    So been trying to get on the Riello course for the last 2 years.
    Dropped them a line early last year. ‘Training Callander not open yet, Sir. Call back later”
    Called them back a bit later. “Sorry Sir it’s full, but I can put your name down for 2018”. “Yes please, says I”.
    Soooo, calls them back early this year. “Sorry it’s full”.
    “How did that happen ?. My names been down since last year”
    “Oh, the training slots always fill up straight away with groups. Somebody should have told you that”
    Grrrrrr !

    Has anyone managed to get on the Riello course, and if so, how ?

    It's supposed to be the best course around

    Not managed it either, fortunately my BIL has 30 years experience with them and their tech support is OK, thats how i have survived.

    Thanks for that magicno1. I've dropped them a note. I see they also do courses at Hawes which is a bit closer for me.

    A manual for each Riello burner type and that should do as reference.
    The rest you need is just an understanding of servicing and repairing needs of any oil burner and how to use an analyser.
