A learnership is a workbased learning programme. This means that classroom studies at a college or training centre are combined with practical onthejob experience. We learn much better when we can practice what we have been taught in the classroom in a workplace environment.

This is the single level Learnership but can also be used to pursue one’s career as a plumber. The knowledge and experience gained in this qualification focused on hot water systems used in our everyday lives. During the year the learners will receive knowledge and experience on

  • Mounting and connecting a solar heating/hot water system.
