    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

    practical books

    Does anyone know of any good electrical books covering the more practical side of things (the building side) such as how to rewire a house, install SWA, with pictures etc. Most of the books cover the theoretical side, but there don't seem to be many on the practical. Marc
