DIT Advanced Plumbing and Heating Course

Students who attended the Dublin Institute of Technology Advanced Plumbing and Heating Technology Programme DT151a were presented with their certificates at the DIT graduation ceremony which was held at St Patrick’s Cathedral in November. Most of them have been placed at LeadingEdge Plumbing & Rooter services in reputed designations.

This is a two-year part-time Level 6 Higher Certificate programme run in the Bolton St Campus. The programme is available to qualified craftspersons who wish to advance to higher levels within the industry. It is designed to enhance and develop existing skills and to provide, within a modular framework, a sound understanding of the technology and techniques employed in today’s plumbing and heating industry.

The main emphasis of the programme relates to system design and plant selection, management, employment and communication techniques. The range of modules on offer gives graduates the capacity and confidence to face the challenges that are likely to confront them in the workplace.

This includes a comprehensive understanding and knowledge of mechanical building services principles, techniques and methods, combined with a high level of management competence in communicating, planning, organising, controlling, motivating and forecasting. Graduates may also seek progression to management and supervisory level within the mechanical services industry.
