Do you Require Qualifications to Become an Electrician?

Posted on: August 21st, 2012 by admin No Comments

Recommendations, testimonials and examples of work count for something; however it is the qualifications that really stand head and shoulders above everything else when searching for an electrician that you know full well you can put your trust in, as you will know that they have been through all the necessary training and are completely experienced in undertaking whatever electrical task you require of them. So to answer the title question, yes you do require qualification to become an electrician, and if you are searching for an electrician in West London, you couldn’t be in a better place, because we at First Strike Electrical have them all.

Always Remember to Check

It might sound so blatantly obvious that electricians do in fact require qualifications to carry out their job professionally and within the law, however you only need to turn on one of the many documentaries that detail ‘cowboy’ tradespeople to discover that there are many people out there selling themselves as ‘electricians’ but in fact have none of the essential qualifications and as a result will almost definitely leave you with sub-par and potentially highly dangerous workmanship on whatever you are having carried out.

It is for this reason that it is always best to check or ask about qualifications, and here at First Strike Electrical we are more than happy to divulge the rigorous training each electrician has gone through and the qualifications we have under our name – including being an NIC EIC approved contractor.

The Qualifications to Cover it All

This means that our electricians are qualified to carry out any task whatsoever, be it in a commercial or domestic setting. So no matter if you are in need of full house re-wiring or need a contractor to carry out the wiring on a new build property, simply need an outdoor light wiring in or alternatively are looking to have the necessary process of PAT Testing carried out for your commercial property, we have the qualified team for it.

They diagnosed the problem quickly helped us organise the replacement and when it arrived were on site the same day to fit it. A great service. They have never let me down.”

"I had severe water damage in my kitchen and the whole room needed to be refurbished from scratch. I did most of the work myself but required someone to come in and put in all of the electrics, so I called First Strike. They came in and quoted me a great price for the work and then carried it all out in a fast and high quality manner. Thank you so much for great service!"
