Plumbing Vetassess Practical

Recommended Posts

Guest ozzieandlea

Hi everyone

 

We`re new to this forum and was wondering if anyone can help me. I`m due to take my plumbing practical at Accrington next month and am taking the roofing option. Was just hoping if anyone has taken this option could they give me some information about it. I know it requires you to fab box guttering but was wondering if it`s lead,copper tin etc. I can`t find any info about it and if anyone can give me some help then I would be very grateful. Should I email Vetassess and ask them or is that a bad idea? The firm where I work employs roofers so they tend to do all the leadwork and I haven`t really done much leadwork since serving my time (22 years ago). Everyone keeps telling me I`m worrying too much and maybe that`s so but I don`t want to risk failing due to cost and delaying the visa application.

 

Thanking you all in advance

Hi madplumber

 

Thanks foy your reply. I am doing the General Plumber its just that I chose the roofing option rather than the gas. I can`t see me having any problem with the water and drainage parts as thats what I mainly do. Whilst I was serving my time the firm where I worked `split`the plumbers into water and H&V fitters. Cos I was an apprentice I had to stay on the water side(they promised me they`d train me up on the gas section as soon as I came out of my time then spent the next few years saying they didnt have the funds). I passed my gas on my advanced but thought you had to have the ACS certificate to take the gas option on the vetassess. Anyway I guess I`ll just have to knuckle down and get on with it.:sad:

The gas side of the practical is very easy...looked at the roofing section and it shouldn't be too hard depending on what they want you to do. The water and drainage side of things quite basic....good luck and lets me know how ya got on!!

There might be a chance you can change it on the day, or better still send them an email
