    Hello everyone!

    My name's Danny. I am currently an Avionics Technician, but because of all the recent cuts my jobs currently on the line :sad_smile:

    I've been training as an Electrician as a fall back in case I find myself out of a job. I'm changing trades slightly because ulitmately I want to become a Firefighter (as this has always been my dream job :blush5: ) but having failed to get in full-time 13 times so far I'm taking a realistic approach to my career and want to adapt my trade skills, try a new challenge (I've found that aircraft work isn't particularly rewarding), gain experience, and then look at the possiblity of becoming a part-time Firefighter in my own time. Having said that I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to get into the electrical trade for the wrong reasons - I will give 100% in whatever job I do even if it's stacking shelves in tesco!! I've always been fasinated in how things work and that's why I would like to continue working with electrical systems.

    So far I've passed a Domestic Electrical Installation course and the 17th Edition Wiring Regs as well as the ECS Health and Safety Exam. I also took the 2391 Inspection and Testing exam and found out today that I passed the practical but failed the theory by 2% :sad3:

    I've come on here for some advice on several things really. Firstly I have been asked by a friend about a problem and I want to make sure I've worked out a solution properly (I will be posting that elsewhere) but also about job options, the 2391 exam, other qualifications worthwhile gaining and I was curious if there any Retained Firefighters who are Electricians in their normal job?

    Thanks for your time reading my drivel!

    Welcome. I expect that you've found that a technical background helps with the electrical courses. Bad news about the 2391; it's worth having (or, as the C&G quals are changing, whatever the latest equivalent is).

    What part of the country are you?
