    Hi

     

    Haven't been on the test as of yet only just going to start process. How much does it cost? and did you enrol yourself or did an agent do it for you? As I am not sure if to the visa myself or use an agent. Anyway good luck with it and let me know what to expect.

     

    Regards

     

    Dean:huh:

    Hi,

     

    Briefly it was a raking corner with a pier, corbelled out with a brick on edge capping. Then there's a loads of questions about bricklaying. It was all pretty relaxed. I put it in a lot more detail on PomsinOz so you can also search there, just haven't got time to do it again at mo as it's a bit hectic here.

    Hopefully my Oh will be on it too. Have been told to proceed to level 2 he just needs to pay basically! Shame its in London we had been told he would be able to do it in the North West where we live!?

    Anyway he is very nervous and has put a lot of pressure on himself, just wish I could take some of it off him but thats the way it is I guess.

    Hello, i did mine in August in Preston, its ok once you get over the nerves general setting out and building to what is on the drawing, got it done in plenty of time so just tell him to get his head down and relax, if its the same bloke we had he's a bricklayer and they fly him in from Melbourne but he's ok and easy going. He won't tell you wether you passed or not though i got a text about 10 days later at 3 in morning and then an email, best feeling i had for ages.

    Good luck

    Hi Dean,

     

    I finished bricklaying at Christmas. January is always quiet but there seems to be plenty on, especially in the north. Don't know about Victor though.
