Qualified Plumbers; Advice please.

Postby Red_Man » Tue Feb 26, 2008 11:22 am

Looking on doing this course later this year.. ... sional.asp

Can ya just have a quick look and then answer these questions please.

After this course is completed what else do i need to become a Level 2 Qualified plumber? (Is it just C&G 6089)

How long roughly will the C&G 6089 take? and am i right in thinking i have to be employed within the industry to gain the 6089?

If so, do you think i will find it easier to gain working having the other certificated and be only needing the C&G 6089?

Any other information you think i should know?

I realise this isn't the ideal way to become a plumber, but I'm 23 and work in an increasingly unstable motor industry, and I'm looking for a way out before I'm forced out!

These qualifications arent worth nothing and wont get you a job. Plumbing firms take apprentices from local colleges, and look for time served plumbers to employ. The only way to get the NVQ level 2 is to start up on your own. Plumbing is becoming over subscribed, you have been warned.

google search British gas engineering academy

Do 1 years training
then do 2 years on your own gaining experience
then the worlds your oyster, well maybe not but youll be minted and get another job easy if you wanted to. worked well for me.
