We don’t recommend this type of course, as we believe learning has to be re-enforced over a period of time, especially the practical work. Some intensive plumbing courses claim to train plumbers in a matter of weeks or months, when in reality it takes years of learning to become a skilled plumber. Other short courses offer certificates which are not recognised by the industry. A couple of days in a workshop does not provide you with sufficient experience to work on plumbing systems. We advise training with a recognised training provider (e.g. a college) on an accredited course (e.g. NVQ Level 2).
