Good evening all, I have been browsing the forums for a while and think its time to introduce myself. I am 48 years old, time served electrician, JIB technician, qualified ONC in electrical engineering, 16th edition and C&G 2391 certified. Since completing my apprenticeship i have worked in electrical contracting (cards in) on projects around the country covering multiple industry and commercial sectors. I am currently a project manager running data installation projects in London, it pays the bills and and I am still with the same company (25 years service award this year). However, the electrical work is drying up, margins are too low.
I am under threat of redundancy and was thinking of trying my hand in the domestic / small commercial market. I am up to date with regs and have experience from single dwellings to petro-chem installations.I will be booking 17th as soon as I have time at home. Any advice from the forum will be appreciated.

Regards
 

Dan

I'm not a sparky but I know a couple ;-)

Welcome to the forum, I hope your job stays in place, changing when forced is always difficult and in these times can be nigh on impossible.
You will need to get your 17th qualification, but if you are up to date with the regs then you should be able to just take the exam only.
