    Update on fake leather sofa and developments

    So just to say I got a full refund which is good of them. They were concerned as they believed they were selling quality leather.

    Hi all. I completed an apprenticeship via the CITB way back in 1992 (C&G 236 part 1&2 + JIB AM1), I think it was the 16th writing regs at the time. My employer at the time apparently “liked” me a lot and decided to have me managing/supervise the contracts/jobs instead of being on the tools...

    Update of the past apprenticeship quest.

    Evening all, I haven't posted in a fair while as I've been disheartened and annoyed. You may or may not remember last year I was asking if anyone was looking for a helper/mature apprentice. Seems just under a year I've consistently rang around, posted little flyers in my local merchants and...

    Am I qualified still?

    Hi, I served my JIB apprenticeship in the 1980s and managed to get C&G parts 1,2 and C course 15th edition. I moved on in my career but did go back to college and updated to 16th edition. I've not worked as an electrician since 2000 and wonder whether I'm still qualified? I'm thinking of...
