    Im currently in a job where by the time 35/36 ill probably be retiring (29 now).

    Just putting the feelers out now on what are the first steps to becoming a qualified plumber.
    My career now is completely different to plumbing so have no experience what so ever!
    Books to initially read, best courses/college route to go down.

    Thanks in advance

    Loads of people are dreaming of or attempting to become plumbers.
    Take a search at your general region for plumbing and heating people and I bet you will be surprised to find there are at least one in every few streets, if not several.
    You will need to compete against all those, many of which will be very experienced.
    Personally I would say the easier type non trade jobs are better overall.

    Now he's having pipe dreams:eek:
