Default Hi from Lincoln

Hello chaps,found this site whilst browsing the net,this is my last day off after three weeks,i had two slipped discs,a little reminder NOT to pull a 240mm 4c on your own off the cable jacks ha ha.

Well what can i say,i'm an old timer (yes,age doesn't stop us doing stupid things like above ),apprentice served with the central electricity generating board in the southwest of england.

I now work for a small company doing installation/maint at a local recycling plant,i also get lumbered with the inspection and testing having C&G 2391.

Its nice to find a site for sparks.

Well done lads.keep up the good work

Chris

Welcome to the site.

Could you explain what "C&G 2391" is for us that do not know?

Hello John,thanks for the welcome.

Sorry about the abbreviations,i should have been a little clearer.

C&G 2391 is the name or title given to the inspection and testing course most UK electricians have to take now to be a recognised tradesman with the jib (Joint Industry Board ) its a union for electricians.

C&G stands for City and Guilds. the 2391 is just the course number.

Well it all used to be City and Guilds ! Its now NVQS in its place.

Regards

Chris

Thanks for the lesson.

But you created another. Now what is NVQS ?

Sorry about all the questions but it took me a week to find out what a RCD was.

Carry On!
