...BTC easily was the best by far...
Every other course provider advertising on the net told me I had to do the 6129 basic plumbing certificate and NVQ level 2 before I could do the gas training, which is what I really wanted to do.
After spending an hour with James at BTC (and getting to see the training actually being done) I saved wasting a year of my time and over £5k on courses I don’t need.
You CAN train straight away to be a fully qualified gas engineer, other course providers just want that extra £5k for a quick basic course and will tell you anything to get it. The key with BTC is the work placement. I found the course information at BTC very clear and structured in a logical way that makes it easy to understand, so easier to make your decisions and there was no pressure at all to sign up or pay deposits. I have been a Sales Rep for 19 years in the construction industry and have been out of work for 2 months with no jobs available.
At 36 years old I will be retraining with BTC as a gas engineer in September in Corby, Northants. After 2 months of researching these courses I can only be honest about my experiences and so recommend BTC easily as the best by far. Thanks for your help, James.
