I had planned to do that but received bad advice. Luckily seem to have it sorted now, so just setting the ball in motion. Might still be able to go down the TRA route, I was originally trained as a HVAC engineer, 7 years, out of the business for 13 years and last 2 and a bit self employed plumbing, htg and tiling. Agent has suggested may be able to avoid general plumber route and go in on something similiar. We'll see.

Good luck with the TRA.

They must have forgotten about it! I'll try again.

Are they the changes with regard to work experience? Seems to have come from nowhere. I'll have to check where it leaves me too!

yes apparently if you have no qualifications, they are returning your tra with a refund and not processing it:

I have ONC and HNC in Building Services Engineering HVAC and my indentured apprenticeship papers. These should do the biz!

Do you reckon they will return yours?

Decided not to go down the gas route, once you get out of the town it's all oil and soild fuel. Plenty of work on the wet side (bathrooms) and the oil to keep me busy.

I just can't understand how they can change the rules at the drop of a hat!

Hi,
I am returning to the UK to do a bit of Plumbing. I have a Meisterbreif which is the same as a NVQ4. Where would you suggest to go. I prefer oil to gas. Please dont say "try the north sea, mate!!!"

Hi Simon, can you tell me if i need a licence to replace a bathroom suite or a kitchen sink in Aus. I fit kitchen and bathrooms for a living in the U.K, doing all the pipe work to replace from the old to the new, basically i do a complete bathroom or kitchen including the tiling. Any info would be greatful.

Thanks Andy
