Something on your mind?

If you still have a few questions please let us know but before you do, check the FAQ’s below in case the answer you’re looking for is mentioned below.

What is the duration of your courses?

This will depend on the training course or assessment that you enrol on. Some courses last just one day. The Plumbing Level 2 Course is a flexible course meaning you will never miss a class or exam. The theory is studied in your own home at your own pace with purpose built resources that we supply. You will need to attend the Centre to sit your online exams. The practical aspect is also done in the workshop in the Centre.  On average working adults complete this course in 9 – 12 months.


Do I need to bring my own tools when attending the course?

No, all tools, materials, and any other equipment will be supplied during your course, although you will need to wear old clothes and safety boots in the workshop.

Do I need previous qualifications to enrol on the courses?

This depends on the type of course you are enrolling onto. Our Level 2 Diploma doesn’t require for you to hold previous qualifications; however there is a pre-requisite for basic reading and arithmetic. Our course advisors will be able to give you the relevant information if required.

How many people do you have on your courses?

Most of our in-house courses run with a maximum of 10-12 candidates. This enables our trainers to dedicate more one to one time with each candidate’s individual needs.

Can I call into your centre to take a look around before enrolling on a course?

Of course, we recommend you visit us before enrolling on any course. Please call us to find out more and ask us any questions you may have.

What do the course fees cover, and are there any additional costs?

The course fees cover all training and assessment fees, registration, examination and certification costs, all materials and hand-outs needed to complete your course are also included. There are no hidden or additional costs to pay.

Do you accept payment by credit or debit card?

Can I spread the cost of my course?

What happens if I fail an examination?

Don’t worry, if you fail an examination, we can arrange a re-sit for you. We will only enter you for an examination when we feel you are competent and ready for it.

Do your courses lead to recognised qualifications?

Yes, we are approved by EAL and BPEC for the courses we run enabling us to award industry recognised qualifications.
