    Without any knowledge of how systems work you are going to struggle doing this job ! what do you intend doing when you have finished this course ? and doing this course still wont let you work on gas, you will still need to do the ACS courses then get accepted on the Gas Safe register.

    On a brighter note, there may be an awesome toolkit on Ebay in 12 months!

    Hi Abgash, this is where some people come a cropper. They cant get the practical hands-on experience, so they cannot build a portfolio of evidence and so cannot get registered. Documented hands on experience is necessary to get yourself registered and most people struggle to get that.

    [QUOTE=SteveWannadoGas;918438]Hi Abgash, this is where some people come a cropper. They cant get the practical hands

    This is what he cant seem to grasp , he seems to be under the impression that by doing this course he will be able to work on gas ! someone seems to be misleading him into doing this course, he has no experience in the plumbing trade, not sure what he is doing for a job at the moment ? But is convinced he will be qualified to work on domestic gas after this 7mth course ! someone needs to have a serious talk with him B4 he throws his money down the pan.

    Unfortunately the forum is awash with such people, come on here asking for advice then don't hear what they expect or want to hear. Fair enough, he's only asking about tools but has been given some serious food for thought regarding qualified versus experienced. I was lucky enough to go down the apprenticeship route including 7 years of college and learned more from the blokes I was working with than the plums trying to teach me at college. Anyway, advice given and best of luck to the O.P.

    At the end of the course I will sit an ACS assessment.

    ACS assessment comes at the end of the course. I'm hoping to do boiler and cooker work.

    I never asked advice, as you said I asked about tools.
