HOW TO ACCESS THE ELECTRICIANS ARMS

The Electricians Arms is the access-only area for professionals working in the industry. No public can see this area. So we allow discussion about trade prices of tools and products, complaints about customers and shops etc, general moans about life and the job (that perhaps you wouldn't want your customers to see etc), we have some special prices from some sponsors in this area too.

If you reach 100 posts minimum (you can view your profile by clicking on your name anywhere in the forum to see how many posts you have) then please feel free to contact one of the staff on the forum who can upgrade your account. You will need to prove you're in the trade by sending us your business details. We don't use these details for anything, just to check you're actually in the trade.

HOW TO ACCESS CCTV & ALARMS AREA

We have a hidden CCTV and Alarms area on the forum. We don't want general public to be able to find work arounds for CCTV systems and Alarms. So access is granted to those they prove they work with CCTV and Alarm systems. Contact a staff member and link them to a business listing of yours or send an invoice in that you've done, or something like that, and they'll check and let you in.

HOW TO ACCESS TRAINEE AREA OF THE FORUM

The Trainee Area of the forum is for those currently in some form of electrical education. Stick all your course details in the forum linked-to below and we'll check the details out and let you in.

In this area of the forum we have mentors and skilled electricians who give up their free time and help trainees with anything they're struggling with to help them learn how to do the job properly. We do NOT post answers to test questions. But we put a light-hearted spin on learning. You can often find some tests the mentors have come up with themselves that can help you learn how to work things out yourself etc. It's a brilliant resource for trainees.

HOW TO ACCESS DIY AREA OF THE FORUM

The DIY area of the forum is for homeowners who are doing their own DIY electrical works. Make sure you comply with all regulations if you are doing your own electrical works! The forum takes no liability for damage or loss of life if you're doing your own electrics. We have some forum members with access to this area who are willing to help the right DIYers. There are lots of laws you need to adhere to when doing DIY electrics. The forum is not the place to find out about those laws, you'll need to get the correct regulations from governing bodies for those who will have current up to date regulations. Your local council may need to be informed about your works too, and some need to come and check what you've done to make sure you've done it to specification. If you're alright with that, and agree to all that, come in the DIY area.

Contact a member of staff and ask for access and they'll let you in.
