So you've decided that you would like to be a plumber, you've taken a quick look at the courses that we have to offer, and you've decided on the course that's most suited to you and the level of qualification you think you may require. But let us take a moment and explain to you in more detail what qualifications you need to fulfil your ambition and become a fully qualified plumber.

The minimum qualification that you need to become a plumber is the City & Guilds 6035 Level 2 Diploma in Domestic Plumbing. This qualification allows you carry out various domestic jobs, such as fixing taps, unclogging pipes, etc. If you complete our Essential Plumbing Course then you will gain this qualification. The City & Guilds 6035 is ideal if you are just entering the plumbing industry and would like to work alongside or become a domestic plumber.

If you would like to work on a large building site, or for a larger plumbing firm (e.g. British Gas or AA), you will first need to earn your NVQ Level 2. If you have no prior experience in the plumbing industry, don’t worry. Here at Access Training, we have developed two courses that are designed specifically for the absolute beginner - we'll train you up to become a fully qualified plumber in next to no time!

NVQ Level 2 Courses from Access Training
Tradespeople who carry out work on-site in the UK are required to hold an NVQ Level 2 Diploma for their chosen trade. However, the NVQ qualification is notoriously difficult to achieve; in order to pass, candidates must complete a portfolio of their work, complete with photographs, storyboards, and witness testimonials.
 
Completing a standard NVQ Level 2 course can take many months, making it quite a troublesome hurdle to overcome. Many budding tradesmen and women, particularly those with families and/or full-time jobs, simply don't have time to put in the necessary work. However, there is a way around this problem: fast track NVQ courses from Access Training Academies!
 
Our industry experience allows us to guide learners through the entire NVQ Level 2 process in a matter of weeks, not months. After a brief interview (which allows us to assess your current skill level and plan your NVQ course accordingly), we will help you to gather the requisite evidence, complete your portfolio, and gain that all-important diploma within the shortest possible timeframe.
 
Contact us now to learn more about our fast track NVQ Level 2 courses, or select one of the following options to learn more:
If you're not quite ready for the NVQ assessment just yet, don't worry - we offer a wide range of trade courses for learners of all levels. We even provide live online training, so you can begin mastering your trade from the comfort of your own home!
