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!.

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!
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!.

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!.
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.
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.
As an aside, how much did the PLC cost?.
Just wondering?.
