More Training for your Money.

Quality classroom time, lots of tools in hands time.  Although our plumbing courses are short they are very intensive and you will be in the workshop completing practical plumbing on day 1.  The only way you are going to learn to complete practical tasks is by completing the tasks yourself.  It is one thing having the practical skills though it is another having the theory to complete them properly.   Therefore during your training you will spend quality time in the classroom learning the theory you need to succeed.

It is also important when completing a plumbing course that you are using a range of tools and materials and not just pushfit plastic.  You gain confidence by using the correct materials.

Using the property development skills taught during my time at the Construction Skills College enabled me to completely renovate a damp, mouldy and unloved property into a contemporary family home.

Completing all the plumbing, tiling, bathroom fitting, minor structural works and decorating myself, the College gave me the confidence and practical know-how to work beyond the course content.

This was down to the professionalism and dedication of the instructors who devoted their time to ensure everyone developed at their own pace whilst stretching those with a particular skill.

Now on the market and with the first viewings this week, I am expecting to make a £20,000 profit for my 3 months renovation work. This profit and equity from the sale will be funding my next purchase so onwards and upwards
