Your electrician questions answered

Do I have to be home when the electrician arrives?

Yes. Communication is the key to getting exactly what you need from your chosen electrician. At least one person should be in the house during the configuration or repair.

How skilled are your electricians?

The electricians on our network are licensed and trained in the field. They have the knowledge and experience required to properly configure your electrical systems as well as carry out any electrical repairs to your system.

Are electricians required to be part of a trade body?

It is always a good idea to choose a contractor who is part of a trade body. When it comes to electricians, you want to find someone who belongs to the ECA or Electrical Contractors Association.

What are the requirements for becoming an electrician?

First, a student must obtain a level 3 diploma in a recognised field. These are normally completed while the student is apprenticed to a professional electrician. It will normally take 2-4 years to become fully certified in the field.

What is the difference between a journeyman electrician and a master electrician?

A journeyman electrician must work under the direction of a master electrician, and is prohibited from performing certain types of work. A master electrician can complete any electrical repair job, and does not require supervision.
