Overview

Assuming no prior knowledge of plumbing skills, Steve Muscroft provides step-by-step guidance towards developing the essential skills needed by anyone wishing to embark on a career in this industry.

The reader is guided through each of the key areas and processes in the field of Plumbing, with additional emphasis on Health & Safety. The book fully covers the syllabus requirements for the Level 2 Technical Certificate and NVQ from City & Guilds, and readers will also find that topics essential to actual plumbing practice, not included as part of the Level 2 specifications, are introduced, such as gas fired boilers, service and maintenance aspects, and reference to the Water Regulations (1999). All material is fully in line with latest British Standards (BS 6700 and BS800). This breadth of coverage ensures this text will prove essential reading for apprentices, as well as a useful reference for practicing plumbers.

The book is designed to maximise accessibility of the text for the reader. Activities feature per topic area covered, to allow application of theory into practical contexts, along with ‘Test Yourself’ questions at the end of each chapter for use during college/centre training. These can also be compiled into the student reader's portfolio as evidence of learning. Each chapter concludes with a set of multiple choice questions, following the style of the City & Guilds knowledge assessment, enabling the student to revise the key concepts introduced in that chapter. These MCQs will also serve as essential preparation for the 6129 Technical Certificate exam. Model answers and answers to Activities are included for reference.
