Train to Become a Plumber with Our Online Courses

Alpha Tradesmen Academy’s online plumbing trade school course offers comprehensive, professional training for anyone looking to become a certified plumbing technician. Lead instructor Robert Keith has served as a plumbing technician for over three decades and will lead students on a detailed course drawing from his own extensive experience and research. Using brief lectures, live demonstrations, visual aids, and real-life examples from the field, students of all experience levels will learn the finer points of the plumbing trade. These video lessons are sorted into badges, which cover a wide range of topics within the plumbing trade. Following each lesson will be a short quiz based on information from the videos, with a cumulative final exam coming at the end of each badge. Students must answer all these questions correctly to progress to the next course.

This first badge covers all the fundamental elements of plumbing. It begins with lessons on plumbing theory and history to give students a better fundamental understanding of the trade.

Unpleasant or unusual odors in the home can be a sign of severe, even life-threatening issues in a plumbing or septic system. In this badge, Robert will teach about leaks inside gas and DWV systems.
Many homes, businesses, and other establishments use gas-powered utilities. While there are many advantages to using gas, there can be severe consequences for unprofessionally installed or maintained gas lines or appliances.

Underground service lines require extensive work and knowledge for proper service, maintenance, and installation. Initial lessons in this badge will cover the excavation process to teach students the safe and professional methods for digging.
Many homes and other establishments utilize septic systems, making their installation and service a regular part of the plumbing trade.
The wide array of pumps used in plumbing often cross over into work in other fields, including electrical and HVAC work. Students will be versed in electrical circuit boards in pumps, as well as look at condensation pumps in heating and air units.
In the plumbing field, technicians are bound to encounter a variety of pumps that serve a wide range of uses. This badge will give an in-depth look at valves and will provide instruction on diagnosing issues and making repairs as well as installing new valves.

Wells are a common source of water for many residences and places of business. In our Well Systems badge, students can learn the ins and outs of well systems and the proper techniques to install and service them.

FAQ

Alpha Tradesmen Academy is designed to train students of all experience levels. Our online trade programs start by teaching the basics of the field in the Certified Service Technician course. Lessons in these courses will introduce even completely novice students to the theory, tools, materials, and methods they need to know to enter their respective trades. Likewise, more experienced students will also benefit from our programs, since they provide students with up-to-date information on modern practices, techniques, and equipment.

In the past, traditional trade schools forced students to arrange their schedules around attending classes and taking quizzes and tests. Since all of Alpha Tradesmen Academy’s resources are available online, students can watch video lessons and take assessments at their own time and pace. Our program works along with the hands-on experience students will gain while working as apprentices, so it is designed to be flexible with students’ working hours and personal lives. MOBILE FRIENDLY

Students gain access to Alpha Tradesmen Academy’s video lessons and assessments for a year upon enrolling in a course. This system allows students who have completed the course to rewatch the videos if they need a refresher course before embarking on a job. Our online lessons are available 24/7 on our mobile-friendly site, making it easy to watch the videos anytime.

Students of Alpha Tradesmen Academy are strongly encouraged to become apprentices with local companies to earn real-world experience in the field. Our program was made to work alongside the experience students will gain as apprentices. With our system, students will be able to work and earn wages as apprentices and train online on their own time.

The convenient badge system is unique to Alpha Tradesmen Academy. All of our online trade programs are divided into courses that cover a specific subject within the trade. After completing all of the video lessons, quizzes, and final exam in the course, students are awarded the corresponding badge. These badges help students, business owners, and coworkers easily understand the subjects in which students have or have not been trained.

At the end of the day, company owners are left with three options: leave technicians untrained and inexperienced, send technicians to costly, inconvenient traditional trade schools, or utilize Alpha Tradesmen Academy’s ground-breaking online program. With our 30-day guarantee and limited time offer of two free bonus badges, employers have nothing to lose and plenty of benefits to gain!
