    Good day guys
    I have recently just qualified, I live in CPT and it's almost impossible to qualify from here.
    You no longer need to have your N6 as of a month ago, it's N4 if you have 5 years in the hazardous industry but still N6 with 1 year experience in hazardous.
    You still need to be a wireman for 2 years with the N6 option.
    Once you have completed the two specialized Installation rules papers and have the necessary practical and theoretical subjects you can do the unit standards, I went to P&T in JHB, it's a 5 day course, you then have to do 2x Hazardous area COC's ( dummies are fine) you have 3 months to complete this.
    You then submit and get feedback if things need to be changed.
    After you have submitted they set a date for you to do a quick practical test, basic Ex inspection etc. which i done at MJW in Sasolburg.
    Once this is complete the waiting begins, they mark all your Portfolios and give you a letter which you then send to Department of Labour.

    In total i waited about 6 months for this and if you are not from JHB it's very expensive, and then was issued with my Red (pink) card with my signature upside down.

    But it's still worth it.

    What does a person submit as proof of one or five years practical experience in
    hazardous locations, to be able to register as a MIE?
    Would a letter from the company you have been employed with stating that you have been working in and doing work in hazardous locations for the relevant period with their letter head and stamped by the relevant HOD be sufficient?

    http://web.vdw.co.za/Portals/23/Docu...nexure%20A.pdf

    FLP (SAFA - South African Flameproof Association) states that this declaration is sufficient. Once all requirements under Option 4 have been met, then only can you apply at FPL for the COPC (Certificate of Personal Competency) http://www.tfaforms.com/334248

    Good luck with your application

    hi everyone, as you all can see i'm new here. I found this site on google, because i was searching for the way to get notes and old question paper for MIE. I'm currently going to write my paper 1 in November, and I only have the medical location information. I had been trying to see if I can get assistance on LinkedIn but it didn't work. I am here trying to get the study material and the notes for SPEC ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION CODES en I'm willing to pay a minimum fees for gratitude. I'm in Namibia and I'm struggling and the exam is ticking. Please Help

    Go to www.sacpo.co.za and get their contact details, you can purchase old exam papers from them.
    The syllabus you can get from SABS aswell but the material is extremely expensive but they supply it.
