Level 1 Diploma in Plumbing

For those who want to enter the plumbing industry. The course enables you to focus on maths and English, while building skills, knowledge and confidence to take you forward into the Level 2 course. You may have the opportunity to complete some Level 2 units in preparation for the Level 2 course.

Units include:

  • safe working practices
  • how to communicate with others
  • applying environmental protection measures.

Manufacturers and industry specialists will showcase the latest developments in plumbing and environmental technology, you will go on industry visits and have the chance to work on live projects. You will also complete 30 hours of work experience within the industry.

You will need four GCSEs grade 3 or above, including maths and English and preferably a science.

This course is a one-year course. You will be required to attend two full days for 34 weeks, plus two block weeks for practical assessment to be arranged with your tutor. Maximum attendance is required to ensure success.

You will learn in our well-equipped workshops, backed up by classroom sessions, which will help to underpin your knowledge of the subject. Following the completion of each unit you will take an on-line examination.
