The UK LOVES their qualifications.  Like they have qualifications in call centres.  Seriously.

The electrician (not sure if you or your partner) will need to obtain UK qualifications to work.  Once qualified, it should be no different to any newly qualified electrician.  Like plumbing, electricity never goes out of style.

Its my husband, looks like he will only need to take a couple tests to transfer his license but I'm just curious how different it is there, if the weather impacts work as that's a concern he has (although I told him I suspect they take the weather into account and stage construction differently), curious how long the process is to get uk electrician license etc

For once, it seems pretty straight forward, with some useful information on the web, taking the three certification exams. Probably takes as long as needed to study, schedule and pass the exams.   :)

Good info PB!

For the first, it says most finish the course in two months. (they say 35 hours of prep is needed)

For the second, it doesn't give a length but says 10 working days of prep is needed.

For the third, it looks pretty lengthy if I'm honest!  And quite expensive..   :-\\\\
