    I'm not doing work while training I'm trying to build up tools for the end of my training while I have cash. Yes I am used to hard, dirty AND heavy work that's all I've done I never once said it was easy. If I thought it was a few spanners and screwdrivers I wouldn't be asking about tools!

    Just wait until you start, ask the person doing the training what he uses, don't be tempted to buy cheep tools, if you intend to do boiler work then you will need a good analyser , a multi meter just for starters that takes care of 1K , but you find it a struggle doing this job without having knowledge of plumbing systems and controls, most guys on here started has plumbers then over the years progressed in it doing gas work, when I started doing gas was part of the plumbers job, but over the years gas has become more specialized that is why you cant learn to do this job in a few months, will you be earning anything whilst training is it a hands on course or a home study one ??

    I understand what your saying regarding the plumbing side of things but I'm just not in a position for training beforehand. I am lucky enough to have a weekend job though in place to support me while I learn.
