    3hrs is not to bad , think yourself lucky that you dont live in the west country, Glow-Worm in Bristol is as near as we get for any boiler training !!

    Baxi courses at Warrington are very good and well worth going on, but there are actualy 4 courses from memory:
    Basic Electrical
    Boiler theory? - or similar
    Fault finding
    Advanced fault finding

    Can't do the fault finding course until you've done the earlier ones, not sure if they run back to back or not so at least only one journey if stayed over?

    Mr Combi one ok, but done in a shortish 1 day course at a hotel with mobile boiler on a jig so only could do electrical tests - but thats the majority of the tests - he also does a DVD which is ok. But no where near as detailed as the Baxi one.

    I did the Basic electrics, then boiler appreciation then the Fault finding 3 days in a row, then you go away and use the skills that you have learnt then go on the advanced fault finding, well worth doing,ive not done the advanced fault finding yet but will be booking on it soon.
