if its your first dont be worried at all, the guys from Napit are really good, sound and not out to make you feel incompetant, give you lots of advice and anything you are missing or dont know they will give you web addresses for downloads and sensible advice to get you upto speed

prove you can work safely and can test to a reasonable standard and your good to go

so dont lose sleep over it.

Hello DBrennen..

This topic or similar has been discussed a few times on other threads & post....

If you put "Assessment" or "Napit" or "NICEIC" or similar into the search forum feature..

you should be able to find some...

e.g. this one...

http://www.talk.electricianforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1578&highlight=assessment

Although it refers to NIC.. as far as I know the basic nuts and bolts of assessment are the same whoever you are with! ;)

Remember.. As BS said above...

Most assessors are actually quite nice guys.. they want to have you as their customer.. You are the one who is paying them.. and you could go elsewhere if you wanted!

so they will normally help as much as they can.. unless you prove to be a complete and utter no hoper!! :p :( :^O :^O

From my experience with all my NIC inspections...

when you mention a new radial circuit... which has nice easy accessible ends..

e.g. cooker / socket / boiler spur?

They often said oh great! we will use that circuit to do some dead & live tests, R1+R2, ins res, Zs, etc...

tend to prefer it to messing around with a ring cct!

Also the NIC guys general do two assessments per day...

so they don't want to be hanging around to long..

make sure all your documentation is all ready and quickly accessible.

I recently got myself one of those fat case sort of things that rep's have

http://www.staples.co.uk/ENG/Catalog/cat_sku.asp?CatIds=%2C&webid=2292ST&affixedcode=WW

good to keep all the regs books, Part P doc, EAWR, etc.. for assessments, everything in one place! ;)

Just a thought - I got ripped off on Professional Indemnity insurance. Napit do a discounted scheme - check out the website. Also make sure you look at the checklist they give you. I paid extra to get the memorandum on electricity at work act delivered on time as I reacted late!. Part P can be downloaded and printed. Finally - the NAPIT guy gave me some nifty software for MWC, EIC and PIR's. I'd spent a week getting the IET forms in word/excel. Not exactly a waste of time but...
