    Those of you who don't join a scam provider, how do you sign off your own work?

    EICR when not in a scheme.

    Hi guys Just wondering about doing testing when not in a scheme. So I'm fully qualified and also have my 2391-52 and have turned down quite a few side jobs of condition reports. However a few people have now said to me I can do them and use generic test forms and pass these on?? Is this correct?
