Choosing a trades person to enter your home and complete some work is frequently a difficult process, and one of the elements we take into account when choosing a plumber is their level of education.
When entrusting someone to work with water and plumbing, where there is a chance that something could go wrong and cause significant harm, the homeowner seems to think that qualifications are crucial. So, who is a qualified plumber?
College or Trade School, P.H.C.C.
The demand for spots in plumbing courses is high. You could pursue a Level 2 or 3 year Diploma in Domestic Heating and Plumbing. After that, you could submit an application for trainee employment with a plumbing business.
Although I have heard of some job trainees costs a significant amount and you graduate in 8 or 10 months or there abouts. But like I said these are pricey.
The P.H.C.C. Courses are free. You just have to get on a waiting list. But are for non union shops. And the classes are taught by a licensed plumbing contractor.
An effective entry point into the sector is an apprenticeship with a construction company. Anyone over the age of sixteen is eligible for an apprenticeship. You will have a full-time job with your employer as an apprentice, and you must put in at least 30 hours per week. Your time will be divided between a college or training facility and on-the-job training.WorkTo work in the construction sector, you must have work experience. This could be acquired in school, through weekend and holiday employment with a construction company handyman experience etc. or relative, or through other means.
Any prospective employer will be happy to see that you have work experience included on your job application.
Experience at Work and Study with The P.H.C.C. is The Best
You might be able to find work as a plumber's helper, trainee, or assistant if you have a High School Diploma (or the equivalent) in English and math in addition to strong practical skills is a plus. In order for you to qualify, your company might then assist with training.
Or Like I said depends if you can get in without schooling (On The Job Training) but this method is not recommended to start in a plumbing company.
You may be able to apply directly to an employer if you have training or experience in the field of plumbing and heating.
Or Rather once you are enrolled in and or completed several evening courses. Like The P.H.C.C. Training. And then begin working also. The ideal situation is to study and work in the plumbing field.
