Come to Penhale Camp, Holywell Bay Cornwall for your Plumbing Training Course!

We offer the City and Guilds 6035-02 Level 2 Certificate in Plumbing Studies.

Essentially, the plumbing training route can be thought of in two parts.  Firstly the time in the centre to undertake the practical and theoretical training to achieve the technical certificate, and then on site visits once you have completed the course, if you choose to go down the NVQ Diploma route, which involves visits by our assessors to you out whilst you are undertaking practical work, so that you can achieve your award.  We offer this to any candidate who is working in Cornwall.

Please contact us on 01872 278389 for an informal discussion about the Plumbing Industry, our training courses and current dates and prices.  We look forward to hearing from you!

All our courses run for small numbers (6 maximum) therefore you receive an excellent level of attention and there is much consistancy whilst you are here, both with your tutors and with your fellow course mates.

Plumbing is a thriving trade, with huge demand for new entrants.  Leading into a vast arena of further training and work, Plumbing is an ideal trade to begin your career in Construction. Practical, varied, challenging and interesting, Plumbing is the ideal start for practical work in properties, particularly bathrooms and heating systems, but impacts kitchens as well as the rest of a property.

Are you, or someone you know already working in Plumbing in Cornwall, but don't hold any qualifications?  We have a brand new Fully Qualified Level 2 Plumbing NVQ Diploma option that leads directly to the full award with minimum time required here at the centre.  Please see below / discuss with us.
