Hi all sorry for not responding earlier (BEVS) didn't get the name of the guy i spoke to, the wife answered the phone and then shoved it in me hand when she realised it was New Zealand calling !! Doh ! they just asked about the stuff i had put on the forms i had downloaded and sent back.they asked about all aspects of plumbing and leadwork etc. it was very weird cos they were asking about things that went out in the dark ages in the the U K ..ie two pipe soil stack systems!! which can still be seen around on old buildings but were not really used even when i started my plumbing career 28 years ago ,and also the fact that most roofing contractors have now taken over the lead work for roofs and flashings etc , they also asked if i laid water mains but again had to tell them that most water mains now days are taken up to the house and meter box's fitted to the external walls of the building . and that they were allways and still are in most cases by the groundworkers so in all they haven't moved the questions up to date that would be normal practice in the UK now but asking about things that are 20/30 years in the past ?saying all that they may ask questions that relate to your age you put on the form cos i can def say that we dont even teach the old ways anymore so anyone under 35 wouldnt have a clue what to say !sorry this has gone on for ages but if you need any more info just post it .
cheers colin n terri x
