    If a circuit has two lights, which incorporates two switches, how many points do you put down?

    I always thought it was 4 but my colleague today told me it was two because you only have two lights.

    2 points as in no. of points served on a schedule of test results, but 4 points when you are pricing an install at price per point.

    This one always seems to cause confusion with apprentices and novices. A double (or even a triple) socket outlet is only ONE point of utilisation. Similarly if you have chandelier with 20 lamps it's still only ONE point of utilisation.

    45-50 per point is about normal these days. but more for cookers /showers etc. all depends on the accessories as well. if cust. wants metal accs. then obviously allow for extra cost.
