Have you recently enrolled in a training program to update your skills? In today’s constantly changing industry, ongoing training is a valuable way to stay ahead of the game. With evolving technology and regulations, it’s rare to find a plumber who has nothing left to learn. Therefore, regular training updates are essential.
Keeping qualifications up-to-date is particularly crucial in areas like above ground drainage systems. Unfortunately, this field is often overlooked because people wrongly assume it to be a low-level skill. However, the reality is quite the opposite. Above ground drainage problems and misconnections are increasingly relevant in the plumbing world, and over a quarter of a million UK homes may have drainage misconnection issues.
Plumbers looking to refresh and update their knowledge of the design and installation of above ground sanitary and rainwater systems should consider training in this area. Basic plumbing applications on plastic waste pipe and rainwater guttering should not be overlooked, as they are the foundation of the profession. Learning should never stop, even after an installer becomes qualified. Continually changing legislation, evolving technology, and challenging sector demands require installers to keep up-to-date.
Our Sanitary and Above Ground Drainage Course is an excellent way to stay one step ahead. The course can be booked via a digital booking form, and the training materials are delivered electronically, making it accessible from anywhere. You can print off the materials at home or view them on a second computer screen or tablet. The end assessment is carried out using Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available for free download from the Adobe website.
In response to the challenges of offering training and assessment in a safe environment, we have worked closely with BPEC to ensure that we can deliver training and assessment remotely. Using Microsoft Teams, delegates can log in using a PC or laptop and go through the training for up to 2 hours per day, for up to 4 days. Upon successful completion of the course, delegates can then undertake an online assessment using a blend of long answer and multiple-choice questions and visual exercises.
