Then you need to get it accredited and recognised here. You would need to know all the Swiss standards, which are similar to EU "Norm". The RAV will probably be able to help you with where to go.

Re: English speaking Electrician looking for work....

We paid an absolute fortune to have our lights installed when we first moved over (only to have them taken down three months later when we had to move!) so perhaps you could do some 'freelance' work like that!
We do have lots of lights that need to be fitted so if you are interested in giving us a quote (we're in Luzern, not sure where you are) please let me know!
Thanks and good luck!
