Plumbing apprenticeship advice!



New Member
Next week I begin my plumbing apprenticeship but there's a few questions/concerns I have. Any help is much appreciated!

1. I have no experience in construction or tools or anything like that. Is that going to be a problem? Am I going to be expected to know basic stuff?
2. Do I need my own tools? Seems pointless to begin with seen as I don't have a clue how to use most of them.
3. Is it possible to leave apprenticeships? I have a backup plan incase this all goes terribly wrong, but before I start I want to know if there actually is a way out once I begin.

Thanks for any help!
