Is it possible to become a plumber while working?
Yes, it is - with part-time and intensive plumbing courses from Access Training. Our accredited training programmes allow you to learn around your current commitments, whether that means work, family, or other obligations.
Quitting your job and diving headlong into a totally new career is terrifying, and not necessarily a very smart move. If, for instance, you want to leave your desk job behind and become a professional plumber, you'll have to do quite a bit of training before you can actually start earning money. So if you hand in your notice before you've even enrolled on a training course, there'll be a significant gap in your income between the end of your old career and the start of your new one.
But what if, instead of quitting your job in order to train as a plumber, you could complete your training while still working your current job? Suddenly, figuring out how to be a plumber doesn't seem like such a daunting task or require so many sacrifices!
The 'traditional' route to becoming a qualified plumber is to undertake a college course or apprenticeship and learn over a number of years. Our courses take dramatically less time to complete, meaning that you can enrol in a course, learn your new trade, and get qualified before you take the plunge and tell your office that you're leaving for pastures new.
Benefits of learning while working
Here are a few reasons why it's usually better to train while continuing with your current job:
- No loss of income between quitting and starting your new career
- No need to let down your current commitments/obligations
- Get qualified faster (compared to standard college courses)
Live online learning - train anywhere!
Access Training now offer live online training sessions that allow you to build your plumbing knowledge from the comfort of your own home - or wherever else you happen to be. As long as you can connect to the Internet, you can join our virtual classroom and learn about your new trade.
Completing the theory component of your plumbing course online means that, when you attend our training centre in person, you can focus on developing your practical plumbing skills.
