Taught over an eight month period, you’ll work closely with our expert teachers who will guide and support you every step of the way. You’ll gain the skills and confidence you need to take on further studies, while building relationships in the industry.
And because we know you’re a hands-on person, this course is designed to be as practical as possible, giving you real-world experience in the plumbing industry. Sounds pretty good to us!
When you complete this course, you’ll have a range of skills needed for employment, but you’ll also have the ability to study a higher-level qualification, the Certificate III in Plumbing (Apprenticeship).
The Certificate III in Plumbing (Apprenticeship) will help you gain expert level skills in the plumbing industry and improve your employment opportunities, which could even mean working for yourself.
