Plumbing Courses at Able Skills


Providing the latest systems & equipment means that our students are familiar with the latest systems & equipment that they could come across working in the industry once they've left the centre. Our instructors are extremely knowledgable on the subject and have years and years of experience both teaching and working out in the industry! We encourage students to take advantage of our tutor's excellent knowledge and ask as many questions as they want and seek guidance if they are struggling with something - don't ever be embarrassed to ask anything, that's what they are here for! We also like to make sure that we have consistent staff, meaning you will be taught by the same instructor all the way through we do not swap and change as it can cause problems in progression, this way the tutor will get to know you individually.

Where to start?


Well, the best way to start is to think about your current level of ability in plumbing, do you know the basics? if the answer is no - then you may want to consider starting with an introductory course so that you understand the fundamentals and can get a feel of the trade, to see if you enjoy it and it's right for you! The Introduction to Plumbing course is 5-days in total and will give you a basic understanding of the trade as a whole.

If the answer to the question is yes, and you do have some previous knowledge or experience in the subject then consider a full-time plumbing course that will result in a qualification! Our City & Guilds Level 2 Plumbing Course is a great place to start and will teach you many different aspects of the trade over a series of 6-weeks!

Don't have time to study?


Weekend courses:


Do you have an existing job? Can't get away from prior engagements? But, you are still eager to get the training and become a professional plumber in the long-term - we have a couple of alternative courses for you! These include the option of weekend study, this means that instead of coming in 5-days a week you can study a plumbing course on a 2-day a week basis, this will mean that it takes considerably longer to gain your desired qualification but may be the only option for some people.

Home-Study courses:


Home-study plumbing courses are another great option for those with limited time on their hands, the ability to learn the theory at home and come into our centre to complete tasks, assessments and so on can be really beneficial for some people. There is no difference in the result you will gain the same value qualification, you will just be studying from home, convenient and great as long as you put the work in!
