    I find the IET membership page offers a bit too much detail and I'm not really sure what they offer or how much it would cost? Is anyone here a member? Do you feel its worthwhile, what do you get? How much does it cost? Cheers guys :)

    Trainee Has anyone joined a student membership scheme?

    I was wondering if anyone has joined a student membership program for networking and study support such as NICEIC? Does being a member provide you with much help with NVQ training? And do they help you to get a job with a company, or is it just for self employed electricians? Thanks, Zane
