    Nice going, some advice from some sparkies I know
    a) get a car (unless you have tools on site in which case a motorbike could do), it makes you eminently more employable.
    b) be prepared to work long arduous hours during the first year or so and try not to piss off your boss: first year employees are common enough, trained ones however are not so common.

    I'd love to do something like this and actually learn a trade thats useful.

    Im 25 now so too old but I'd love to go back to 17 or 18, knowing what I know now and have another go at it. [​IMG]

    Good luck man. Work hard and in 4 years time (which will fly by) you'll be earning twice as much as me [​IMG]
