    im out of my time now.. waiting on my certificate from my employer saying this but I don't want to make an issue about it because I'm leaving next month to start out on my own. But if he still hasn't sign it by then how do I get it? or does the employer use this to there advantage so they pay you less?

    You don’t get a certificate from your employer. The college you attended will issue one. As long as you ha e passed all the elements.

    Your employee will sign to say you have completed your time out as a trained plumber. This is what I'm needing.

    I very much doubt your employer will give this to you before the day you leave, and have given all his kit back to him...

    A pie of paper from an employer saying you are trained means nothing.
    Have you done a college course? The only accepted qualifications are from a college, or training centre.

    In 2013 he was about to start a pre plumbing college course, then he started as a 29yr old apprentice with the local council. So don't understand what piece of paper the employer has to sign off either.

    I had my indentures stamped and returned. But long time ago.

    I had indentures issued by our government's registered apprenticeship scheme. The UK doesn't have an equivalent? I have my City & Guilds L2 and L3 certificates and the extra one from the government scheme which talks about time served, the company I trained with and areas of work I was proficient in. I like the kind of old fashioned indentures I got.
