RE: PI Insurance for non-chartered engineer
As I said, you will have to ask a broker for a quote if you want PI insurance.
As far as your other question about becoming a self employed engineer is concerned, the easiest way to become self employed is to resign from your current post. Apologies if that seems a bit flippant, but thats how it is. If you think too long or hard about starting your own business, you will probably not do it.
When the salary cheque does not arrive in the bank account at the end of the month, you will realise the most important thing in the world is to gain an income stream. That means sales. And most of the engineers I know are not that comfortable with being viewed as a 'double glazing salesman'. You have to ask yourself if you can be a salesman. If you can sell your grandmother, then its probably for you.
