Default vettassess practical assessment - Electrician

Hello All,

Has any sparkies done the Vetassess practical assessment?
I have just passed the first stage and am booked in for the April assessment but just wondered if anyone could give any advise on what to expect as I've been doing primarily domestic installations on new builds for the last 16 years and need to know what to polish up on!

Many Thanks

congrats on passing the first stage.

i dont think anyone reallt knows about the practical as its quite new

i am going to the april practical myself and im a little worried, but i cant see it being any harder than the AM2 practical test,

what does concern me ie the technical interview, i get quite nervous at interviews.

im sure it wont be an interigation though

any way good luck and will probably see you down there

A certified piece of evidence is a copy of the original and the copy must be signed by someone in a position to do so, solicitor / police officer / accountant / Bank officer / JP Etc. Some charge some dont !!

thats correct

photocopy your orignals and have them certified the following is from the vetassess website

all documents must be certified as a true copy of the original by a person who is authorised to certify documents in your country.
Each copy of the document must be certified separately and must show clearly:

* the words "certified true copy of the original"
* the original signature of the certifying officer
* the name and address or provider/registration number (where appropriate) of the certifying officer legibly printed below the signature so that VETASSESS can contact the certifying officer if necessary.


i had a neighbour who is a retired senior police office who signed mine

it cost me a bottle of wine

hope this helps

Hi, im also in the same position. Also on the assessment in April. I to mainly do domestic work but have done quite a bit in the past on industrial but nothing to do with DOL Starters. Having seen the wiring diagrams they are nothing spectacular.
