    Is there any "logic" in just doing a course to have a trade to "fall back on". I dont plan to have it as my job unless im making serious cash (£300+ a day). Or do you have to keep up consistancy with the job(so its not practical to have it as a backup)?

    Thanks for your help guys, what courses did you guys do?

    yeah ive heard it gets very complicated sometimes. i have always wondered how much you can really learn on these condensed courses.

    id hate to do the course gets some work and screw someones house up. and as the starter said it would have to be for something in the range of 200-300 a day for me.

    can you tell me how it is in terms of finding work privately and how bad can jobs get working on peoples houses?
    thanks

    If that's your idea mate then forget it. You don't just do a course and then become a plumber.

    It'll take at least 5 years to become useful and qualified with the corgi and new water course and then you'll be slow.

    £300 a day...LOL after 10-15 years in the trade maybe LOL
