Hi guys just after some general advice, if that's ok?? Mulling some options over... I am 44, worked the last 25yrs for one of the big six suppliers, ten in the office, with the last 15 of those out fitting electric meters, so I have some background, and built up some good knowledge and experience of the industry over the years. There is talk of voluntary redundancies in the offing, with numbers of 12-18mths pay to go, being banded around... I am wondering if it comes to pass whether to stick it out here, or take it up, and if so on what to do then. One option is, I would like to find out how much is involved to get qualified as an electrician?? I would have cash to live off and pay up front for full time courses! I have done some googling but every site offers differing advice on what courses to do? Can anyone confirm which I would need to get going? Is it as simple as doing the courses and then I could apply for jobs, or is there more to it than that?? And could I do any work for myself from that point or is more involved to get to that stage?? Thanks in advance for any input!!
