Another lateish (41) starter who wants to retrain as a domestic installer.

I am currently working in the telecoms industry but am frustrated with the way the firm is managed and the future of it (have heard rumors of redundancies so I want to get something sorted before its gets too late) etc.

I have 20 years experience working in both residential and business premises in various roles - installation of telephone/structured wiring. I used to test xDSL modems DSLAMs (ADSL, SDSL, VDSL exchange equipment) and am currently a wireless lan surveyor.

I started as an electricians apprentice when I left school but never finished - what a muppet :eek:. I am looking to do one of the intensive courses just to get the relevant qualifications and then start up on my own as a domestic installer. If I do get made redundant I will have a bit of money to pay the bills until I get sorted. I know that some people frown upon these courses but they are the only way people of my age can get qualified without spending 3 years at college (mortgages to pay etc). I have a couple of mates who work in the building trade who have said they will give me some work etc so I can get practical experience that way, I am not exactly new to running cables and knowing how to behave in other peoples houses :D

I would also like to get involved with the installation of home AV kit etc so any pointers about that area would be helpful.

I know this intro is going on a bit so I am off to make a brew now but thanks for taking the time to read this and answer any numpty questions I may have,

Cheers,

Graham
