Hey Robbo ,
  Good one. Well done.
 Thanks for the heads up on this road show as I will be attending it tomorrow and was wondering what I was in for.
I am presuming this will cover my licencing requirements for both Plumbing and Gas.
It is good to know that it is relevant and informative.
 And as I will have to take the day off work  to attend i can justify a sleep in (mental health) and a few non business chores ;) Woo Hoo

Well done to all involved. Its good to see some common sense being applied.

Lets hope the change in attitudes continues.

Also found it to be informative - especially the Supervision requirements - I would say this is the biggest eye opener to industry right across NZ.  I think it took some people a bit to get their head around a staff member who had failed their exams and completed the National Certificate and became an exemption holder having to be supervised the same as a first year apprentice.  I would venture to say that the large per centage of tradespeople are flouting this - it has implications legally but even worse - any work that person does that is not done under the appropriate supervision requirements could put the home owner and business owner's insurance cover at risk.  This training also has added benefits in that it is a chance for cohorts of plumbers gasfitters and drainlayers to get together and have a catch up - something that is not done often enough.  Much better than collecting "points" and has some real information delivered by those not too far from the coal face.

Agree the Federation need a pat on the back - common sense has finally seen the sunlight!
