A Plumbing Apprenticeship is a Modern Apprenticeship where apprentices receive training in
all aspects of commercial plumbing and heating:

  • reading design plans
  • removing old and installing new bathroom fitments in an occupied building
  • diagnosing faults in hot and cold water pipes, central heating systems, waste disposal and sanitation systems
