Hi All,
I need some advice........please don’t rip me to bits!!!.
I’m a newly qualified domestic installer, been in the electrical game for 30 years as an appliance engineer so have some background knowledge.
I want to register with one of the schemes, probably nic or Stroma however, I haven’t done any notifiable jobs yet so my plan is, as I’ve just moved house, as the CU is seriously out of date, I’ll fit a new board and use that as my assessment job.
This is where I’m struggling, my “house” is a 300 year old stone cottage, bare stone wall, exposed beam ceilings etc. All cabling is clipped direct and exposed.....no trunking due to the rough nature of the walls. No RCD protection, no bonding.......the list goes on!!! My plan is to update what I can....reasonably I.e. adding bonding, new board, RCD protection to all circuits, I’m just concerned that the rest of the wiring is so out of date(old colours, premature collapse etc) that there is no way I’ll get passed? Any advice or opinions gratefully received!!!
