Hi Tony,
Well when you pass the 2330 get a couple of jobs done & use them for assessment into one of the part P scheme operators (niceic, nappit & others), might be worth while contacting local sparks to see if they want a hand (easy on the 4 days off unless your'e community firesafety ;)), that way you'll get some hands on experience aswell, but if you're like me you'll be in demand by uncle tom cobbley & all round stations already.
Then get on the C&G 2391 test/inspection.
Do good work dont rip off customers & word of mouth will be the best form of advertising & work is sure to follow, it has for me I now in my 4th year as a sole trader & have more than enough to keep me well busy.
Bottom line if it's something you want to do get out there & do it mate :D. A bit pricey starting up but once you get the tools they start paying for themselves.
