    Hey all,

    I just sat my lpg tickets this week. I'm now supposedly fully qualified to work on lpg. It's just that we were given no reference material to take away.

    Is this normal practice? Seems pretty poor to me!

    Cheers
    Amy

    I've not done LPG but have done Commercial N.Gas 4 times over the last 20 years and never had anything to come away with apart from my own notes.

    Ok, maybe been spoilt in the past. Last time I sat my ccn1 we were given the logic training manual. Which is great as a wee reference guide.

    Two days of being rammed with new facts and figures seems a lot to then be called competent and not have any way of accessing the material we were just shown.

    I just find it shocking, we are now responsible and have nothing to reference to. You pay £500 for a course and there is no reference material included. I think our industry needs regulated but the way the regulation bodies organise the courses just seem like taking your money and passing all the responsibility onto the installer. I will be buying some reference material so I can hopefully be doing my job right, but I do not feel much more qualified from sitting a two day course.

    How long ago was that! I phoned at least 5 centres. They were all pretty similar so I chose the closest.
