    Course starts 8am Tomorrow, it is a 5 day course 8am to 4pm, it will cost you nothing but you will buy the 'tutor' lunch each day.

    You will get practical hands on experience on WFP, power washing and gutter cleaning. Upon successful completion of the course you will be given a rating of 1 -5 on the back of a Costa Coffee napkin. :whistle:

    On a serious note, WFP there is tons and tons of info here and of on Youtube. As for gutters it is a matter of get up there, clear them out, unblock the downpipes, clean the outside and done.
    For power-washing talk to Eviesteve and Jake, they do quite a bit of it and can give you some good pointers no doubt.

    You only cossh if they ask you, the same goes for a risk assessment - this will only apply to commercial, you won't get any residential customers asking for a risk assessment lol !

    You don't need any licencesfor what we do on a daily basis
    If spraying weeds or cleaning products on to fascias etc I'm pretty sure the quantities and substances we use would never come under the scope of coshh
