Plumbing the depths is a blog by a lincolnshire-based plumber. He’s recently posted a nice summary of what it takes to become a qualified plumber. However, I advise any would-be artisans to take note of the final paragraph before embarking on any qualifications:

“As a tradesman it’s pretty much d’rigour that you can tuck a pencil behind your ear and then, come wind, rain or hail said pencil remains firmly behind said ear. Alas, and to my eternal shame, I can’t do this. I can just about tuck a pencil behind my ear but I then need to walk around all day like a catwalk model if it’s to stand any chance of staying there. This can be pretty disconcerting to the unwary customer and it doesn’t do much for your plumbing either.”
