Plumbing and Heating Technician Apprenticeship (9189).
The 8202 Technical Certificate and 6035 Level 2 Diploma provide the knowledge and practical skills to prepare you for an apprenticeship.

The apprenticeship and 9189 Level 3 Diploma will give you an understanding of suitable on-site skills and further knowledge required to work in the plumbing industry.

Once qualified, there are many specialist qualifications available, such as environmental technology systems and designing and planning complex water systems.

How to achieve your qualification
The requirements for successfully obtaining your qualification depend on which programme you are enrolled on.

8202 and 6035
Level 2 is assessed using one multiple choice examination and one practical synoptic assignment.

For the synoptic assignment, a typical brief might be to install a cold water supply and hot water distribution pipework connected to all sanitary appliances. You will need to draw on skills and understanding developed across the qualification content in order to consider the specific requirements of the particular system and related plumbing principles, and carry out the brief.

This includes the ability to plan tasks, such as plant, materials and equipment for an installation, and apply the appropriate practical and hand skills to carry them out using appropriate tools and equipment.
You will also demonstrate that you are following health and safety regulations at all times by drawing upon your knowledge of legislation and regulations.

The exam draws from across the content of the qualification, using multiple choice questions to:
• confirm breadth of knowledge and understanding.
• test applied knowledge and understanding - giving the opportunity to demonstrate higher-level integrated understanding through application, analysis and evaluation.

Level 3 is assessed using multiple choice tests and practical assignments. These will happen at the end of each phase of learning, with there being four phases in total. Learners will also be expected to keep a work log for the duration of the programme.

The apprenticeship is assessed separately to the on-programme qualification and is assessed by an end-point assessment (EPA).In order to progress through the end-test gateway to end-point assessment, you must complete the following:
• Level 3 Diploma in Plumbing and Domestic Heating qualification (9189)
• Level 2 Maths
• Level 2 English.
The graded EPA will be comprised of the following assessment methods:
• multiple choice test
• design project
• practical installation test
• practical application test
• professional discussion.
