You can go on grimsby college website and they do an e-learning c&g level 2 & 3 which im sure you can start when ever you wanted.

The thing with refrigeration is training and employment is a catch 22 situation.

You need to be working in the trade to do a full NVQ but to get the job you need the experience and qualification.

You could do the C&G tech cert which is the knowledge side of the NVQ and that will give you a chance of getting employment.

But.... and this is the killer.

Companies are struggling and training takes a back seat in this climatic situation. Companies are reluctant to employ inexperienced people at the moment.

All the best though
