Well I had sex with Pam St. Clement last week.

I wouldn't recommend it.

Good money if you can get the work.
I have my pat testing certificate but never had any work to use it.

Some equipment we build at work gets put through our own PAT equipment but isn't an approved test.

To be honest, it doesn't seem very exiting at all but I don't carry it out myself.

Im only wanting 2 - 3 days a week to boost my wage a little bit so Im not bothered if its boring as long as it pays.:proud:

Money for old rope job especially if it's your own firm. We have to have them in and they are paid £5 per item tested. You can do dozens and hour and at £5 a time the money is soon rolling in. I had a box of old IEC leads in the corner of my room and I wasn't there when they did my area. When I came back they had tested every lead and stuck a tested sticker on them!, must have been 50 plus of the buggers and I threw them away in the end costing me a fortune, its cheaper to but new than to have them tested!!!!

if u buy new ones u still need them tested m8
and if u threw them away u just cost urself more money
as its cheaper for retest than it is for a new item to go on there database
