I do feel sorry for electricians ,i didnt realise what a palavar it was until we relocated a family last month ,the guy was a sparky and theres quite a bit of tape to chomp through before your let loose on your own. And of course you have to pay (as with anything australian,lol),you haveto have the tra first then you can apply for a permit to allow you to work under instruction of a trained guy,after x amount of hours you can then apply for a licence.There are different licences for different types of electric work just to make it a little more confusing. Thankfully from experience we have now found a lot of companys to be very understanding and some are willing to take you on & assist you with the whole process. Another interesting fact is the 2 electricians who have stayed with us this last few month have both got jobs after ringing companys blind ,rather than applying to job vacancies (that all seem to state licence required,lol)..
