    I called stroma and they were fine with me joining their scheme with my experience and were helpful. I however, received a list of things I need to send them and all was as expected, except for a CV. I never had to supply a CV when I was a member of NICEIC and haven't even got a CV and have no desire to write one.

    Does anyone know why they would require a CV because I am not applying to work for them?

    Probably to see what kind of Electrical experience you have. Why are you reluctant to supply a CV? I have one and I have been retired for 3 years, not rocket science, plenty of blank CV templates on the net, or have you something to hide? :):p:oops::rolleyes:

    You weren't a plumber were you ?

    Yes, as Pete said it's just to check about your history and relevant work experience. Mine wasn't very expansive, just a summary of relevant experience really.

    Before I joined Stroma they sent me a list of requirements which included:


    · A CV listing 2 years + experience

    All I said was that I had been with Elecsa for 5 years!

    The technical competency framework for competent persons schemes states you have to have two years relevant experience they are just doing what everyone else should be!

    I am more than happy to provide a written summary of my experience which I told them I had when I called them, which is different to providing a CV.

    It is naive to believe that if someone had something to hide that would prevent them from submitting a CV.

    I haven't ever been a plumber and I don't have anything to hide because I'm an all round Nicebloke.

    Just put your name an address on a word document and give a time period of more than 2 years to show you've been a spark....... that should get a tick in their "box"!

    I was registered with the NICEIC for 2 years so that will do.

    I am not retired and have better things to do with my days than writing a lot of nonsense and calling it a CV.

    You'll have to tell them your hobbies and favorite pass-times.

    Don't join if you feel that strongly about it, bloody liberty if you ask me for someone who is supposed to be checking and ensuring competence to actually do it!:)

    Didn't realise that a CV proves a person's competence.

    Must admit I wouldn't want to do it, the assessment is for that.

    Can't see creating a decent CV as a lot of nonsense, most intelligent people have one, makes good sense for when someone asks for one

    Well I'm not one of the intelligent ones Pete. I've never had one in my life.

    Most intelligent people probably would do a CV if they were applying for a job, but I am not applying for a job.

    I applied and was asked for the same thing ... I think they heard my sharp intake of breath ... and helpfully said "we aren't English teachers, it's just something we put on file". So I wrote a page (dot points) of relevant stuff and emailed it to them. Never heard a word back, thankfully.

    And there is me thinking they just want your money.? Tell them to get in touch with the NIC for a reference.

    Look, its only STROMA. They want your money, I mean they really want your money. Just tell em you do not have a CV.

    Or, send them a copy of your NICEIC membership certificate.

    Sorry, Dave. i see that's more or less what you said!
