He says that there a lots courses on offer which train you to be a water installer but he says there are no jobs available. Brian has set up his own security company. He had to pay €4,000 in insurance, €4000 to the Private Security Authority and he is still not up and running because he has been waiting 8 weeks for Garda Vetting.
