Craig talks about his plumbing experience he’s getting outside his T4TS course

Craig Watkinson is on the plumbing course with Train4TradeSkills and has a job as a labourer working for a plumber.

The winner of April’s Student of the Month competition, Craig talks about his job and the sort of practical experience he has been getting outside of his course. Craig says:

“I started my plumbing course at the end of Feb and I am really getting stuck into it as I now work for a plumber as a labourer. I also do some jobs on my own under supervision and the other day we went to a property where two radiators were not working, one was cold and the other was lukewarm…”

Read the rest of Craig’s story and how he fixed the radiator problem, as well as how he got the plumbing work, on Train4TradeSkills News. The story can be found on the Train4TradeSkills Blog
