The holiday is officially over :(

    Recommended Posts

    Well should be happy but after a day at PEER collage all day today I now have a job and start tomorrow :(

     

    Wife is not making it any better as she wont be looking for work until July and is enjoying reminding me of the fact.

     

    Happy but unhappy, Chris.

    Hey thats great news. Where are you starting work?

     

    Just with a small electrical company on domestic & commercial but it's a start and a foot in the door. Hopefully will be licensed in a few weeks (unless I screw up the regs course) and will then have more options.

     

    Chris.

    No, just another very sensible woman. The world would implode if we left you blokes to just get on with things, tsk :biglaugh:

    In truth Ian i cannot believe this country has the nerve to not just give sparkies a license after checking our UK qualifications. The 'standard' is shocking (sorry about the pun).

     

    But as the saying goes, when in Rome !!!!!

     

    Certainly a lot easier here to install so I will learn to adapt and a 3oclock finish can't be bad :)

    Set a precedence, poms sit at the back like we used to in school.

     

    Smart ones at the back, dummies to the front :wideeyed:

     

    Some of the smaller companies are like that and they get by, now idea how, friends of friends usually.

    Make sure a C.o.C is done for any jobs that have a connection made to a power source, you cannot sign it yet though:policeman:

     

    3pm finish is about right for me, for my lunch :sad:

    My husband sent his ARTC off and they have emailed saying the will not process it until we are in oz. We have to contact them when we arrive and send them proof of address and passport stamp. Does he enrol with PEER once his ARTC is complete?

    Hi, yeah I heard they did this sometime last year. I did mine in June of last year and got assessed so it must have been some time after that. It must be annoying as you would rather not wait when you get here.
