Dave's Clean Sweep

This article was printed in 2005.  Since then the Guild of Master Sweeps Ltd has been dissolved and a new trade organisation formed.  Unfortunately I found I had a professional conflict of interest with this organisation and also could not agree with some of their rules and policies.  I left the Guild in 2007 and am now a member of APICS.  I am now taking a City and Guilds NVQ in Chimney Engineering.

In 2008 I completed and passed an NVQ in Chimney Engineering (units VR01,VR02, VR03 and VR56) which took nine months to complete.  This qualification is not only City and Guilds verified but also entitles me to hold a CSCS card which is Constructional Skills standard for all contractors who wish to work on sites.  This card shows a high level of competency in health and safety and safe working practices.
