BANGKOK, 14 July 2016 (NNT) - The Department of Skill Development (DSD) will raise awareness for the 2014 Skill Development Promotion Act for building electricians, before the law is enforced on October 26th.

The DSD and the Thai Electrical & Mechanical Contractors Association (TEMCA) will co-host a seminar about the law from August 19th - 21st in Pattaya city, primarily for electricians working at industrial estates on the East Coast.

According to the 2014 Skill Development Promotion Act, the profession of building electrician can jeopardize the public if not performed by qualified individuals. Therefore, electricians must be certified by the DSD prior to employment. Failure to obtain certification before working as an electrician can result in legal penalties under the Act.

More than a thousand electricians have already been certified by the DSD. They were required to take several tests as part of the process. It is believed that there will be 40,000 qualified building electricians by the end of September.

This proves the Thai are much smarter then Europeans.

In W-Europe electricians go to a special technical school for at least 4 years, Thai can do it in 4 days! clap2.gif

My house sure will never see one again. After Somchai installed the cable for the kitchen-equipment (European kitchen) the whole fusebox burned out at night. It was the breaker for the kitchen, totally burned out.

I'd rather the headline read

Drivers of all passenger vehicles and boats will be required certification under new laws focused on health safety and competency -

The Department of Skills and Development will raise awareness as new laws come into effect requiring all drivers of passenger vehicles both land and sea to get certified under a new public safety initiative, once certification is gained a new licence will be issued, all those licenced will become directly responsible under new strict laws and procedures, with prosecution and stiff penalties for those found to be breaking the new laws.

All those applying for the new licence will be required to attend special training centers set up under the Marine Dept and Roads Dept, only those certified will be allowed to drive/captain public transport.

What standards are they going to use? From what I have seen Thailand doesn't have any that are worth calling standards. So I guess these guys will go for a few days learn about nothing and then be in theory qualified. I guess in Thailand that makes sense

Maybe they are just too familiar with being imperialistic.

This indicates a serious problem within the Thai education and the trades sector , you are actually saying tradesmen are not certified , you are a joke Thailand, you operate like the Junta , in the 18th century , all apprentice tradesmen should go to a trades and further education schooling (TAFE) and learn their trade properly, all tradesman should be certified , no doubt about Thailand the cart is always before the horse , and if there is a shortfall of finance as an excuse , axe the Tank and Submarine purchase..........................coffee1.gif .
