Above post I meant for not selling to UNQUALIFIED ENGINEERS.
You are correct, many times on the phone have I been called part of the 'Refrigeration Mafia' for not selling to qualified engineers.
The problem is the wholesalers who are not quite where they want to be so will sell to anyone in order to make a quick buck.
Hidden Agenda from the IOR from the face of it.
No surprise that Brazil are ahead of us in a Skills Competition.
Well done to Stuart though must of been a really tough field.
Same old story. Pics of bits of units that look like the back end of a cow, and Im supposed to advise the right part and get the ear bashing when its not right.
I Have not had a video sent in yet though, Maybe in the next year or so Im guessing with the introduction of the latest Iphone (kids passing on older models to there Dads)
Thermofrost are spot on here.
No central database means that its impossible to police.
As a Wholesaler to the trade My company make every effort not to sell to someone that does not know what there doing but it cannot be policed.
Anyone thinking otherwise is living in a dream world, Besides the customer of the engineer wont care as the unlicensed one is more likely going to be cheaper
Legislation should come into this industry but to police it with a f gas card would be a non starter in the wholesale trade.
