well my problem is this.
i been an electrician for 12 years, i`ve worked on raf bases,navy bases, hospitals, schools,new builds, re wires, and looked after winchester prison for 6 months, all for the firm i did my apprenticeship with.

since then i subbied for another firm, then went on the cards mainly doing new builds and rewires etc.

when i was an apprentice i was a young lad, doing what young lads do!!

i`m now been made redundant and want to go out on my own, problem is i have no proof of qualifacations!

possibly 2660, but even so you prob best to do 17th edition and then register with part p scheme and that should cover you :)

would just call up gity and guilds and ask them for copies of the certificates you passed. Will probably have to pay for duplicates but i'm sure they have everything on record or else how could they ever cross-reference whether someone was legit or not.

Replacements are available , however, you will need to know course numbers and year that you sat the exam.

City & Guilds charge £35 a certificate, BUT they do not guarantee a result.

As far as im aware, they do not cross reference anyone for being legit. They want your money!:D

12 years ago would be 2360 pts 1 & 2 AM1 and AM2 (i think).

To do the 17th update course you will need proof of your 2360 etc.

To do the 3/5 day 17th edition course, then no quals are required.

When you have this update, you can join any of the 5 schemes.

You will need a whole host of stuff including calibrated test equip, PL insuarnce, various books etc etc.

Best do one thing at a time and sort your quals!
