“This course has pushed me to learn how to do so many new things. Getting the practical tasks right with the right measurements and fittings is really rewarding. Some of my favourite things in the practical lessons have been installing a sink, a radiator and working with LCS pipes. 
Learning about renewable energy sources and how they tie in with plumbing was another high for me because I didn’t know much about this subject before I joined.”

Lewis Harradine, L1 Plumbing
