You can now join our CP scheme with NO main plumbing qualification if you can demonstrate that you have a minimum of 10 years experience (simple CV and/or supporting letters will suffice). We have had a series of meetings with key bodies and used your comments based on real industry practice to achieve this very sensible relaxation in the operating procedures.
Just one word or warning though, this arrangement will not last indefinitely so DON'T DELAY, join now while you have the opportunity to do so.
All scheme operators are being forced to go for minimum qualifications in the very near future so be warned. As for the best scheme to join, APHC is run by Plumbers for Plumbers, and if you work with more than one fuel or have more than one supervisor then there is no doubt at all, our scheme is by far the most attractive, don't just take our word for it, check it out for yourself.
