    Electrical Engineer allowed to do Electrical work?

    Post  willijimon on Thu Mar 05, 2009 4:14 am

    hi,m
    Have been reading in some other posts and the Electrical Safety Act 2002 that Electrical Engineers are able to carry out household electrical works? IS this true or have I misread the info? Also if this is the case, ie that electrical work can be carried out by an engineer, how does one get a cert of compliance.

    Thanks

    The short answer is NO.

    The system is setup as a very closed shop and doesn't seem to allow for any exemptions for professionally qualified engineers - effectively, the only way to obtain a licence is via an apprenticeship.

    In my view, the system is well overdue for an overhaul.
