Plumbing DIY Training Courses

Electrician Domestic Installer

The plumbing DIY level course is an introductory plumbing course that is designed for people who want to learn basic plumbing skills. The course will teach the basics of plumbing systems, copper tubing and plumbing pipework.

It is best to undertake the course onsite in order to benefit directly from hands on, safe and practical applications, particularly for those who intend to use their plumbing skills to work on real domestic plumbing projects.

The plumbing DIY level course is a carefully planned, industry wide and recognised programme that will increase your knowledge of domestic plumbing and pave the way to higher plumbing qualifications. Some providers offer a City and Guilds accredited course (C&G 4555-02) and will issue a C&G certificate on successful completion of the programme.

Who is the plumbing diy level course aimed at?

The plumbing DIY level course is for people who have none or very little knowledge and experience of domestic plumbing. It is an excellent choice for anyone interested in a career as a plumber. It is also ideal for DIY’ers with basic plumbing skills who desire more insight and training into domestic plumbing to enable them to either work safely on their own plumbing at home or to simply assess the work involved before hiring a plumbing professional.
