    Testing whilst quoting?

    Little discussion with my boss regarding when quoting for say an extra socket to be installed. My idea was test the existing circuit on quotation to confirm existing circuit is a complete ring and do the Zs at the socket I’m coming off. His reply was just quote job, do the job then test...

    The most unusual find whilst on the job!

    Anyone done a 'short course' and made it work???

    By that I mean, has anyone done a quick course, got some of the basic qualifications and made it out into the world into a job to get some real experience? Most of the short course options seem to have 17th edition, 2382, maybe 2391 and 2377. No 2330 or NVQ's though...... Basic Part P...
