June 2012 Rego - Howd ya go???
« on: August 13, 2012, 09:48:35 AM »
Hey there, just wondering how everyone got on with the gas exam, im a little guttered as I just come up short, getting 55. Marked it on the hard side, good sorts, heres a question "Give TWO methods of protecting from physical damage a gas meter that is to be installed in a vehicle access area."

Has anyone been for reconsideration and is it worth it???

Jayp - how about a cage around it and the other one is to install bollards.

Shocking mate, over $1200 to go to work.... was a time you were paid to work, now, thanks to the PGDB in their skyscraper, expensive defunct computer system, free trips to Melbourne, big wages.....and we pay to go to work?

Really happy for you though, good on ya.

Trust them to put a cloud right in the middle of your silver lining.
