13 Feb What Certifications does a Qualified Electrician Need?
Taking time to find a qualified electrician will ensure that your electrical work is carried out to a high standard and you will feel 100% safe within your home or office. But what actual certifications does a qualified electrician require? One of the most important certifications to look out for when finding an electrician for your home is the NICEIC domestic installer.
This certification will ensure that your electrician has been assessed to ensure that their work meets all relevant technical and safety standards. Your domestic electrical installer will provide you with a Part P certificate on completion of your electrical work. This certificate will provide you with an insurance backed warranty from NICEIC which covers domestic electrical work up to £25,000. This warranty will ensure that any work that does not meet building regulations will be rectified.
To ensure that the electrician that you choose has had a sufficient amount of training you should ensure that they are City and Guilds qualified. This certification will mean that the electrician has undertaken a number of exams and been successfully trained with the required knowledge for undertaking electrical work.
Along with these certifications it’s also a great benefit if your electrician has passed an asbestos awareness training course. This additional knowledge will ensure that they take sufficient precautions to keep you safe within your property. If your building was built or refurbished before the year 2000, there is a possibility that asbestos is present.
Our electricians at Brightlec have all of the above certifications and can provide you with high quality electrical work that keeps you safe.
