Hi folks

If I took the poll at the top of the forum, I'd have to put myself down as a non-sparky, but I will be starting training to become one in the autumn. So you might say I have potential ;) (See what I'm doing there? Heard it a million times?).

Anyway hello!

Hello and welcome to THE BESTEST AND FRIENDLIEST electrical forum in the world

Thanks for the replies guys. Yes - you do seem to be super-friendly here! I stumbled on this forum yesterday when I was trying to get some info on a brand of electric storage heaters. I'm glad I came here, as it will be good to get to know people already working in the field while I'm still a student. (I'm a student again at 49 years old :0)

I've been in the music industry all my life, but it's an industry in its death throws - always chasing after a bigger share of an ever-decreasing pie. Taking its customers to court, etc. I got fed up with the way my job had changed over time also, and in the end decided I had to get out to stay sane.

In the long run, I want to be involved in the renewable energy business, which has got to be an expanding industry over the next twenty years. My course starting in September (training to become and electrician) is the first step.

Thanks for the link to the student and learning zone Admin (you good-lookin' skeleton you).

Thatnks WarrenG; I think I'll be back here for advice as the terms go by. Maybe I'll even learn enough to give advice by the end, hehe.

OK, a few months into my course, and I get the 'bonding' pun. ;\

Been recovering my 'O' level maths from the dusty vaults of my memory, and am pleased with my progress in the course so far. When I was a kid, you could tell me something once and it was usually in there permanently. Now, I'm finding that I have to do constant revision to make things stick. But I'm pleased that I am understanding things as we go along, and with the extra effort, it is all sticking.

Anyway, I'll probably be around more often now that I've got a bit of the course under my belt!

Hi Magaohm7

I'm definitely enjoying learning - both the theory and the 'hand skills'. I feel I'm being stretched for the first time in years - and it feels good.

Getting that practical experience is the biggest deal at the moment. I'd identify that as my weak spot. It's one thing to do something in the college workshop - totally another thing to do it in the real world.
