What You’ll Learn

This isn’t a training course; it is an assessment process which takes place wherever you are undertaking plumbing work. This process is undertaken in order for you to be assessed on your competence so that you can achieve an NVQ.


How You’ll Learn

Experienced Plumbers – No Qualifications:

Able Skills has developed a process to assist experienced workers currently working in the plumbing industry to achieve C&G 6035 and 6189 (NVQ). If you have worked as a Plumber for many years but have never achieved any qualifications, this route to achieve NVQ doesn’t require you to attend College or a Training Provider for months on end.

These qualifications are 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.
  • Performance Units: These units are achieved by producing evidence from the candidates work activities / workplace.

This Experienced Worker route will require you to:

  • Undertake study at home to prepare you for the online exams in centre
  • Undertake practical assessments in centre
  • To have work-based assessments completed

Experienced Plumbers – With Qualifications:

The existing Plumbing qualifications that you hold will likely map over to the NVQ and you will just need to be assessed in the work-place.

For level 2, the work based Plumbing assessments will be to establish your competence in being able to:

  • Maintain the Safe Working Environment when Undertaking Work Activities.
  • Maintain Effective Plumbing Working Relationships.
  • Contribute to the Improvement of the Plumbing Work Environment.
  • Install Non-complex Plumbing Systems and Components.
  • Decommission Non-complex Plumbing Systems.
  • Maintain Non-complex Plumbing Systems and Components.
