    forming a plastering gang

    Hey Steve we are living in Redcliffe which is half an hour from Brisbane so work anywhere either way from my house within half an hour, yes you need a white card and to get the white card do it online with Bluedog training, that is who I did mine with and it was straight forward, tape and joint on site is $900 for a house and I can do one in 2 hard days so 2 men could do it in the day, it's all done using boxes over here, but as I've said before I want to board and they glue boards on over here with screws at the top and bottom of a board and that's it, they also board side ways over here not upright like in the UK.

    If it's not your husband applying then I wouldn't bother as I have never been asked to show certificates, it's a case of ring up someone, they give you a chance if your works good they'll pay you' if not they wont and you wont get any more work off them. Over here you need a white/blue card, I did mine online with Bluedog training, it wasn't very much and takes about an hour and half. I know in QLD you need a licence for jobs worth more than $3300 if your proper self employed not subbying and for that you do need the AQF, city and guilds/NVQ means nothing here and then apply for your licence. If he is the main applicant then yes he will need certificates.

    Check in times

    we fly at 07.20 on 7/10/13 with Malaysia airlines from Manchester to Heathrow (this part of the journey is on B.A) then on to Kuala Lumpur and then Brisbane, what I cant find an answer to is how long do we need to check in at Manchester before we fly because the first leg is a domestic flight but it's also the first leg on a international flight do we check in 1 hour before departure as domestic flight or 3 hours before departure as international flight. Ta.
