    More to the point how much does he expect to earn to cover his outlay ? Why do people think that they can do a few weeks in a class room and walk out a fully experienced gas engineer, does he know what he needs to do just to join gas safe ? I've been in this job since the early 70s and still learning, Your 20K seems a fair price, maybe he will take up your offer !

    It's not a few weeks it's 7 months. Same duration as my local college the only thing about college is I'd need a mentor.

    I don't need a van I already have one, it's tools I asked about.

    That's assuming a. You pass, and b. That they don't mess you around to get through the foundation modules. What is your hope at the end of the course?

    I would have the qualifications for domestic work but I think my stumbling g block would be experience , the least amount of experience I've came across for a job is a year. That's why I want tools for at least a bit of back up to try and get some work till I get full time somewhere.

    A year is still pushing it mate. Plus most companies want plumbing experience which you won't have. Doing ACS will not teach you about central heating set ups or design. You will not learn pipe skills or working with different materials such as black iron. You won't learn the chemical associations of metals and how they can and can't go together. Once again I'm not being negative but you'd be better off getting plumbing skills and then maybe doing gas once you've built experience
