Plumbing, Gasfitting and Drainlaying

Today's plumbers are problem-solvers who keep up with the latest products and materials. You'll be taught by lecturers who know what they're talking about because they're specialists in their field and passionate about growing their industry.

Our programmes give you all the skills you need to become well-rounded, organised plumbers, gasfitters and drainlayers. You'll get practical experience in all aspects of plumbing in our modern facilities, all aspects of gasfitting in our interactive lab and drainlaying in our dedicated pit. Plus you'll get valuable contacts and keep on top of new products with regular visits from suppliers.
