think it's totally different disciplines involved.
Your right a wireman's course is very different to an electricians course, and i think also rated in voltage bands. Not sure, but i think the base line was LV to 11KV... But there are a few guy's here that work for DNO's etc so they will know better than i...

There's not much call for PATesting on 11kv.:cheesy:

And a consumer unit on 133kv is going to need a good earth bond to the water main.:devilish:

I'd guess that more than 50% of training is about Safe Systems of Working.
 
They'll certanily have a good electrical background or I'd hope so anyway
