The Plumbing Professional Course
It's no wonder that the country is in such dire need of qualified plumbers. For decades the traditional apprenticeship route has failed. Fewer and fewer British youngsters are prepared to work for a jobbing plumber for a pittance. For older would-be plumbers, it's even harder, who could afford to survive on the apprentice's pay packet?
At last, Train4TradeSkills have addressed these issues by introducing the most comprehensive and varied way of combining existing work commitments while studying for industry recognised plumbing qualifications.
Train4TradeSkills are the only provider of plumbing courses that combine three unique ways to learn:
1. Study at home coursework and regular written assignments
2. Home based PC based e-learning, studying real life scenarios in a virtual reality house and
3. Practical study, in fully equipped workshops.
This is NOT a fast-track way to become a plumber, it's an extremely thorough and well-planned method of helping you learn and retain the information necessary to become a fully qualified tradesman.
In fact, students on the Train4TradeSkills course can expect to spend more time in the workshop than students studying on college apprenticeships. And by using this three-way blended learning method, using video, TV and computer screens, it's much easier to remember what you've seen and practiced.
Train4TradeSkills offers the only course available in the UK where you can experiment your newly acquired knowledge in a safe, PC-based virtual reality setting, to practice again and again, until you get it right. Much cheaper, safer and more effective than repeatedly bending pipes or soldering joins in the workshop or on a customer's premises, so that by the time you do get there, you're likely to get it right, first time.
You'll find you're tackling real life scenarios far sooner than a apprentice working for a jobbing plumber on a poorly paid apprenticeship, while at the same time, you can continue with your regular employment and `earn while you learn'.
Every Train4TradeSkills student will receive training at a centre approved by the top assessment bodies. When you have attained Key Standards you will attend the fully equipped ATL centre to take you right up to City & Guilds 6129.
