How To Know If Your Tradesman Has Had The Right Training

When you run into any problems at your home, whether they are electrical or building problems, you might need to hire a tradesman to come and repair / keep up the maintenance on the problem.

You need to know that the professional you are hiring is going to be the best person you could possibly find for the job you need doing –  the last thing you want is to hire the first person you find and then find out they are a cowboy tradesman.

You need to put some effort in to your search to make sure you get your work done properly by the appropriate people.

There will be a number of tradesmen in your local area which you can call upon; if you follow this advice then you will be able to find out which is best for you.


You will find that the best tradesmen are generally going to be busy most of the time, but don’t let that put you off.  If they want your work – which they will – then they will find the time to fulfill your needs.

Find out from friends, family and work colleagues if they have any recommendations for the work you need doing.


You should only ever work with qualified tradespeople; that is a fact.

Ask to see qualifications, certificates or license numbers.  This way you’ll be able to find out exactly how much training they have had to be able to carry out your work.

Also, ask about any past work and experiences they have – if people don’t want to let you know what they have done then it may be best to avoid them.


Cost is a big consideration for most people when it comes to repair work at their home, but making your decision based solely on how much it is going to cost you is a bad move.

The cheapest person doesn’t mean they are going to be the best – but this is why we do background checks on past work and qualifications.

Once you find the right tradesman for your needs, make sure to treat them with the respect they deserve – you never know when you are going to need to call them in the middle of the night due to a burst pipe, or your electricity going off.
