Returning to trade after long absence

    I was a fully qualified electrician for 10 years and I had to seek a new career in 2008 due little work at the time.

    I am 40 now and in the accounting sector with a steady job, albeit underwhelming in income. But I have this incredible urge to get back into the trade.

    Has anyone else done this and able to guide me on how I would go about it? I have booked a manual handling and safe pass course. Is there any refresher course that would be of use to employers?

    Is 15 years too long out of the game?
