Our Plumbing Systems Design curriculum has a strong practice-orientation underpinned by design thinking principles. The program begins with interactive, multi-disciplinary foundational modules to expose trainees to a practical mindset shift for precision in the trade. Trainees are then introduced to principles, tools, new technologies, standards and design essentials required to install, maintain and upgrade plumbing systems via a blend of theory and practical applications.

The program further exposes you to different categories of environments, buildings, and plumbing systems, so you are equipped to design safe and sustainable plumbing systems for residential and commercial use. The training ends with an extensive apprenticeship at a workplace where trainees engage industry players, work on exciting projects and apply concepts in real time.


The April 2024 intake for ACTT’s Plumbing Systems Design program is open to artisans and young people aged 18 and above. This program will run for a duration of 6 months (week days) and 7 months (weekends) in Accra, Ghana. Interested persons are encouraged to apply by 2nd April, 2024. However, we will welcome late applications on a rolling basis. Successful candidates will be notified within 5 days of submitting your application.
