased, naturally firms are looking for those with superior skill sets and the NVQ gives you exactly that. It's not something everyone has, but it's certainly something everyone is working towards to earn the bigger bucks.

Around The World With City & Guilds

A lot of people know that our Plumbing Courses are City & Guilds accredited, but not many know that having such qualification under your belt means you can travel around the world and work as a Plumber at the same time. Heard about people working in Australia? Well that's how they did it. They enrolled onto a world recognised accredited course and from there the world became their oyster.

Gas Training Courses
