Your English is fine, but just FYI, calling people you don't know 'dear' isn't seen an expression of affection or respect in the UK, in fact it's seen as the opposite by most. So just a heads up really, best not to use it unless it actually is on a letter with a name after it!

HTH, good luck with your move.

christmasoompa,

thanks for your reply, i am from India and I don't have much knowledge of UK English.

In my last post i had apologized regarding the same.

Regarding my language skills compared to UK people not so good but my IELTS score is 7, i don't think it will be obstacle for my visa process.

Really i didn't expected these type of discussions. in my first post i had clearly mentioned that any one who had attended practical exam from Mumbai, India.

From there every discussion went in wrong direction.

small suggestion from my side if you really want to help people please ignore their language mistakes because people come here seeking some help from different countries and culture.

people visit this forum seeking some help and i don't want to discourage them.

I am sorry for having taken your precious time.

Hi guys, I need to book my Australian skills assessment practical with futureskills in Ealing Broadway. I was wondering if anyone has done this exam there in the last year or so and if so, do you have any tips. Is the practical exam the same no matter where you do it in the world or would say it differs again. Also, Im assuming you need to take your own tools and equipment, is that correct or do you have to use what they supply you with? Thanks

The practical is set and will ne the same wherever you take it. It should be take your own tools but be careful if flying - they will have to go as checked baggage.

You could check out the Vetassess info sheets for safe isolation - disconnect/reconnect

Dear friends,

I am about to sit my practical assessment for electrician in Melbourne with Vetassess.

Can anyone who took the test in Melbourne kindly clear some of my doubts.

1. For disconnection , which appliance was given? Single phase motor or three phase

2. What stuff was to be connected for the distribution board and do we have to use different RCDS for power and light? I have very less experience in installation. Do we get T joints for connecting conduits?

3. was the starter star delta or DOL ?

Any prompt reply will be really appreciated as sitting exam in couple of days

Not done the test recently but not aware of any changes.

The disconnect was a three phase pump motor.

Board for domestic - yes you need separate RCD's for power and lighting. Can't remember joints, but there was a dog-leg or offset bend to be done in a short run - sizes all given, PVC conduit.

Starter is DOL.

THANKS MATE FOR THE PROMPT REPLY...

CAN WE USE RCD COMBINATIONS OR SIMPLE RCDS .. AND HOW TO SELECT THE CABLE ... I KNOW THAT FOR POWER IT SHOULD BE 2.5 AND FOR LIGHT 1.5 ...
MINIMUM RCD IS 40 AMPS IN AUSTRALIA SO WHAT SIZE THE MAIN BREAKER SHOULD BE AD THE CONDUCTOR SIZE?

AND DO WE HAVE TO DO THE BONDING EARTH

Please do not shout at me (all capitals is shouting )

You use what is available - you'll have a selection to choose from. Minimum RCD is not 40 amps - not sure where you got that from?

Cable sizes were specified I think, but select a suitable size for the load - not all loads are 10A socket outlets or lighting. Can't remember if we had a book to help or if I took mine.
