    Mu hubby did the skills test in April 2008. He had to travel to Accrington in Liverpool for the skill test day which started at 7:30am. He told me to advise you that it is a hard day! Some of the things he had to do were:
    A saw horse
    On a sheet of ply - construct a pitch roof, one end with gable and the other a hip with jacks.
    Rip a swn piece of timber in 1/2 with a circular saw then plain 2 sides rough sawn timber, square.
    Sharpen and grind a chisel
    Set out partitioning
    He said he had over 100 questions fired at him throughout the day, including questions about other building trades. Photos were also taken of his work.

    Hope this helps, if you need any more info let me know and i'll ask hubby!!
