    • Cold and Hot water system installations

    • Rainwater Systems

    Where might it lead? On completion of this qualification, candidates may enter employment as a Plumber or progress on to the Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Plumbing and Heating. Alternatively candidates may choose to specialise in gas, oil or renewable technology by completing further training.

    Delivery method Candidates complete the ‘Experienced Worker Route Template’, come into centre for online tests and complete the logbook within the workplace.

    Assessment methods Online multiple choice exams and the NVQ portfolio of evidence is collected on site through reflective accounts and formal observations in the workplace.
