Greetings all. Just signed up & making a start cracking off my 6 posts. Apologies if this is in the wrong area I am sure someone will put me straight. I have recently re-trained after 22 years in the RAF and am starting out on my own as a sole trader. Despite having done all the training and gained my Quals I am well aware that I have a lot to learn from you experienced sparks out there and have started out on a steep curve. I will need all the help i can get so hope you guys don't mind answering some stupid questions as i'm sure I will have many. It has always been my policy in life to ask rather than blunder on for fear of looking stupid, I would rather suffer the ridicule to ensure I get things right so I suppose this is a plea for patience and any support you guys can offer as I start out on this new career.

Cheers in advance

Welcome aboard, i commend your enthusiasm but with zero experience in domestic etc (i assume) in your case i would be inclined to get a few years experience with a company just to get your bearings.....its fine understanding and having a good grasp of regulations but been able to pull a office and house apart to get the install done in itself is a task that requires background knowledge.


Just a suggestion but if your confident in your skills and knowledge then all the best and we look forward to assisting you where we can.

Haha You must be mad.

Seriously though, welcome aboard. Most will help rather than ridicule:)

Thanks everyone I appreciate the welcome, and thanks too to Darkwood for the wise words. Trust me I have told myself the same probably ten times a day and the little voice is still telling me to get a job at Tesco! But it's now or never for me and I feel like i'm doing something I enjoy and have a real interest in for the 1st time in ages so i'm in for a penny...

Got my site assessment with ELECSA coming up on the 28th of this month so I will have a good idea soon if I am anywhere near ready. I will let you know how it goes.

Cheers again
