    I have the feeling this is a trick question. How
    about you tell me if it is a requirement when there
    is 50mm on top and 50mm below the cable? ;)

    Just wondered yes or no..thats all.

    Never seen any spark use them. Don't think there is a requirement when following the 50mm rule, am I right or wrong on that?

    Do you use them, sir?

    Thanks Ant..never use to if the 50mm rule could be met however..75mm screws..this and that. They are not very expensive and as I am in the process of doing my house up at the moment,might just think about using them..I suppose it is keeping in with the spirit of things. As a matter of interest you should see what happens when you plumb pipes in..2 x 22mm in a notch etc..accepted practice..within the building regs? who knows.

    Well sir, the regs do allow notching. I guess it is the plumber/electrician who should be looking after his/her services.

    Out of interest, would those plates not have an effect on the levelling of the boards?

    Now that is a good question..attention to detail..brilliant. It is a bit long winded but put the plate on the joist and pencil around it. Then pare out with a chisel..hey presto flush..job done properly.

    ant... why do you abuse qualified sparkys about there advice when you dont have your level 3 or your 2391? shouldnt it be in your interest to step back and listen to there points of view...

    Cos I'm quoting 2381, which I have. :)

    I'm not abusing, but I'll bite back at the abuse I recieve.

    Did you know the NICEIC will take people on without 2391?

    JIB grading says someone qualified to 2381 is an electrician. 2391 makes you approved electrician. There are different gradings along the way. The level 3 is an advanced step to get the gold card, along with 2391.
     
  11. Do you work as an electrician ant?????

    Doubt it more like Adam Ant with this thread. All words and no learning. Sorry Ant but a lot has been said which in a nutshell is the same answer just you wont accept whats been said.

    I would suggest that the JIB also need proof of a formal training i.e. an apprenticeship and not a 4 day wonder

    Yes either an AM2 test or join a JIB registered company.

    Indeed so..

    The training required if having a few bits of paper and joining a registered company is expected to take an additional 2 years or so.
