But if someone can read up / study / understand how to wire a plug, why shouldn't they? I have known people with all the right credential that I wouldnt trust to wire a plug yet others that have required a house perfectly (IMHO) but are not qualified sparkies.there's bad tradespeople in all walks of life, and this in turn leads to people wanting to do works themselves. Personally, I think no one should be able to trade as anything unless they can demonstrate proper training. If you can't have confidence in employing tradespeople, then why wouldn't you DiY. As it currently stands a hairdresser can buy a van and write sparky on the side and sell his services as an electrician. Likewise, I could decide to be a hairdresser tomorrow - that would definetly end badly
Are you suggesting that you shouldnt be able to replace a tap washer, tighten a screw in a door hinge, paint a ceiling etc unless youre a plumber, joiner, painter & decorator respectively? Where do you draw the line?
