All our current electricians have all been through and passed four years of apprenticeship training before they became qualified electricians.
We must train to have the knowledge and skills to be able to carry out electrical work correctly and safely.
Our initial apprenticeship training is then supplemented by working out in the field and gaining hands on experience which broadens our skills.
Unlike some trades though electricians have to continue training throughout their careers to not only learn new skills but also to keep up to date with latest regulations and health and safety matters. So the next time you employ an electrician into your business or home a good starting point would be to ask them what training courses they have been on within the last 5 years and ask to see their SJIB Grade card which requires to be updated regularly and also states their training qualifications.
Stirling Electrical Services electricians regularly attend training courses for the services we undertake and over the coming weeks all our electricians will be attending courses for asbestos awareness, electrical appliance testing, powered mechanical lifting equipment and importably an update course for our BS7671 electrical regulations which have an amendment update published this year.
Good electricians and electrical companies should be regularly attending courses such as the ones above and the reason we do this is to make sure that the work we undertake for you our customers is carried out technically correct and also that it is carried out safely.
