Hi to all my readers I have been taking a well earned rest since returning from my last set of practical’s in Featherstone, I have finished all my TMA’s for level 2 and am just waiting to here when I can get in for my final 2 weeks practical training which will include my GOLA end test and get me my level 2 accreditation.
I have my First workbook for the level 3 starting with module 33 Gas Installation (A) this is a 150 page module that is a bit daunting and I am a bit unsure whether to start it until I have completed my level 2 practical I also feel that I should be working with a Gas Safe registered plumber during this period of my training and as yet I have not been able to secure a placement for myself. So its quite a dilemma.
I have been approaching all the local plumbers but these are nervous times and all are saying that work is scarce and are unwilling to mentor anyone at the moment but I keep persevering and am casting my net further afield in the hope of finding a mentor.
Well that’s all for now I’ll be updating my blog on a weekly basis again now and hope to have some good news next week about my practical training thanks for reading, Regards Cliff
