Can a British gas engineer counter sign a passport? it says engineers can with qualifications.Obviously we have gas safe, is that ok?

Think it refers to degree qualified engineers but could be wrong

You'll probablly get a way with it, but it means qualifications that allow you to use letters after your name, i.e Chartered or Incorperated Engineer

they changed it a few years ago. It used to be any one with certain certificates, and 1 of them was city and guilds and me and my mates used to sign each others, them they changed it so it was things like degrees ect were you get letters after your name

If you go in a pub regular the landlord can sign. My first passport last year and that's what I did. No problems at all.
