Appy(Craig),
Congratulations on getting your Trade Cert, mate!.
Practicing Licence is a mere formality, from here in, mate!.
P.S: If you need a hand with filling in Certificates of Compliance, just give us a yell.
The format of the COC's has changed, in the last 6 months, where you are required to give actual test results on the form itself, but, provided that you are pretty much up with the play, you can't go wrong really!. [Linked Image]

Congratulations.

I noticed you mentioned PLCs. Here's a PLC-related site:

Appy,
Welcome to the endless screed of paperwork!.
What sort of work do you normally do?.
I see that your ECN profile(Occupation) has been updated to Sparky, wear that with pride, mate, you've earned it! [Linked Image]
TG, a PLC is an abbreviation for a Practising Licence, it looks like a credit card, hence Appy's comment on the blue and yellow card.
When I first got one of these, owing to an admin fault, I was sent the wrong card, I had an Inspectors Licence, so back it went!. [Linked Image]

I would normally be seen in construction (my favourite) or Renovations i really like , my pet hate is new houses. I dont mind fault finding on houses, with the crew i work with there is quite a bit of that.
The site im on has another 10 months, after that who knows.

Appy,
Thanks for the quick reply, mate!. [Linked Image]
New housing is not one of my favourites either, it's more or less for RSB electricians, these days, what with the margins being so small. [Linked Image]
Give me a Fault on a HV line or a place without power, and I am in my element, I only got into this whole deal to HELP people.
BTW Appy, don't become a Liney, mate, it's OK if you don't mind living on so little sleep. [Linked Image]
As an aside, how much did the PLC cost?.
Just wondering?. [Linked Image]
