    cheers Charlie, theres so many websites and so much to read up on just about if are stuff gets recognised out there! looks like im gonna have to wing it and just see whats happens when I get there!? the majority of my work here is site work so suits me down to the ground! Im not making it a permanent thing just gonna go for a year and see how i get on! will try my hand at most trades if need be! As your plumbing out there is it pretty much the same sorta work and same ways we do things back home? thinking of sending some tools out but as you know we have to carry alot for our job so whats prices like out there to buy tools etc?

  7. hello folks, Thinking about making the big leap to Oz on a 1 year work visa to get a taste for it! Back in the UK I am a fully qualified commercial and domestic Gas and Heating engineer, and I am a Mechanical onsite foreman for my company. basically I was wondering if anyone knows anything about our qualifications being recognised out in Australia?? And if anyone is working out there with similar qualifactions? Cheers Chris
