Why You Should Ask Your Electrician About Their Electrical Certificate
Finding an electrician that you can trust can feel like trying to find a needle in a haystack. After all, letting a stranger into your home can come with risks. Finding a certified electrician can help reduce those risks and fears. But how do you know if the electrical certificate is real and what it even means? Here's what you need to know.
Benefits of Certification
Hiring someone with an electrical certificate means that they have proof of their education, training, and experience. They have likely gone through advanced training and taken an exam to prove their knowledge. The certificate is evidence of that. This helps you feel safer in hiring them to come to your home and do a good job.
Types of Electrical Certificates
The National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC) Part P requires that electricians provide a safe environment from fire or injury for people who are operating, maintaining, and installing electrical equipment. Those who are NICEIC Part P registered and certified have been approved by the government to uphold the standards for building regulations.
If you are a landlord, you should look for an Electric Installation Condition Report. This is the best way to fulfill your legal duties and ensure the electrical infrastructure of your property is safe for tenants.
Depending on the work you are having completed, you may also want to look for other certifications such as a Nest Pro certified installer or Office for Low Emission Vehicles Approved EV Charge Point Installer.
