    The H&S, and rope access stuff can be good for gaining large contract work, but if you are after domestic customers then its totally pointless IMHO, unless you lack common sense in which case it could be useful. COurses like this are often started by people that have been in the trade but can't be arsed with the graft anymore, so they'd rather make a mint out of newcomers. They snag people on the course by planting fear in peoples minds, or making them feel inadequate without there qualifications. Window cleaning is one trade that you can safely crack on without qualifications etc. so dont get bogged down with it, and instead put that money towards advertising/better equipment etc. Just my opinion.
