    anyone here studying under the company 'New Trades Career' or green 360?

    Just needed some advice because a lot of people say it is a scam and i have already studied some of the course from their material. Would be nice to know if there are any other students with them too and know their experiences

    Making the trades (or fundamentally that knowledge behind them) accessible.

    An idea has been swimming around my head since i started my journey to becoming a electrician; Are the trades (any) accessible to those with disabilities? What's everyone's thoughts on the matter? Let's not beat around the bush here, the trades are very physical and demanding jobs however I...

    Should multi trades be qualified in each one.

    I assume this guy did a three year apprenticeship for each trade. But I guess he doesn’t specify what electrics he does.

    Metal clips/ties for data trades?

    Obviously bs7671 governs us in our electrical trade, and to the 18th we will need to use metal clips in all areas where cables are surface mount. So do data/cctv engineers have to use metal clips ect to prevent from premature collapse and who governs them to do so?
