Electrical Competence:

Electrical Competence….Some say “I’m a good electrician, but I don’t have the qualifications to prove it!” Many client organisations and consequently employers are growing in their awareness of the requirement to prove that individual electrical workers are competent. Most public sector tender prequalification questionnaires continue to show a trend towards precise interest in the specific competency of individual electrical workers.

So why keep up to date?

  1. You will improve your understanding of current requirements, make better decisions, spot threats and opportunities and prepare yourself or your business to be PQQ ready.
  2. Secondly, keeping up-to-date is key to building and improving your reputation. By developing expertise in your  job and your industry, you’ll earn the trust and respect of customers.
  3. Finally, it will alert you to changes that may just give you and your employer an edge when comes to winning a tender opportunity.

Training can be a significant cost both in terms of time and money to any business or individual. However, failure to train and update yourself or your workforce may cost a lot more in lost opportunities.
