I worked in Sydney as a window cleaner for a while.
Its all cradle work there!
Forget carpets, everyone has floor tiles.

The window cleaning NVQ covers cradle work but not abseiling.  You need to keep in mind that comprehensive cradle training is not generic but peculiar to the system and site in question.  You would be making a life threatening mistake if you were to assume that generic training in the UK would be all that you would need to make you a safe cradle operative in Australia.  Andrew from Edu-Clean.
