Are fast-track plumbing courses just money down the drain?

Unemployed people, desperate for new jobs in a tough market are paying thousands for courses in plumbing – only to find they can’t find work and nursing a loan they find difficult to pay.

It is sad but true, I have just read this interesting article in the Guardian by Jamie Elliott about people desperate for work who are being cajoled into taking up ‘fast track’ plumbing courses. The link to the article is http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2010/may/15/fast-track-plumbing-courses

The bottom line is there is no work for the plumbers we have, so the only people who are making money are the organisations running the training courses.
