The Centre


At ALCCentre, our certified trainers and assessors help you become gas, oil, plumbing or electrical qualified. All our qualifications are nationally recognised and awarded through UK Certification, OFTEC and EAL. We offer only the latest current and relevant training methods for courses and assessments for Plumbing, Gas, Electrical and the Construction industry, with course start dates tailored as much as possible to your needs.

We run evenings courses for adults in all courses to make sure that your current earning ability is not effected and fit around your existing work commitments. Apprentices are very important to us so please see our course pages for further information and if you need any help please call. If you are already in the plumbing industry but are not qualified on paper, we can help you achieve your qualifications via an experienced operative route that is considerably quicker to achieve. More and more construction sites are insisting on plumbers having their CSCS card to prove they are competent to work on their own or even to get on-site.

Our EAL Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing and Heating will enable you to achieve this and allow progression to EAL level 3 (that includes the gas option) allowing you to pursue GAS SAFE registration. We also have a variety of courses for plumbers and heating engineers, such as the Cert-Ain Domestic Hot Water Systems (Unvented), Water Regulations Energy Efficiency (L1) that is aimed at heating engineers, Water Regulation and Energy Efficiency (Part L) and Health & Safety Awareness courses. Please look at our course pages for further information.

We also offer a comprehensive list of electrical qualifications including 17th Edition, Pat Testing, Periodic Inspection, Testing & Certification of Electrical Installations and Part P (allows full house wiring) and electricity for plumbers and heating engineers.

Each member of our team hold teaching, training and assessment qualifications and Internal verification awards. We aim to recognise as much prior learning and previous achievement as possible, so that teaching is only delivered where it is required and then targeted to individual needs.

Our centre incorporates comfortable, spacious training rooms, purpose built training and assessment bays for individual courses. All specialist safety equipment, tools and essential course work documentation is provided as part of your course.

Our fully equipped Reading based training and assessment centre has a quiet and relaxed atmosphere and ample free parking, with the railway station within easy reach, making us accessible from anywhere in the UK, especially for the London corridor where you will find our prices very competitive.
