    I saw this mentioned on backroads.ie and on facebook. Starts next week. I don't know if places are still available or if it is any good. Unfortunately Waterford is much too far away for me. Would be interested to hear of any other similar courses in the Dublin, midlands or border regions.

    The course will start in early January, comprise of three parts, and will run two nights per week for approximately 24 weeks. The course will cover bare-metal restorations and all that is involved with panel repair, lead-loading, welding and brazing, as well as how to save and restore parts. Pre-paint preparation and painting will also be covered. The course will take place in a specially-prepared workshop with individual welding bays, work areas and a spray booth, located just on the outskirts of Waterford city. The course comes with City & Guilds certification and will cost approximately €320 per part; it is also open to those who are unemployed, to help them re-train or up-skill.

    Wow, sounds great and like you would be interested in something like this up this part of the country.
    Is this open for anyone or do you need to be an apprenticeship served mechanic for it?

    If I was living in that part of the world I'd be applying straight away and I don't have my time served in anything.

    Might do the FAS welding course in Finglas myself this year.
