sorry people, another thread about application for the nic!

so i'm finally guna go for my domestic installer, just wanted to ask a couple of questions about the assessment.

1. minor and major job, can both jobs be in my house, e.g. a loft light and a c.u. change? if not most of my work i get subbed out to me, but then the bloke that subs it out to me signs it off, so the job i've done 95% of the work, could i show him that? only trouble is that it isn't local. probs about 1hour and 15 minutes away.

2. also the jobs i show, to they have to be part p'd already, even if this is my first assessment?

any help appreciated lads, cheers. jay.

Hi Jay

Yes both jobs can be in your own house officially you should inform building control as you are not able to self certify if he asks it goes against you but not so as to constitute a fail. You could always talk to building control as its in your own home and being assessed they may not be interested


Chris

PS both jobs have to be all yours

No mate and both jobs have to be close to each other I think within 30mins of each other so where better than your own home.

Dont forget to have all your books and paperwork as well

Good luck

when i did my assessment i was told the obs had to be at 2 separate addresses no more than half an hour drive between each ;)
stupid really as 1 major and 1 minor job is all thats being assessed and the locality of each shouldnt matter :rolleyes:

The NICEIC application states within thirty minutes travelling distance of each other and work may be at your own relatives or friends property, nowhere does it state that the jobs have to be at seperate adresses?

When you ring them up and pay for your assessment then they ask you for two postcodes of where the work is, It can not be the same postcode for the minor and major work. Its OK with Elecsa to do all the work at your house.

I think its ok with any of them apart from the NIC.

Didnt even question where we were going until we went.

hi chris,
try booking an assesment without 2 postcodes then :mad: doesnt make sense as its the work thats been done thats being evaluated not the property its done on :rolleyes:

Moving to Wales shortly when I do book I will let you all know how I got on or perhaps someone else has already managed to do both jobs at one address. As you say its the work they are assessing not the address mindless bureaucracy strikes again:)
