    Central heating set ups and design is involved as is pipework, association of metals I couldn't tell you as that's obviously alien to me but I will check that out. Thanks for that

    Out of interest - why choose gas
    Potential earnings?
    Easy to get into?
    Something else?

    I can pretty much guarantee you won't get a job at the end of it unless you have an in. Companies are very hesitant of fast track courses

    It just seems like a job I'd enjoy doing and I need to get out the job I'm in. If I earn the same salary as I'm on in my current job I'd still be happy. I just want skills and thought this one was best.

    Would you be comfortable giving us an x-y bracket for pay and we could say if this is likely/achievable in the first couple of years

    I maintain you would appreciate it more if you did plumbing first. You will make more sense of the gas

    Are you a hands on type of person ? have you been involved with heavy & dirty work ? do you have any knowledge of the building industry ? Please don't spend lot of money doing this course if your impression of this type of work is watching someone repair your boiler and you think that this is an easy way to make a living! believe me its not ! it takes years of experience not months, people are under the impression that this job is easy money, but remember get it wrong and people can die ! 24K to start please get your head out of the clouds, You say you have a van and from what you are saying , you intend to start doing some gas work at the same time as you are doing your training ! do you understand that you will be braking the law if you do this ? Asking about tools ! you cant do this job with a screwdriver and a couple of spanners, wait until you have started the course then you will have a better idea of what is required, think in the area of 5K for tools when starting out.
