Maybe better to contact NICEIC direct to see what they would require you to have if that is the scheme that you would prefer to join.

They will most definately expect you to gain the addition qualifications that you are missing i.e. 17th Edition and 2391 if you are looking to test and also to work as a full scope member in domestic, industrial & commercial.

Your pal at the council should be able to advise you of the best route to notify work outside of membership to the NICEIC or when you are ready to join the NICEIC you maybe able to use a couple of the jobs you have completed for your assessment from them and certify the jobs once accepted as a member?

Can't really comment too much on the NICEIC as I am not a member of their scheme but I hope this helps!

Good luck!

Warren
