NVQ Level 2 Plumbing Requirements

In order to earn your NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing and Heating, you will need to provide…

Factual accounts
Witness testimonies
Photographs of the work you have carried out
Please note that this NVQ programme is ASSESSMENT ONLY and does not include any training. If you are looking to learn plumbing from the ground up, please visit our main Plumbing Courses page.

Who is this qualification for?

The NVQ Level 2 in Plumbing & Heating is intended for experienced plumbers who already have a good working knowledge of the relevant plumbing techniques and theory.

We provide NVQ packages for:
Learners who already hold the Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing & Heating
Experienced workers who do not hold the Level 2 Diploma

What qualification will I receive?

Once your portfolio has been submitted and assessed, you will (if successful) be awarded:
NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing and Heating
NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing and Heating
You will be able to apply for a trade recognition card, identifying you as a qualified professional plumber.


The structure of our Plumbing NVQ Level 2 assessment programme depends on whether or not you hold the Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing & Heating (see Who should apply above).

If you do not hold the Level 2 Diploma, you will follow this structure:
Interview: You will attend a brief interview, giving us a chance to grasp your current experience level and decide on the best way to proceed.
Induction: An introduction to compiling your portfolio. This can be carried out online if necessary.
Completing Assessments: Next, you will need to complete all necessary theory and practical assessments in our training centre. This takes around 2-3 weeks; again, please note that this process does NOT involve any training (assessment only).
Progress Meetings: These will take place periodically once you are on site and working on your portfolio. You will meet with your assessor, who will assess the evidence that you have gathered to date.
Submission: Once your portfolio is complete, you will submit it for final assessment.
Award: If successful, you will be awarded your NVQ Plumbing Level 2 qualification.
In either case, an assessor will be required to carry out direct observation in your place of work. Access Training Academies will send an assessor out to your workplace on multiple occasions.
