What You’ll Learn

This package will give you the opportunity to achieve a level 2 plumbing diploma followed by work based assessments to achieve the plumbing NVQ at level 2. The units from the level 2 Diploma will map directly to the NVQ which is why it is essential that the Diploma is achieved first.


How You'll Learn

Able Skills has developed this package of learning to assist experienced workers currently working in the plumbing industry to achieve: 

  • C&G 6035-02 Diploma
  • C&G 6189 NVQ.

C&G 6035 qualification is unit structured with:

  • Practical Units: These are achieved by a mix of knowledge and practical activities in simulated conditions within the centre.
  • Knowledge Units: These units are assessed by multi-choice tests / assignments – undertaken in the training centre.

You will be allocated 10 days in centre to achieve the above however, prior to attending the centre, we will provide you with a Home Study pack to support your learning for the knowledge units of this qualification.

C&G 6189 NVQ is work based assessment

Once the C&G 6035 level 2 Diploma is complete, we will then provide you with a profiling session with a Plumbing Assessor so that you fully understand what the requirements of the NVQ are. You will be provided with a portfolio and when you are ready, you then make contact with your Assessor to arrange your work based assessments.

Examples of the work that you will need to have access to:

Your Assessor will need to witness:

  • 1 bathroom (cold/hot)
  • Another bathroom (sanitation) or a heating job
  • Decommission 1 system

You will also separately need additional evidence (photos and portfolio completion) of:

  • 1 bathroom (cold/hot)
  • Another bathroom (sanitation) or a heating job
  • Decommission another system
  • 6 maintenance jobs

The length of time taken to achieve the NVQ aspect is entirely down to you and your access to the relevant aspects of work. Your registration for the NVQ level 2 is allocated at 3 years although you should look to complete it in a much shorter timescale


Courses Open To You After

As a qualified Plumber, you may consider that your next move would be to undertake gas training. Able Skills has a variety of gas training courses available, something to suit everyone. In addition, you could consider Water RegulationsEnergy Efficiency (Part L) or Vented & Unvented Hot Water Systems (G3). Training is available at Able Skills for any of the above listed courses.


Additional Info

To assist in achieving the C&G 6035 part of this programme, you will be provided with a Home Study pack and supporting materials so that you can study for the exams which will then be completed at Able Skills when you book your time in-centre. You will be allocated 10 days to achieve all of the practical tasks and the 9 on-line exams. Candidates will need to bring their own tools.

In order to achieve the NVQ aspect of this package (C&G 6189), you will need to have access to work (as detailed above) which you must source – we do not provide work placements.

Able Skills is open 7 days every week and we encourage visitors to our centre so please feel free to pop in and see what we do - No Appointment Required * No Sales * No Pressure.
