Learn Plumbing - Advanced Theory Course


Learn Plumbing Home page

Includes our disk of design spreadsheet software

The Learn Plumbing Advanced Theory Course follows on from our Installation Theory Course (knowledge level required for a Trained Plumber). It takes you up to and beyond the level of knowledge that is needed by an Advanced Plumber. It can provide much of the supplementary job knowledge evidence required for a National Vocational Qualification Level 3 in Plumbing (C&G 6089) or Domestic Heating (C&G 6088).

A copy of our Introduction to NVQ Level 3 and Interpreting Drawings, Specifications and Data Module gets you started. This explains more about the work of an Advanced Plumber and the essential differences between level 2 and Level 3 skills. It also describes the Level 3 qualification structure and the principles of creating an extended Evidence Portfolio to prove competence by doing actual plumbing work. Following on from this is a series of advanced self-study modules, with lots of design and planning exercises for you to complete.

Each module has a set of multiple-choice questions at the end to test your knowledge and understanding and provide evidence of your knowledge of the theory of plumbing design, planning and advanced installation skills.

The Advanced Theory Course consists of the study modules listed below together with a copy of our second computer disk of useful software.
