Just found this site which looks like it has some helpful folks on board. I've been self employed in IT & audio systems for more years than I care to remember so I decided I needed to get out from behind the desk. Got a bundle of electrical quals now and looking to do more as I can afford them. It seems you can never run out of qualifications to collect in this industry!

There's more to life than money.

I got out of the software industry after 20+ years and I don't regret it. This is far more satisfying.

And, welcome to the forums @Roscmo

Is there? As far as I can see without money life is pretty much pointless and rather short.
You are such a happy guy who never reads a post and warps it out of context.. :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

Welcome to another ex-IT spark,
"collecting qualifications" has become an art form in IT, but "electrickery" is getting that way (if it wasn't already) with the progression and then amendments and new releases every few years ....

9 hours behind a computer all day is a tough life. I used to do it also in RF/mobile comms design. Expect to get fitter and sharper, but have loads less money - And if you are on your own, you never get to stop work.
