What can I expect from my plumbing apprenticeship?

From the offset you will be expected to work and learn side-by-side your mentor inheriting as much knowledge as possible and gaining a great understanding of the requirement to become a plumber. After a few months the likelihood is you will be required to be able to perform a few plumbing tasks while they are shadowing you and then overtime you will have gained the confidence and ability to be able to perform those same tasks independently. 

The practical elements of Plumbing Apprenticeships can vary from employer or training provider, however overall the fundamentals are all the same and the outcome will also be the same. Day to day tasks during your plumbing apprenticeship could include:

  • Learning how to change fittings
  • How to measure and use correct fittings
  • Assist with the installation of water systems
  • Fault finding and recommendations
  • 1st and 2nd Fix observations
  • Unblocking drains inside and out of the premises
  • Installing appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers
