    Emmigrating to UK

    If one were to relocate to the UK as an installation electrician, registered with the DOL and also 60 years old, what would be the requirements one had to fulfill in order to work there as a maintenence electrician or to open an electrical company?

    Had a long chat with a mate who has just started the process of preparing all his documentation.

    My mate left 2 years ago (master electrician) ...he arrived in December 2018 worked as a dishwasher for the month of December to cover living costs ...started a job as an electrician in Jan 2019 ...had to do a few exams ...passed all of them and is now full legit and making some good money.

    One good thing is coming of this brain drain ...the people who stay are becoming more and more valuable... everywhere i go i hear the same thing over and over ...it is becoming very difficult to find people who know what they are doing ...actually do what they say they will do in the time frame they promise to do it in.
    Comments are based on opinion...not always facts....that's why people use an alias.

    Yes I am getting the same feedback.
