Where to learn plumbing, woodworks, etc?

As per title. I come from a long line of handymen but being a woman they did not teach me all in seriousness or depth. I can do most basic repairs but I need to go further. Now, I have inquired in a couple of bushibans but seems this kind of knowledge is obtained at vocational schools. Any suggestions?

Taipei city vocational development institute has a 800hr course which includes plumbing. Their homepage seems saying ARC holders can apply.

Is that ‘Taiwanese plumbing’?

Ain’t complaining.

Maybe B&Q has classes/seminars? I know Home Depot (B&Q ripoff, even with the orange square theme) in the States has them. Just a thought.

B&Q left Taiwan in 2015. Now it’s just 特力屋.

They have a 18hr DIY course.

Rats, they started already.

How about woodwork? The cats have defiled a lot of furniture. I also would like to be able to buld their furniture on my own, it is really expensive. A nice bed for Bobby would be nice.

There are a lot of really good instructional videos on Youtube. Just buy some tools and wood and learn as you go. But be careful not to saw your fingers off.

Or anyone’s head…the kittens like to inspect repairs. One climbed all over the Chunghwa guy when he came to fix up my line.

You will find a lot of cources or classes for woodwork 木工教學 by Google search.
