HI All,

Just to let you know the "corgi man" has just left after 2 hours of questions etc & is putting me forward for registration, dont know if that is a good or bad thing, but I still think it is a rip off
I paid for ccn1 etc & still have to pay for corgi to say I can do gas work.

Then he can spot visit and call you back to change which side of the gas pipe through the wall from the garage to the cupboard under the stairs you should have sealed; on his way there he will have waved politely as he passed two Polish up a ladder at an illegal height to work from fitting a flu which is 200mm from an openable window directly oposite the neighbours bathroom window 1.5 meters away, but it's not that big a problem because there is no steam coming from the flue as the products of combustion are so hot that it satisfies sedbuk band D. It'll be joined into the same plug as the kettle instant water heater.

The bad news is that unless you are a qualified electrician with his inspection and testing qualification and you don't just want to fit boilers with ready fitted moulded plugs into an existing socket within 1 meter of the boiler and use volts free room stat controlled by an onboard clock you noiw have to train to do part P. That cost me 750 and another 750 for test gear then about 500 to join niceic (nicky).

As Karen said "it's only just begun..."

You fool, you should have done a two week course in plastering!

I did it ages ago and got confirmation email but no new card, emailed a week ago asking why no card, got reply saying ANOTHER would be sent. STILL NO CARD.

Since customers never ask for it, am I bothered? Look at me?

But no, agree with you, admin is crap.

I am still waiting for my card as well....
I tried to renew online and could not access the part of the process that allowed me to register my :rolleyes: :rolleyes: "Everyone must have by April part L qualification" :rolleyes: :rolleyes: so I called CORGI and then I was told that because I had called them I would have to pay the fee for the telephone renewal, rather than the fee for the online renewal... MMmmm well I am sure you can imagine my reply to that one... Haha..

Truth is you need Corgi, punters see it as a general standing of quality, I even got asked if I'm Corgi reg'd from someone wanting a bath suite fitted.

Even today picking up a presure relief for an unvented, the woman in the shop asked if I was Corgi, if so could I service her boiler, fire and write a saftey ticket - so £200 for the registration pays for itself in no time.

Yes but for 200 squid the fekcing least they could do is let you know the authorisation number on yer card even if they never intend to send it out!

My experience is that when I lost my wallet and cancelled the card, then found the wallet again, I couldn't cancel the new card, but they sent a new one out for free and added my LPG qualifications for free too, so not always bad. It's just you can't reach them at all by phone or email at this time of year as they appear to be unable to cope with the annual registrations, I reckon they should stop the system where everyone renews at the same time [ersonally.

The only other issue is the inspector coming round and acting as a salesman (with menaces) for corgi direct stuff.
