We get hundreds of enquiries every week from adults wondering if they can become a plumber at 40. If you are currently aged 40 or under, you will not receive your state pension until you are 67 or 68 years of age; this may mean that you have another 27 or 28 years of work until you get any support from the state.
Can you really see yourself working in the same type of job - for roughly the same amount of money - for the next 28 years? If the answer is no, then now is the right time to change your career and retrain as a skilled tradesperson.
So, if you have been dreaming about changing your career, and becoming a plumber is appealing to you, then as long as you are in good health, no age is too old to retain!
A plumber will take on a variety of different tasks from one day to the next. One day you may find yourself installing pipes in a customer’s house; the next day, you may be fitting a bathroom. The great thing about plumbing is that you never know what jobs you will be faced with.
Variety is not the only positive aspect of being a plumber. Many people who retrain as plumbers with Access Training go on to become self-employed - you could be your own boss! Also, with such a large skills gap in the UK, plumbers are in high demand. If you are highly motivated and put in the hours, you could be looking at earning £30k+ a year.
Here at Access Training, we have developed flexible training programs that are designed to accommodate any work or family commitments you currently have. If you cannot afford to leave your job to retrain, you can still train to become a plumber outside working hours. No matter what your circumstances or your experience level, we aim to deliver a truly comprehensive plumbing course that will get you qualified quickly.
