Plumbing Technical Certificate

The Plumbing Level 2 Diploma is the ideal progression route from the Level 1 qualification, and is also available to new entrants with basic and prior knowledge of the industry.

Everything on this course is about developing the more advanced skills you’ll need to be a success in the industry. That means you’ll be looking at more advanced techniques, working on more complicated projects in our specialist workshop facilities.

Assessment consists of completing a practical workshop assessment and online examination. You are expected to participate in mandatory work experience placements and activities. Upon completion, you can progress to further study Level 3 or be well prepared for an apprenticeship or employment within the plumbing industry.
