Good manApplaud Smiley

I'm going with Elecsa. Just need to get around to it. Bit concerned about making a balls of the testing. I'm OK with installation and pretty much OK with all the regs but I just seem to lose confidence when it comes to testing even though I can do it.

The Elecsa brigade is certainly increasing.

what do u mean by not having 17th

Not having my 17th edition qualification. I have 16th so have to get my 17th by next year.

The assessment isn't too difficult. I wouldn't call it an assessment as it was more like a chat with a work mate with a bit of testing and a few questions. Can't fault them really.

I would say you need to be quite good on the testing side. Go through your installation carefully and do all the tests as per usual and you can't go wrong, as on the day your only doing what you have already done before.

New circuit. 16A Radial for one socket in the porch. Nice and easy. I had to explain the ring con tests to him. etc. I think with a smaller job you get more questions, but they weren't difficult at all.

I had all 3, except the elec at work I had printed out. Which wasn't right. They wanted the book which breaks the terms down and explains them. The bloke said if I wanted to pass today I'd have to buy one from elecsa which I did. Otherwise I'd get my own and send in proof.

I changed my CU for my initial Elecsa assessment ... but I rang LABC and explained that it was for a forthcoming assessment and they were happy to wait until afterwards when you could submit the job through your scheme ... you might want to try that ..
