    Hi Nicky,

    I dealt with them early this year and i would seriously avoid them!! They sound good with what they say etc. and i had a very nice phone call were they offered to send someone round for a chat to help me understand what the course is about etc. but what they sent was a very pushy sales women who wanted £100 deposit there and then, and then put a contract in front of me. She managed to get me credit for the couse which would be cheap monthly repayments but then i asked how it works? she then told me a very long and convincing story.... what basically ment i would get some txt books and a dvd software with a virtual house to work on using my laptop etc. and once every couple of months a qualified gas engineer etc would come and see me to see how things are going then i would recieve tests through post and thats how i would become qualified. The only pratical would be one day in a training centre (not theres).

    I have now found this place called brookhouse training in cleakheaton which you should defo look at (there not sales lol) still do research tho as i have not actually started with them yet but i have been to opening days etc and it seems fantastic, i will be doing c&g 6132 and acs assesment.

    Thats the same date for all courses i have looked at... i believe thats because sometimes they change in the way there done etc. but the actual qual will still exist next yr. so in jan it will say last reg 31.12.2011

    sorry mate thats not the case. every new qual is agreed for 5 years, that is their life span. sometimes when the new qual isnt ready they extend the current one, the plumbing 6129 tech cert is now 7 years old!!! so has already been extended and therefore summitskills are under pressure to get it out there v soon

    you have 3 years from registration to complete, by then all new entrants will be getting the new qual, which leaves you a bit old hat im afraid

    Hi Nicky,

    I recently done my acs and all my gas modules with able skills and I would highly recommend them. Ian and Roy that run the gas courses are brilliant tutors and really know their stuff. I would have nothing bad to say about them or the centre itself at all, its a real top place where all the tutors I met and had experience with were all very professional. Of course they want your money its a business, but a very good business with highly trained staff and top class facilities. I might sound like I'm hyping them right up, but from my experience their top class and would recommend them to anyone. Good luck if you go ahead with them.

    Regards Phil
