Our course covers all you need to become a domestic plumbing and heating engineer and covers the syllabus of City & Guilds 6189-11 qualification as well as the BPEC Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations. Even with little or no prior knowledge, this course will allow you to absorb the knowledge and skills you need to succeed and will build speedily and steadily to the point where you are ready to pass your assessments.

The very best learning experience reflects a blended approach and combines book-based underpinning theory supported by multimedia interactive content and e-learning supported by PC based 3D simulations and intensive practical workshops. Our multiple certification programme will prepare you with all the essential skills required to either get a job or to be able to work legally on a self-employed basis. Many of our students are adult career changers and our courses are designed to allow study to sit alongside other work and family commitments. There is no better way to gain the trades skills the country needs and remember, this programme would allow a natural progression path into other related disciplines, such as renewable energy, gas engineering or, of course, to progress to the 6189 qualification at Level 3.
