Qualifications and Training
There are no official qualifications required to be a bathroom fitter. However, it is generally advised to achieve GCSEs in English and mathematics at a grade C or above.
In Scotland, there are jobs available in this occupation, however there is currently no funded modern apprenticeship route to entry.
Many bathroom fitters obtain or have obtained qualifications in other jobs such as joinery, plumbing and electrical installation. Employers may also take you on if you have experience in a related trade such as plastering, tiling or cabinetmaking.
Some bathroom fitting companies offer construction apprenticeships, which will allow you to earn while you learn. Alternatively, you could enter the industry by learning installation skills through a college course.
