ha, I thought canada was the worst place for needing more certificates, but perhaps it is you guys.I am not licensed to do anything in Australia even though I am qualified. As far as I am aware I am allowed to design and fix electronic devices but am not allowed to change the plug on them as this requires a license.
For those unaware, it is illegal here to do any electrical work without being licensed. Changing a plug is considered electrical work.
Edit, from what I can gather this is the "closed shop" being reintroduced through health and safety regulation. I think, at the moment, it is still legal to change a tap washer without a license.
