I dont see why the NICEIC shouldnt help but I'd expect them to see it as an income opportunity and charge you a fee for doing so!

If not then get an early claim in with the liquidators.

Good luck - when it happened to me I wasn't surprised and set up on my own. A rather less certain future but its all my fault when things go wrong. Overall the best thing that's ever happened to me - certainly reduced my stress levels - I work where I want, when I want for whom I want.

Ive never heard of such a certificate, but if one did exist would be handy for everyone at some time or other.

As the QS, you would have signed off the dot coded assessment form with the magic laser pen. You need to get your hands on the copy they gave back to you on the day.
Id be tempted to phone your area engineer on his mobile- thus avoiding the read from script front desk people. 99% of AC AE's are former electricians themselves, so maybe sympathetic to the cause.

Either that you get in sharpish with a DI application to avoid the diploma nightmare.

Sorry to hear you have been made redundant it happened to me nearly 10 years ago, I knew it was coming and volunteered to go although it was made pretty clear to me staying would not be in my best interests. It is a blow both to your pocket and personal moral and hard to get off the mat when you have been knocked down by the body blow but you can come back and re-build if you are determined.

The NICEIC do issue QS identity cards but it may be to late now the company is in liquidation. Don't expect any help from the NICEIC Head Office but you may get some support from your Area Engineer and have a look to see if you have any paperwork from your assessments to prove you were a QS. It is very important to be able to verify this to get Grandfathers rights as soon you will need a soppy NVQ3 to be a QS.


Best of luck.

Do you have an ECS card - if you are a QS, won't it be listed on there ?

Even as a lowly DI (as some here would say!) my niceic card and JIB card both show me as a QI. From memory I think I was told that's on account of me having 2391 and being full scope,

My ECS card does not have my QS status on it perhaps because I did not tell them when I applied and when I renewed it. One of my merry men has his QS status on the front of his card with his company name. I was told if you move companies you have to update the card as you no longer work for the named company.

It's an option on the application form John, along with IET membership.

I failed at the first hurdle by not having a current 17th edition qualification and struggling to find somewhere that does "exam only"

there are plenty of places to sit the exam only. Funny enough I did the update 2382-12 a few months back at the place me and JP undertook the 2396. Cost £120 and you could turn up at a moments notice, so I'm sure others offer the same.

I have QS on my ECS card. They require you to send company NICEIC enrolment cert, letter of approval of QS and latest assessment report from area engineer.

OK - thanks Jobbo - I did speak to a few a little more local to my day job and they were adamant i needed 2 days practical instruction before the exam was possible - sounds like a little white lie to generate a bit more cash

I'll contact John this week to get some details then - will I need to get a tan if I'm heading for Ethics ?

regards

Yep tan, white shirt, tight trousers and sun glasses on your head regardless of weather or time of day is obligatory. You may need a phrase book to translate the local dialect.

It's closer to my day job than Essex - I'm not to far from Reading, Newbury, and Amazingstoke - Guildford would be a short hop in reality - and I wouldn't need spray tan to go to Guildford

Local college Nick ?

I can cope with "innit", "well jel" and "yeah, babe" delivered with a vacant expression John - will that get me conversing with the natives ?

Similar thing happened to me.
I had to set up on my own, but had to wait 6 months before getting NIC approved status.
They wouldn't consider the 6 years that I was a QS, which was a pain.
I was advised to go DI first and upgrade later. Which I declined.
One thing I would say, after all the time it took. Get your application in now. By the time they get round to your assessment, you should have enough work in for them to inspect.
