Think you can as long as you go through LABC for notifiable work, most governing bodies sell generic certs.

hi, you may well proove compotence with labc but there still gonna want the fee off you. thats who whole point of going with nic, napit etc.
and if they dont want a fee which i would be very suprised about, then i for one would be very annoyed!

but yeah or OP post, you can do whatever work you like. if its notifiable then obviouly you will need to pay labc. dont think you will need to pay for pir's mind, only actual "work done" is what you pay labc for.

hope that helps

if your not with a scheme provider then you have to pay labc fees for whatever jobs you do that are notifiable that is.
