    Lots of similar threads if you use the search.The general advice seems to be that many expensive courses do not give you the qualifications required.The problem is in getting the practical experience for the NVQ portfolio.If you are actually working as a plumber you may come across someone Gas Safe who would help.Check with your local college they should be able to advise you about course requirements.

    Depending on your age, i would advise Croydon college. They use to have an apprenticeship scheme where you would be in college studying one day a week and be working with a gas engineer for three or four days.

    hello and welcome,

    I wouldnt do a short course if your looking to get employed most places want experience and shy away from short course application
    IMPORTANT:
    Carbon Monoxide can be produced when ANY fuel is burnt, including oil, gas, wood and coal.

    Want gas safety or boiler repair advice? :
    Please supply your Gas Safe / Oftec / Hetas Number, DIYers, odd job people and have a go heroes need not apply, and remember any fuel burning appliance can kill
