    Level 2 work available

    I'm currently doing a electricians course and plan on getting my level 2 this year. I'm just wondering what work would be available for me when I get my level 2. I ideally don't want to be on apprenticeship wage as I can't afford to live on that. I will also be going for my level 3

    Can you sign off any work with a 30ma RCD.

    Hi, my question is. If I have an old wylex consumer unit with NB type 2 breakers (not 60898). Or let's say any CU for that matter. If it's protected by a 30ma RCD, will that pass the cert?. Or for example will the use of old mcbs not be up to standard. Thanks
