Thinking of becoming CORGI registered!!

Found 15th Feb 2009
Think may start doing plumbing course and become Corgi registered!

Does anyone know how long the courses are and the costs involved?

Has anyone done this and is it worth it?

Have got a degree in Business and IT but thinking of doing something different as good to be multi-skilled!!

Any help much appreciated!!

Thanks!!

Surely doing a plumbing course is not dependant on becoming Corgi registered.
Do the course first then when you understand the plumbing/heating trade a little more consider becoming Corgi registered.

I heard it costs around £700 a year to register. You can still get work without that outlay.
I thought CORGI registered pertained to Gas Safety and not plumbing :?

I know but no one really trusts you and most of the building R+R require Corgi registered person to fit the appliances. It is one off payment to get registered and also not that bad at DIY! :-D

they sure are, not sure when the move over is though :thumbsup:
I wouldn't bother becoming corgi registered, it costs a small fortune every year to keep it up to date.

Just stick to plumbing

Call out charges have zero to do with corgi. That's just greed on the part of the plumber.
