Yes mate its a bloody joke. When u land your not qualified tile u. Do level three gap training that gives u a restricted license.if u want to on your own u need level four masters then a contractors license. My advice is do it all in UK before u come out I've had enough jacking it in for a sales job next week . Plumbing is not the same out here very basic. & 10 years behind.
I was lucky I landed a job but just can't stand the thought of a year or more at college,not after having all tickets & a business for seven years, sort I no that doesn't help but they have made I hard for us mear. Plumbers. Look in to I more do tickets in UK though vettessa & contact skills assessent in currie st Adelaide.
ON THE up side its bloody lovely here & there are loads of prospects to do other things like me. Sales pays more than plumbing
good luck. Jeff D.
