Neil started his plumbing career at 16 yrs. old here in Caversham and undertook a 4-year apprenticeship with a local Plumbing Company where he obtained his City & Guilds Level 2 and then went on to complete his level 3 Advanced City & Guilds qualifications. He has worked for several Plumbing & Heating companies over the years where he has been able to gain valuable experience and a wealth of knowledge learning new skills along the way. Neil has continued to build on this platform by keeping up to date within the heating industry and by attending regular courses. He is both a Gas Safe and Oftec Registered with over 35 years’ experience in the heating industry and also an Accredited Worcester Bosch and Vaillant Installer.
