  1. I would like take a course like this but the only thing is I am living in Mexico and I am mexican, I don’t know if this course is avialable to overseas.Can you tell me if I can apply on this course?

    1. Hi Adolfo, I’m afraid we don’t run any courses in Mexico but from time to time do run them in New Zealand, China, Philippines and Australia.

    1. Hi Simon, Sorry but I’ve just been in Auckland running an electrical inspector’s course last week. I’ll be back at the beginning of June to run more training. Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll make sure you’re on the list.

      1. Hi Glenn,

        I did the 4 day course with you in AKL during Oct 2013. I would like to know when the next one is – i think you said in the comment June? May have staff to put through it
