Choosing the right electrician for your home or business is an important task. However, with so many to choose from, it can be a difficult one. How do you determine who is reliable and who isn’t?

We’ve put together a handy guide on the qualities you should look for when looking for a reliable electrician.

A Reliable Electrician Will Be Qualified And Certified

When looking for a reliable electrician, your first step should always be to look at their qualifications and accreditations.


There are a variety of qualification paths available to those looking to become an electrician. Your role is to make sure they took at least one of them. Whether they received an NVQ or a BTEC, you need to be sure that the person handling your electricals knows what they are doing. Make sure to ask anybody you are thinking of hiring about their qualifications.


Any professional worthy of your time and money will be accredited by a professional and trustworthy body. This is a prime method of understanding who is trustworthy and who isn’t. Check for accreditation from organisations such as the National Inspection Council for Electrical Contracting (NICEIC) and the National Association of Professional Inspectors and Testers (NAPIT).
