The nic are the most popular,because they are better known to the public and industry because they have been around longer
They are useful therefore if you require their high profile for generation of work

Elecsa are the eca section that registers contractors for part p The eca is a much bigger organisation that deals more with large contractors and bug buisness

Napit are more of an electricians union They require higher entry criteria but are less known than the others

There is nothing to stop anybody carrying on electrical work irrespective of being a member of these organisations
The ultimate criteria is to work to BS 7671,the rest is about profile

No such thing as Part P qualifications.

Your qualifications are enough to join a scheme which in turn allows you to comply with Part P of the building regs.

Im sure I got told that if you have served a full electrical apprenticeship and have inspection & testing, BS7671 etc. you need part P, is this right?

Sorry i dont know sparky. i actually did a mechanical apprenticeship once completed i went on to do the electrical qualifications i stated above. So not really sure where i stand. I am also a member and a incorporated engineer in the IET but think that counts for nothing in this area. think it would be easy to understand i maybe im just a bit daft!

Part P is a building regulation not a scheme.

There are a few ways to comply, one includes joining one of the schemes.
