Hi chaps

Had my 2nd annual assessment with inspector today and passed :)
I was getting a bit worried as i hav'nt done my 17th update as yet, and thought he may try to 'catch' me out but did'nt need to worry it went very well

From what i've been hearing of late it seems a lot of people are going to Elecsa now

Tonytrying,

I was showing him a garage re-wire( new CU sockets,internal lighting and PIR lighting outside)
I had to replace the CU in house that was supplying sub-main to garage as original had no RCD on it.

He asked me to test RCD on CU in house then Zs on sockets in garage, he took a look inside a socket and lighting switch, all in all i found it ok:)

Niceic seem to be set up for the customers where as Elecsa are set up for the contractors so if you want support your better with elecsa as from what ive heard they are very supportive and friendly.

Iceman, i have an advert in yellow pages, did have a few nuisance calls at first :mad: but now most calls are concerning work


Lots of my work is as a result of reccomendation from satisfied customers:)

I have only ever known Elecsa but do find them very helpful and easy to work with

i have just paid elecsa online so hopefully they will be getting in touch to book an assessment. as i am just starting out i dont really have any work for him to assess. would it be possible to do a consumer unit change at home for the assessor to look at

i would appreciate any advice on this

Some contractors we have worked for in the pass have asked for NIC only. But its good to see a bit more competition now

Well I am Elecsa registered and also ECA approved for non part P, both very good.

Unfortunately so many people wont accept ECA but want NIC so I am going for the full NIC which also gives you Part P and at half the cost of Elecsa and ECA combined.
Wish I could stay with ECA Elecsa though

I'm currently with ELECSA, have nothing but good to say about them. Their web site is excellent. I think due to the fact that their owned by th ECA helps.
Now......
My membership is due for renewal next month.... and i'm going to sign up with the NICEIC.
The public/councils/builders trust /RECOGNISE the NIC and they pay my wages, its a shame but its a decision based purely on finances.
I'm in business to make a living and ELECSA are not very high profile.

ELECSA.................SORT IT OUT!

That would probably be acceptable, give them a ring on their helpline and ask, they will give you a definite answer.



I am also with Elecsa and i am very frustrated with the amount of publicity and awareness for the organisation. NICEIC put a lot of effort into informing customers about who they are and what they do, and i have not seen elecsa doing anything like this. For the amount of money it costs to join you would think they would start to raise their profile to the same level as the nic. i will most probably transfer to nic next year.
 
Hi just jumped in on thread and to throw a spanner in the works i am joining napit !!! they are more expensive than others any one using napit out there ??
 
If you contact Elecsa and let them know which Council etc is unsure/won't accept the Elecsa registration they'l leap on it, call the Council and it usuallly sorts the situation out.

Personally I certify through Elecsa but use all the free literature from NIC/ESC. and have invested in the ESC technical manual and bought a couple of NIC publications too.

Rgds,

Will.
