Nick lets us know how his electrical training is going in latest blog

Train4TradeSkills Nick ElectricianI seem to get busier and busier each week, and believe me when I say they pass rather quickly. I have completed my 17th TMA, and feel really good about it.

I have subscribed to the Learninglounge.com and have found a massive wealth of informational videos contained therein. The only problem I have at the moment is that the connection I have is a bit slow, so every 10-15 seconds the video stops and buffers up the next part of the video to watch, what I might do at some point is use my parents connection as they have broadband.

There are little quizzes too on some of the videos that you watch which is really good because I does test your knowledge as you go.

I went onto Amazon.co.uk and bought a BS7671 DVD, this goes through all the sections of the Wiring Regs, and I found that to be extremely useful, of course they star Dave Austin and Tony Cable, and I find them very easy to understand.

Recently my girlfriend and I went to a car boot and I have picked up a few things. I bought a non-working drill for a quid…. found the fault to be the battery pack, and is now a working drill, yippee saved some money there. I also spotted a room stat and bought that for 50 pence along with a couple of sockets… bargain!!

I’ve introduced my mum to the world of Ebay, and now is hooked, and I have been buying stuff for her whilst we set-up her own account with Paypal, my mum collects ornamental musicians, of which she has accumulated hundreds of sets, and all are in a display cabinet/s.

Well that’s it for now, I’m going to do more revision, look briefly at setting up a business, which has a low priority now, and await my result for TMA17.

Till next time.

Nick
