sorry shakey didnt mean to exclude anyone, how have you been "winging it" then. thought there had to be some form of qualification to work as spark. most proffesions seem to police themselves in this way. perhaps you have bs 7517 or similar? what does everyone else have?:(

Oh my God don't get our old pal Shakey started!!!!!



:p
 
i'll finish this one, taken from this book "pratical guide to inspection, testing and certification of electrical installations" very decent book anyway, thought i'd quote the book title before i get told off. here :

"currently, there is no requirement for any person carrying out electrical work in a domestic environment to be quailfied in any way. The condition is that they must be competent; in other words, they must be in possession of appropriate technical knowledge or experience to enable them to carry out the work safely

There are Part p Courses being provided by many training bodies, although it is not a requirement that you attend one of these courses or any other course which is being offered. However, it is impossible to become an electrician in 5 days"


That ones for u shakey, so you don't bite sum1's head off, and my I need to get my post count up, cus cirrus is doubling me, although I could wack a zero on the end of mine :)

regards

good quote Luke (I am familiar with the book)

and considering the domestic market is MORE regulated that commercial/industrial because of Part P, well.....I am sure you can work it out:p

ok 25,000

no

i mean 50,000

who knows, and what context is the question being asked?

and why have you narrowed it down to such a particular question level ?

And what about people who are qualifeied but currently 'out of trade', i.e. unemployed, retired, pushing trolleys in tesco's car park

the question, as it was presented, is meaningless:eek:
