Hello Eleanor.

Did you get to work with DaveSparks at all? That would have been good experience.

I would choose Stroma as they are a lot cheaper than all the other schemes and offer exactly the same service so it's an easy decision really. Is there a reason why you have left out the NICEIC? The only reason why I could see to go with the NICEIC is if you have a lot of work from one company or perhaps an estate agent (doing EICR's) that stipulate you are NICEIC registered but that is unlikely.

it's a rumour pete, sent to confuse us. don't take much anyway. now where did i leave my beer?
 
First question are you doing enough business to warrant joining a scam.
You can do around 50% of all domestic installation without initially having to join.
Obviously once you start doing full rewires you will require scam membership.
Keep us posted which route you choose...

I must contact Dave again. I was busy completing the 18th , No real excuse now :)

I don’t think it’s viablle to do domestic work, without being in a scheme.

Unless your just putting up lights from Ikea.

And that is harder than joining a scheme. Stroma for me as they are very thorough and well priced. Napit is good as well but I imagine starting up you want to save on costs. NICEIC is the de facto one to go with but it should not be so. The one thing I would say regarding image, is that Stroma is often conflated with Stoma in some peoples mind.
