for an electrician without that A-licence you can't work unsupervised so they don't take you on as easily or pay less...
we've been told it's very hard to get a job before hand although there is lots out there.
but understandably an employer wants to see you first ;)
so we intend to send out lots of cv's once we actually have a date for our flights which we can tell the employers!!
