Professional Plumber Course: Overview

This plumber course represents perhaps the most extensive form of training a beginner can receive to become a professional plumber, going further than that of a standard plumbing course. The professional plumber course contains all the qualifications you will need, working from the beginning learning about how to fit copper and plastic pipework to registering for your NVQ level 2. With that you’ll be able to gain your PHMES card and seek lucrative employment with plumbing contractors, Housing Associations and Local Authorities.

After completing this plumber course and achieving your NVQ, you will be a fully-qualified plumber, allowing you to find work with a plumbing firm or even make the steps to start your own business. While it is a quick and effective way of gaining your plumbing qualifications, the course can also be split up and studied at a schedule more suited to your needs and working arrangements. If you would like to find out more about how this works, get in contact with us and we’ll be happy to tell you more.
