Overview

This Level 2 course is an ideal progression from the Level 1 Plumbing. This course offers all the plumbing skills from level 1 but goes into greater detail both in practical and theory. The theory includes a higher understanding in Hot and Cold water, central heating, sanitation and scientific principles. The practical side involves fabricating frames in LCS, copper and waste pipe, guttering, and installing sanitary ware. 

On completion of this course it will give you a 2 year exemption on a 4+ year apprenticeship.
