ABOUT THE COURSE

This course offers the City and Guilds 7202 qualification, and will allow you to gain an introduction to plumbing, giving you the basic fundamental practical skills and knowledge required by someone aspiring to be a plumber. It covers all the essential basic skills and knowledge you'll need to start working as a plumber, or engineer specialising in heating or ventilation. The course consists of practical and theory assignments and training to give you a good foundation from which to begin work or continue studying.

Our teachers are currently planning for the safest ways to deliver this course from September. We have been delivering all of our courses online since the outbreak of Coronavirus in March 2020, and we are fully equipped to continue this for as long as is necessary. We hope to be able to deliver the course in a mixed format - blending online lessons with face-to-face teaching – as and when we feel that, on the basis of Government advice and our own risk assessments, it is safe to do so. The ratio of face-to-face teaching in our college buildings to online teaching will vary from course to course, so more specific information will be provided to you at enrolment.
