Working as a plumber, but need qualifications?


Experienced plumber looking for qualifications? If you have been working as a Plumber for a minimum of 3 years but have never achieved a Plumbing qualification, then this fast-track 6035 assessment process may be just what you need! Here at Able Skills, we know that people get into the trade without formal qualifications and may want to pick them up later in life...So we have devised a quick route to help professionals get through the assessment process - City & Guilds Level 2 Plumbing Course for Experienced Plumbers!

This course is NOT a learning programme, you will not be taught anything during the length of the course. It is an assessment process to establish your knowledge as a Plumber and to show that you can meet the competency requirements of this level 2 Plumbing Diploma! You will need to show evidence of your time served as a plumber on a variety of different jobs, which should be simple for a plumber who has worked for a minimum of 3-years in the trade; this can be by way of employer references, pictures and witness testimonies etc.
