    Fast Track Training is not the greatest, but it is a starting point for people with the right mind set, it has never been or will ever make someone a professional plumber. It is a starting point of a very long learning curve that never stops because the trade will just keep evolving. People need to research what it is they actually want before parting with silly amounts of money, research costs nothing!!

    I was commenting on someones message about training to become a plumber the best way you can/available to you. But my post is pages away from his comment, woops! I cant afford to go to college full time and have to work and train. I am going from being a company director to an apprentice. So I am aware of my limitations and I am honest enough to know when a job is beyond my skills. But I believe in making my own path and this is what I am doing

    I saw good feedback and bad about the schemes. It suits me although I am nervous about the jump in career and salary. I asked when I signed up about apprentice schemes and how the quick route compares and was kind of fobbed off. I knew that when I was at Taymech/Taylor Woodrow the apprentices did about 4 years and went to college. I understand 5 weeks practical wont get me the same understanding as them but I understand it from the engineers side so I kind of think that helps me a bit and I might not be as green as others doing the courses. But looking forward to finding out and I hope people start spending money on bathooms and new heating systems!! Thanks for you encouragement!

    I'm thinking of doing a gas engineer course and I was wondering what peoples opinion on this is? Im planning on going with a company called Access Training Academy, what are the chance of me getting a job after completing the course and being on the gas safe register?
    Thanks

    First thing to realise with the t4ts course is, upon completion of the 5 weeks practical, you will only be qualified to the level of Plumbers Mate.
    You will need to do Site Training, (about 3 weeks, I believe) before becoming qualified to NVQ Level 2.
    Site Training costs extra in most cases.
    Something to look into before taking the plunge.
