  • No way would i recomend the plumbing and constrution college.
    It is all a big con, yes they do have 100% pass rate but how is that possible . I have no experince at all and in my time at the college i passed all my exams without actualy doing the work on my own-
    you dont get to leant any new skills, only how to pass exams . The teacher is rude and can turn VERY nasty
    please shop around and find a better college than the plumbing and construction college
    not a chnace would i recomend the plumbing and construction college.
    During my course there were 6 of us, not one was even slightly happy with the course . As the city and guilds award is 100& certain most people are happy to get out of there with the pass rate. if your like me and want to learn how to be a plumber dont bother with this course
    Also the teacher and course director is racist in lesson times and can be very rude

What could be improved: that the teacher didnt even try to help when i asked for more training. That he wasnt the same teacher that spoke to me before i paid the 1500 deposit.
Would you recommend this course?: Yes

Course programme

The Plumbing and construction college run the City & Guilds 6129 over a 8 week period. This course is ideal for those wishing to enter the plumbing industry and for those with only basic practical experience. Many students advance from the City & Guilds 6129 Level 2 onto their NVQ Level 2 in Plumbing (qualifying them as plumbers).

Spreading the course over 8 weeks allows our trainers to fully train you in all the areas within the syllabus, as well as area that are not (such as quoting, marketing, accountancy etc).

If you have little to no practical experience, you may find it useful to first take our weekend introduction to plumbing course. 50% of the weekend course fee would be refunded if you decide to then continue to this course.

This course may be taken in weekly blocks if this is more convenient for no extra charge, meaning you can work your training into your holiday entitlement.

This course takes in a wide variety of practical and theory, ranging from air cupboards to bathroom suites, to drainage and lead work. Full details on the course contents are shown under practical and theory tabs below.
