i am looking to do a course to become a plumber and electrician, then become self employed. I would like a few people to start it with me so a wider area can be covered, making more money. The courses are around £4,000 each, but are paid for by a student type loan provided by the people who do the courses, you then pay back a small ammount, think its about 27quid a week, once you have completed the courses and are earning in your own business.
My friend did the plumbing course and is earning up to £2,000 a week at the moment, the courses last 4 weeks but can be done in spare time, evenings etc.
Any one seriously interested in doing this with me, great business oppertunity, and a good trade to have as the government have made it illegal for anyone to do there own electrics.
reply on here or email me, richi_thfc@hotmail.co.uk
cheers

Its all well and good doing a 4week course, but that does not make you a competent tradesman.


I am an electrician which took me 2 years of an apprenticeship to acheive. I am now becoming an electrical/electronics engineer which takes another 2 years to acheive.

cheers for that.
I have been going on jobs with my mate who is a plumber, learning the basics, just obviously need the relavent qualifications to start your own company.
I know many people who are making a very good living from completing these courses

Was that plumbing course for £4000 through southwestplumbingskills or something? I looked into doing it through them but backpedalled very quickly when I learnt the cost involved!

South Devon College does plumbing courses, you can take an evening course one night a week & it's a lot cheaper

all sounds a bit too good to be true having said that

http://www.ppltraining.co.uk/plumbing_training/4_week_professional.asp

would say otherwise.

i guess the real training would take place after qualifying when you put all those foul ups into practice on other peoples plumbing :wink:

I cant say i like the idea of some one who had just had 4 weeks of training coming to my house....doing a big job for a whole week....and charging £2000. Seem's a bit of a rushed course. Im doing an nvq3 and a national diploma or something like that in bus and coach mechanics adn all in all that takes 4 years, and after that i am not considdered qualified untill i complete a improvers period.........i know its different, but 4 weeks???
