    The plumbing course (C&G2 with or without NVQ) has quite a good reputation, unlike the electical one.

    Ye but you still have to do the nvq2 to progress onto a gas course.

    I'm about to start training with access( Edenbridge). Following ACS to become gas safe registered. The full course will take me around 16 weeks from start to finish including work experience with British gas or others alike.

    I've paid approx £8,300 for:

    Plumb - Mod 1 - Pipework - BPEC
    Plumb - Mod 2 - Airing Cupboards - BPEC
    Plumb - Mod 3 - Bathroom Fitting - BPEC
    Plumb - Mod 4 - Cloakroom & Guttering Installation - BPEC Plumb - Mod 5 - LCS & Framework - BPEC
    Plumb - Mod 6 - WRAS - Unvented - BPEC
    Gas - Mod 1 - Pipework & Gas Meters
    Gas - Mod 2 - Ventilation - Gas Rates - Reg
    Gas - Mod 3 - Legislation - Gas Analysers - DSC
    Gas - Mod 4 - Gas Appliances Training
    ACS - Refresher & Theory Exam
    ACS - Practical Assessment

    I will post an honest review after the course so everyone can have an honest insight to the training.

    -So far so good!


    P.s

    I do already have 8+ years experience within construction (new build & renovation) so I am familiar with some basic plumbing works etc..
