Plumbing, wastes and drains training course overview

Maintaining the system of pipes, tanks, fittings and other apparatus required for a property’s water supply, heating and sanitation is an essential part of good building management.

Our course teaches how systems work and how to diagnose defects and plumbing problems. You will be able to identify the main components of a domestic plumbing system and understand how it functions. Candidates will also be taught how to use questioning techniques to identify simple defects relating to plumbing and drainage, and to suggest appropriate remedial works. Emphasis will be on the efficient and safe use of tools and materials in accordance with piping, safety, and building codes and regulations. Our course starts with the basics, and builds on this educational foundation with plenty of hands-on training. Most plumbing tasks are straightforward when you are shown how to do it the right way. We can help you gain confidence, knowledge and hands-on skills.

Our course forms one module of the Upkeep/ABBE Certificate in Diagnosing Defects and Ordering Repairs.

  • How cold water systems work

  • Locating the main components of domestic plumbing systems
