    Hi, I'm about to start a gas engineering course and I'm trying to buy all the tools beforehand. Does anyone else know if there's a full tool kit available from anywhere?

    Buy what you need as you find you need it. Everyone works differently and has different techniques. Maybe pass your course first. Do you have a plumbing background??

    As above, because there are too many variables.

    Domestic, Commercial, Install, Maintenance or all of them?

    Are you employed currently in the gas /plumbing field?

    Your prospective / current employer may provide some tools depending on where you work.

    No I don't have any experience at all, my current job is unstable and I am unskilled so I am starting the course in April. I was looking for tools while I have a half decent income to buy them . The plan is to find work but have a back up plan with tools and van incase it takes time to find work .

    If you have absolutely zero plumbing experience i would strongly recommend speaking to your local college first

    I will only be qualified for domestic afterwards. There's 4 weeks basic plumbing involved and that's the only plumbing I would know.

    I am not being negative mate but rather concerned for you and your money. It's not a job that you can pick up and do with no experience. I would strongly advise against

    It takes years to be half decent at this trade that's after an a 4 year apprenticeship also you need to work along side someone who knows what there doing you can't just throw a few grand to a trading centre and walk out a gas engineer most times it's a con to get your money .but good luck to you just be careful
