Steven Walker – who completed a plumbing course with access training told us that he “had no previous experience of plumbing before” and that he found the course particularly helpful because “the course simulates real life situations” he also went on to say that “being a self-employed plumber is the best job he has ever had”

Students, who attend the courses provided by access training, come from all walks of life. Some or our students, like Anthony Blundell did not have any professional experience when he enrolled on one of our carpentry courses. We asked Anthony about his time spent with Access Training, Anthony replied by saying “I enjoyed the course because it was delivered at the right level” he also mentioned that he hasn't stopped working since he has finished his training course, and that he hasn't had to do any advertising because all of his opportunities are made by recommendation.

Scott Daily also didn't have any professional experience when he enrolled on one of our Electrician courses. After becoming a fully trained electrician he informed us that “[this] course has led to me becoming self-employed as an electrician.” He also added that with his new qualifications he was able to expand his families building and roofing business.

Before Alex Dyer enrolled with us on a gas engineering course, he was already working as a self- employed builder he later told us, “The qualifications I received have opened up new avenues if work for me”.

Learning how to fit a bathroom is a vitally useful skill in the trade industry, and is equally as useful to people of a non-professional background. While sourcing the materials is easy, it takes knowledge and skill to achieve a desirable finish, regardless of experience in similar fields and examples from online tutorials.

At Access Training, we provide a comprehensive Bathroom Fitting Course and a combined Bathroom and Kitchen Fitting Course, which both take your through the many aspects of work involved in completing a successful bathroom renovation. From producing pipework, to installing toilets, baths and basins, we will guide you through the process of a achieving your new portfolio of skills, allowing you to achieve a City and Guilds certificate in recognition of your achievement. This will allow you to complete bathroom fitting work unsupervised, and will also allow you to progress onto more advanced units if desired. 

Here are some of the people who may benefit from learning how to fit a bathroom:

Property Developers 
If you're just embarking on a future career in property development, or are looking to keep the costs of labour down in current projects, it could be immensely useful for you to learn how to install bathroom fittings without the need for additional help. 
While you may possess some previous skills in home improvement, you may not have the knowledge or practical experience required to fit a new bathroom successfully, and this lack of experience could result in a less-than-perfect finish. Completing our course will allow you to fit bathrooms that you can be proud of, adding to the value of the property and lending an air of professionalism to the job.

Home Owners 
If you're looking to improve your own home without the need to hire labourers to complete the job, then it could be equally as useful for you to familiarize yourself with this trade. If you choose the combined course, you will not only learn how to fit a bathroom, but will also gain kitchen installation skills; both of which will prove to be incredibly useful in carrying out home improvement projects for years to come.

Job Seekers 
Home improvement tradespeople are always in high demand, to undertake work with larger companies as well as independently. If you're looking to kick-start a brand new career that will allow you to work flexibly and according to your own contractual preferences, then this could be a great place to start, giving you the opportunity to start earning straight away, or progress onto more advanced courses.

It is now required for any electrical installation work in a domestic environment must make sure that the work is designed and installed in a manner in which in protects people from electric shocks and electrical fires.

All electrical installations, whether it be, at home, in a conservatory, outbuilding or even the garden must now adhere to the part p building regulations.

Apart from some types of minor electrical installation jobs, such as some installations in kitchens and outdoors, all electrical work must be reported to the local authority or carried out by an electrician who holds the Part P qualification.

Here at Access Training, we have developed an accredited, Electrical Part P (Full Scope) training course.  Our Part P course has been designed so it is easily understood by people who have little to no experience in domestic electrical work.

Part P is on the “benchmark” qualifications without which you will be unable to become a qualified electrician. The skills and knowledge taught over our Electrical Part P – Full Scope qualification are transferable to all trades,  including; Electricians, Plumbing, Heating engineers, Builders, Property developers, Kitchen fitters, and even landscape gardeners.
