We quickly ended up knowing quite a bit about plumbing courses and training in the UK.
We setup our first trade-related forum in April 2006. I think the 22nd to be precise. It went well, it was a wall and floor tiling advice website and we always supported training centres, so that we could collate questions and answer them on a central website so we had a nice big database of common wall and floor tiling questions and answers.
Late 2007 we started a plumbing forum. And then an electricians forum.
As a result of those, we support some training centres, who recommended their students come visit the forum and share their questions and advice and grow each others knowledge together.
We now have some of those members that have been fully qualified plumbers for quite some time, providing advice to newer members that are on plumbing courses, and they even help budding trainee plumbers to find the right places to go on plumbing courses.
Some local colleges to plumbing courses but it can take a while going down that route. We’ll list a whole bunch of colleges across the UK further down this page.
Some Typical Plumbing Courses found after doing a quick search online.
National Training Centres, Courses Cover Both Practical & Theory Modules – From £35 P/Week. We Take You From A Novice To Be Fully Qualified And Able To Work In Your Chosen Trade. Limited Spaces. Fast Track Career. All Experience Levels.
The UK Government Website says an experienced plumber can expect a wage of £40,000 a year. I know plumbers earning much more than that. But I know some earning a lot less too. So it perhaps does average out to about that in all fairness.
