such as Health & Safety in building services engineering; Fundamental
principles and requirements of environmental technology systems; Plumbing system
installation planning; Sanitation and drainage systems; Complex central heating

Where will it take me?
Successful completion of the Level 3 course can lead to progression to
further studies in the plumbing and heating industry or in the construction
sector, such as HNC or HND qualifications. Students can go straight into
employment after the Level 3 course or begin an apprenticeship. Former students
have gone on to careers such as Designer Estimators, Project Managers, Site or
Workshop Supervisors, Chartered Engineers and Commercial Managers.
Whilst this sector doesn’t currently have a ‘Licence to Practice’ our
apprenticeships are recognised as fulfilling the competence requirements of the
voluntary card schemes and will enable students to register on a relevant
industry-recognised Certification Scheme which is evidence that an operative is
deemed competent to carry out a particular job role effectively and safely.
