In short unless you have the certs with the years served on the job and can prove us such then you will be wasting your money. Hope this helps.

      Thanks for the advice, the world of Personal Injury is in melt down, once the ban on referral fees is introduced next April, along with the introduction of ABS's (Tesco's Law) I have just about enough of all the back stabbing, money orintated Claimant style mavricks in UK Law..... I've seen the 6 weeks cousres you indicate and I am astonished that anyone can even gain any form of comprehesion of the world of electrics from such............... I was about to embark on the C&G Level three course with a view of completing this within 15 - 18 months................. I appreciate that whilst thats a relativly short period of time, I know my abilities.

      Not to worry, it seems that I would have to use my ILEX qualifications to better use in Adelaide and scrap any idea of a career change......... Its been beneficial having your input guys thanks.................

      It's not easy to get your trade recognized here and that's why they don't recognize the silly short courses but want the level 3 with the time served as well. They are doing the right thing making sure they get qualified tradesmen. A good thing in my opinion.
