    Electrician moving over

    Hi everyone I’m just after some advice really. Not really sure what to expect. But I’ve been thinking about trying to get into doing more access control, cctv, intruder alarms and possibly fire ? I’ve done a fair bit of installation work but not much in the way of programming or commissioning so...

    Cards in jobs

    I’ve been having a scan at the cards in jobs just to see what’s on offer and the rates seem low to me. What’s everyone else’s thoughts? I’m CIS myself. Last time I was cards in was nearly 5 years ago and I was on around £17 back then with a van but the rates don’t seem to have gone up much. I...

    Finding work

    The AM2 is part of the NVQ. You have to do the Am2 and an evidence based portfolio. This is the issue a lot of older guys have. Because they haven’t done the portfolio or the Am2 (NVQ) they can’t get a gold card

    Tick sheet and observations on large scale?

    I’ve tried that but when I delete the extra item it’s added from the part 5 list it also removes it from the tick sheet

    Tick sheet and observations on large scale?

    Hi guys I have a question. I’m finishing up the write up for a very large eicr. I wrote all of my observations down in part 5 of the report before the tick sheet. It was easier to do this as I’m going around testing and doing visuals. Because there are so many observations noted down, I can’t...

    Do you have any suggestions as to how I fight my case with these idiots I work for? Like you say all they care about is the numbers of circuits. Not doing an accurate report

    What to do after college?

    Get your driving license. Get on the books with a good firm who does big jobs. Get as much experience as you can. Then when your going out doing jobs by yourself further down the line you will know when your confidence and knowledge is in a good place. When that day comes go as a Subby. I...

    I totally agree. An EICR is meant to ensure the electrical installation is safe to remain in operation. It’s not possible to determine this by racing around trying to do 30 circuits per day. Even if you do 12 hour days you would be pushing it. They do not take into account the observation side...

    That’s what I am doing. I’m not racing round like a nutter and rushing it. I have been doing that to a degree but after realising it’s not the way to go, I’ve took a step back now and assessed how to move forward.

    To be honest 25 is a push but if the circuits are easy to find it’s easier to achieve. 20 is probably more realistic

    Currently doing eicrs is offices and workshops. Massive place. I’m quite conscientious and do a thorough inspection. I’m being asked to do 30 to 40 circuits per day. Plus do the full write up on the tablet including logging the observations and coding them etc. they are even asking for a...

    Work trousers

    Can anyone recommend a pair of holster pocket trousers that are not super tight in the legs? All the ones I order seem to be tight in the legs. I used to buy snickers but they are becoming very pricey. Thanks in advance
