We are aware that there are many training centres in the UK offering various course options and we would advise caution when you are ready to book a Plumbing course.
Study all course descriptions to be sure that the Plumbing training you are being sold is industry recognised, is a full qualification and is in fact a plumbing qualification and not a heating and/or ventilation plumbing course or even Home study without you realising it!
Things to check before you book:
We recommend that you confirm the Training Centres City & Guilds Registration number and also that you enquire as to the qualifications of their staff.
In order for your Plumbing training to run swiftly and smoothly, you should ensure that your chosen training centre has qualified Instructors, Assessors and Internal Verifiers.
Better still, visit the centre and view the facilities available. You should be allowed access to see the training bays, chat to instructors and additionally, any existing students.
Lastly, confirm the timing of your course. If your intended course is to be achieved in blocks then be sure that you can return at a time of your choice and that you will not be left waiting for months on end.
Able Skills employs 7 Plumbing instructors/assessors – full details of their background can be viewed on our meet the staff page.
