Not going to get you anywhere!
to get Part P registered takes 3years,you must get NVQ level 3, electrical inst. plus C&G 2391 inspection & test, you must register with one of the scheme operators which costs several hundred ££££££££
Plus be in posession of latest regs £47., on site guide, £24. , guidance notes 1,3,7 £20. each
testmeters for I.R, loop, RCD, cont. tests all calibrated, etc,
They wonder why there is a shortage of sparkies, & why we charge so much!
Hope you're good at math formulea, and legalese reading......
Good Luck I've been in game since 1963 & can't wait to retire! Regards SPARX
