Blog for October

Right then readers, that’s October done and dusted and I’m catching up with my blogs.

Let’s just sit back and reflect; work-wise, it’s been a very busy month. That’s probably a result of manager’s knuckling down after the holiday season have finished and getting training targets completed before we hit the festive season.

And now (drumroll ….) time for one of Ted Barret’s little observations – if you are considering buying any shares, get into Coffee! I thought that the fad for coffee had reached its peak and gone over the hill. Well, you can get that idea out of your head. Judging by the amount of training I have done for maintenance staff relating to coffee, one way or another we are still on the crest of a wave. I personally hate to see people waddling around with cups of coffee in the street trying to look cool. It seems like another jerk walking around shouting into their mobile phone. However, I’m beginning to think that this coffee thing is really going to be with us for quite a while yet (as coffee has been drunk in this country since the 1600’s I suppose that speaks for itself!).

Just one example I can reveal is that one of my training customers has a fully-fledged coffee bar in London that is mothballed (never been open to the public yet) and is just “waiting for the area to mature for coffee”. I remember several decades back when investors were saying “get into leisure”, well I suppose this is an endorsement of that statement.

So, where have I been this month? Like I have said before, I love my working life these days, I regret having to spend on average 2-3 days a week in hotels but that is the trade-off that I have to accept. So where did Ted go? Let’s see: Isle of Wight, Poole, Tredegar (Wales), Dagenham, Horsham to name a few. I also still have my regular customers at Oxford, Witney and Culham.

Of all the above, I really enjoyed the Isle of Wight, I hadn’t been there since a child and really enjoyed the car ferry trip. Just goes to show how easily pleased I am.

I should also add that this job has made me take incursions to that dark and forbidding land across the border – Wales. This is a land that has never really been on my radar. Again once as a little kid and a wet weekend in Barry Island. Nonetheless, I have crossed the border a few times in this past year (and you do actually leave England) and must report that it is a beautiful country with a people that are both passionate and kind. What disturbs me is that since the demise of mining and industry in Wales the country is suffering badly. I just wish that the agencies and charities that care so much about other parts of the world would take off their blinkers and look a little closer to home.

Following numerous requests, I’ve been trying to develop courses for “Part P” but this is far from easy. I have however made some progress and I am now in a position to move forward with this but candidates must realise that there are no short-cuts to being an electrician. With any Part P scheme the final sign-off must come from a qualified supervisor. So unless you are already qualified you can only be registered to initially sign off. I suppose you could do the course, start up your own contracting company, and then employ a qualified electrician to do your final sign-off – stranger things have happened.

I had a call the other day asking if I would like to work with a certain organisation helping to develop courses for the 18th Ed of BS7671. Sadly, I have not received my draft copy yet so had to decline (we reckon the 18th will be due out July 2018, so I won’t get a draft for comment until 2017). Still, top marks for that outfit in keeping ahead of the game. As we lead up to the 18th I will be attending every course and seminar I can.

As we head into November, I still have booking’s aplenty on the training front, I shouldn’t say it, but I hope it goes a bit quiet in December so I can get some DIY and course development work done.

I suppose I should have a sign-off catchphrase to my blog. Like Shaw Taylor used to have on “Police 5” – “Keep them Peeled”. I’ll welcome any (clean) suggestions.

So, “Evening All” (where did that come from then? E-mail and let me know).
