In any industry, there are professionals with the training to carry out skilled work and others that are woefully under qualified. One of the easiest ways to determine if the electrician you’re planning to use is qualified to complete the work is to determine if they are City & Guilds qualified.
City & Guilds is an institution that provides access to courses and qualifications for a wide variety of careers. From school leavers to those changing career, City & Guilds ensures that the person has the correct training and qualifications to start their career.
In the construction industry, it is difficult to even gain entry to a work site without a qualification. Sites throughout the UK have strict regulations concerning who is allowed on site, and while a tradesperson may have a wealth of skills, without the correct qualifications, they will find themselves barred from the industry.
A City & Guilds qualification provides an accessible route to obtaining further qualifications, experience, and skills in a number of careers including becoming a plumber, carpenter or electrician. While it is not the only qualification recognised by the industry, City & Guilds is recognised around the world.
The City & Guilds electrician qualification ensures that the technician is up to date with all the latest industry regulations. From safe use and operation of electrical equipment to wiring electrical systems, the qualification ensures that the holder is familiar with the current standards set by the British Standards Institute.
As a practicing electrician, technicians must comply with all the regulations for electrical work, and a City & Guilds qualification is designed to provide progression in the role and shows that the holder has developed all the skills needed to carry out the role and responsibilities that are associated with the electrotechnical industry.
While many trades including being an electrician are based on skills and experience, a City & Guilds qualified electrician has shown that they also have the technical knowledge to ensure that they can complete any work safely and in compliance with regulations. While many electricians may continue their learning to achieve other qualifications, a City & Guilds provides a solid foundation for further study or practical experience.
So, while some electricians may have gone the apprentice route and learned their trade from a more experienced professional, a City & Guilds qualified electrician has shown their commitment to keeping abreast of the latest regulations and has documented proof that they have the skills to complete your project.
Even minor electrical projects around the home are accompanied by risks of injury and accidents. Without the skills, expertise, and knowledge, there is an increased risk of fire and property damage. So, a City & Guilds qualification provides the reassurance that your chosen electrician is capable of completing your project and mitigating any risks.
Choosing an electrician can be an overwhelming task, but you don’t need to worry about searching for qualified candidates. All our recommended electricians not only have the skills, experience, and expertise but are also City & Guilds qualified and certified by recognised industry organisations such as NICEIC and NAPIT. This means that you can have the confidence that your home is in good hands.
Excellent, I will be using them again.
Fantastic workmanship to the highest quality. Really pleased to have that they done the work, and would highly recommend new leaf to anyone.
I fully recommend these guys completely, they are very down to earth, their prices are reasonable and they fit to your timescale.
Very prompt. Agreed price. Excellent service all round. I will call them again.

Excellent service could not fault from beginning to end. Also cleaned up after himself very well. Would highly recommend.
Great service and a neat & tidy job, Nest thermostat installed and working brilliantly (despite our old house with crazy wiring!) Would definitely recommend and will be using again. Affordable too. Thanks!
Great service, lovely guy and a job well done. Will be using again, thanks!
Tom came to my home at short notice having been recommended by a friend. Such a nice guy, knowledgeable, gives advice & very professional.
Well, what can I say. If you want an Electrician that turns up on time, presentable, polite, knowledgable, cleans up after themselves and charges a very, very fair amount then look no further than Surelec. Best by far Electrician. Thanks once again Thomas.
Highly recommended, I ask Tom to fit a Electric Shower, from booking me in, he came and fitted. Date and time agreed. - Having explained what he was doing alone the way, I felt very happy in what he was doing. He fitted the shower quickly and cleanly. Tided up as he went along, and when he was finished he made sure I was happy. Answering any questions I had along the way. Cheers Tom. Excellent service from start to finish
Surelec recently installed 2 bedroom lights for me. I found Tom great to deal with. A competitive quote was provided promptly and an appointment agreed within a good time frame. Tom kept me updated on his arrival time and the work was completed to the expected standard. Care was taken to be as tidy as possible. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Surelec to others.
Tom was a little late due to traffic but kept in touch he was quick and efficient and completed some extra jobs I had not put down on the app we were pleased with Tom's work and would recommend him
Very efficient, helpful and friendly. Will use again. Thanks
Excellent. He arrived at the agreed time and dealt with the problems efficiently and pleasantly. Strongly recommend!
Tom was brilliant communicating, getting the job done and leaving everything clean and tidy. He was a pleasure to have around the house. We've already had him back to do another job and would not hesitate to use him in the future. Cannot recommend highly enough.
A very efficient and professional service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Tom did an excellent job fitting our external power outlet. He was very quick to contact us and arrived on time. We would highly recommend Surelec Electrical Ltd
