The best thing you can do for your home or business is to make sure that you deal with qualified trades. When it comes to electricity, you can get seriously injured, or worse. Using licensed electricians is always a good choice. These skilled workers will not only prevent you from getting hurt, but they will also give you safe electrical installations. Licensed electricians usually have years of training and have passed vigorous examinations.
Did you know that in order for individuals to become a licensed electricians, they need to have 6000 hours of practical, on the job training? They also need to attend school for 4 years and pass a provincial exam. This training enables them to become journeyman electricians. Furthermore, an individual can go a step beyond that and become a “FSR”, or field safety representative. This credential gives the ability to become a licensed electrical contractor and to pull permits. Always deal with a licensed electrical contractor, because they have to make sure their installations are safe and inspected. The various levels of field safety representatives are A,B and C. The only difference between each class is that they are able to do increasingly higher voltage and amperage work. There are people out there who pretend to be qualified, but they have never completed all the training required. Always make sure that you ask to see their red seal accreditation, or electrical contractor accreditation card. Our licensed electricians spend a lot of time fixing bad and dangerous work done by these people, so beware!
