About Our Online Lesson Plan

Video lessons in this badge will feature lead instructor Robert Keith. Robert has over 30 years of experience as a certified plumber, and the material in these lessons comes from his own professional experience and research.

The lessons will consist of discussions as well as examples and demonstrations of proper methods, techniques, and tools used in work with underground utilities. The videos may also use visual representations like charts and diagrams to help illustrate concepts and data. Lessons in this course will show students the safe and professional methods to install and service underground lines. Our lessons are made for students of all experience levels. Since Alpha Tradesmen Academy offers 24/7 access to materials, students can access the video lessons from a computer, smartphone, or other devices if they need a refresher after completing the badge.

Online Underground Utilities Testing

After watching all the videos in a lesson, students will be prompted to take a short quiz with three or more questions based on the material covered in the video lessons. A score of 100% will be needed for students to proceed to the next lesson. Students are allowed to rewatch the lessons and retake the quiz until they pass. This way, students can better retain any information they may have missed the first time. At the conclusion of the course, students will need to take a final exam based on all the material covered in the Underground Utilities course. Like the lesson quizzes, students can only pass with a 100% score. After a student passes the final exam, they have finished the course and have earned their Underground Utilities badge. This course should make students and their supervisors feel confident in their knowledge and abilities in the field relating to underground utilities. Students are also encouraged to expand their plumbing knowledge by enrolling in our various other badges.

FAQ

Alpha Tradesmen Academy’s online plumbing courses include a Certified Service Technician course that covers all the basics that novice students need to know. The video lessons will introduce students to the correct terminology, theory, equipment, and methods for a wide variety of areas in the plumbing trade. As students progress to more specific courses in the program, they will gain a richer understanding of the overall trade.

Even the most seasoned plumbing technicians can utilize our online lessons to gain up-to-date knowledge on the latest methods, fixtures, tools, equipment, and more. Our videos also cover updated codes and regulations regarding safety and environmental concerns. More experienced students can also use our lessons to refresh their knowledge of the fundamentals of plumbing and other areas where they may be unfamiliar.

Inexperienced Alpha Tradesmen Academy plumbing students are encouraged to find an apprenticeship position at a plumbing company in their area. As an apprentice, students will gain experience while performing real jobs in the field. The hands-on experience will give students a better understanding of plumbing, as well as help the students meet the hours required to gain a plumbing license in most areas.

The plumbing program from Alpha Tradesmen Academy offers the knowledge students need on virtually all aspects of the plumbing trade. Students will be able to use the information they receive in our course when completing jobs as an apprentice, as well as when taking any necessary tests to get their licenses. Our program also allows students to more easily complete their required hours by granting them 24/7 access to lessons, quizzes, and tests online. Additionally, many products today require special certification from the manufacturer to be properly installed. Alpha Tradesmen Academy will show students how to get these certifications from either traditional or online courses outside of our program.

Many plumbing courses are directly or indirectly sponsored by competitive plumbing businesses, who use the courses as a means to recruit technicians from other companies. Likewise, other programs teach plumbing students how to leave their employers and start their own companies. Alpha Tradesmen Academy helps avoid these situations by creating an environment free of predatory practices and by training students to work as apprentices and technicians, not business owners.

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!
