    As per the earlier text start your course and see how you go. Many sets will have stuff in you will NEVER use see what works for you

    I hope the OP keeps us updated on a regular basis has to how he is progressing through his course, maybe every couple of weeks, could be useful for other people thinking about taking this route, Not sure what the requirements are now for joining Gas Safe, but would they deem a 7mth course as enough experience to work on gas ?? question for you younger guys to answer ! what is acceptable to Gas Safe ?

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.
    The experienced were newly qualified once.... Is it even possible to get a gas apprenticeship now? Im sure I couldn`t.

    Course it is. It's not easy but no one should be gifted anything hence a recruitment process. Paying for these short courses means there is no selection so no competencies are tested prior to the course

    I told them I was incompetent before I started, but they were ok with that and set up a monthly DD. And my course took about 5-6 months.

    Setting up monthly payments to them was the only competence required. You can join MENSA by the same method.
