Hi, my friends asked me to work with him on anew venture. He has some commercial contract offers and we discussed setting up a business together to work on them. Can anyone advise on the need for being a Qualified Supervisor? Currently neither of us are registered as approved contractors but have the qualifications for that. When I rang Niceic they said the only thing I'm missing is full a nvq qualification which I'm in the process of completing a 2356-99 which will probably be about 6 months. Without that what would anyone advise about us doing commercial work? Go for approved contractor? Wait till I can get QS or is there another way? Thanks. We both have all the other qualifications except full NVQ and he has no AM2 at the minute either.
