If you own a home then you would know that trouble can hit at the worst possible time, like at the start of a holiday weekend, and off-hours repairs can cost a small fortune. While some tasks may require an expert, the truth is that most of the times these problems require a simple fix. CTS College "Do It Yourself" programme is designed specifically for this, to help you save cost and to undertake simple repair jobs at home.
The Fundamentals of Plumbing (Level 1) programme is designed as "Do It Yourself" programme allowing persons to develop a broad range of skills and knowledge required to undertake simple plumbing tasks at home in a safe and secure manner. This course looks at the most popular plumbing projects around the home and office. The program is competency based and students will be assessed after every practical module.
The course is set over four weeks consisting of eight three-hour sessions amounting to twenty four (24) contact hours inclusive of a three-hour evaluation at the end of the program. It is practical based with the provision of all underpinning knowledge. It promises to be very intense. This programme is geared towards persons desirous of becoming more informed about plumbing systems within the home.
