Same here. I am quite lucky in that if I see how someone does something, I can usually do it myself. This is why I do my own carpentry, building work, plumbing, central heating, electrical work, etc.

Other things I have picked up at work without formal training include CAD drawing, using our CNC router and various other machines.

I consider all of this to be self tuition even if it did involve asking other people questions.

I don't have qualifications in any of it but I'm too close to retirement to worry about that now!
