becoming a plumber

Postby stokedan1 » Sat Apr 16, 2011 9:40 am

im just looking for some advise from the experienced plumbers on here

im at the end of my City & Guilds technical certificate level 2, which i have been working towards for 2 years now on evening course at my local college, as i am 24 im told old for apprenticeship so got to do it the hard way.

im also about to do my BPEC unvented hot water and i am signed up for gas course due to start this september, another 3 years for that but obviously worth it.

im a qualified bricklayer and underground drain layer so ive got loads of site experience and experience dealing with customers.

the only thing is with the current climate im struggling to find work as a plumber, is there anything i can do or anymore courses i can do to make myself more employable?

im quite clued up on my plumbing so was thinking bout starting up on my own if nothing turns up as i already have van and good set of tools and have been self employed before.

any advice and opinions would be appreciated thanks
