BEST THING 2 DO IS INQUIRE WITH NAPPIT AND DECIDE IF
THEY OFFER U WHAT U R LOOKING 4.
I AM REGISTERED WITH NICEIC AS A DOMESTIC INSTALLER,
BECAUSE I DO MAINLY DOMESTIC.
LOOK INTO ECA AS WELL AND DECIDE WHATS BEST 4 U.
Hi Remelad, am ECA member & NAPIT for 'domestic installer part p'
reason being ECA mainly commercial/industrial orientated with loads of benefits but at VERY expensive membership fees aimed at larger firms.
they do a 'part-p ' scheme through BRE certification & have now bought out ELECSA so have their scheme as well!
NAPIT is mainly about Inspections/tests at all level so seemed the obvious choice for part-p, we have recently had our 2nd annual reinspection for continuing membership & are very happy to stay with them, they have a good help line plus on-line members only forum like this one, well worth the membership fee just to get monthly mag.
Biased? yup but only as satisfied member, (really hate NICEIC, now calling themselves 'National Safety Council!!!' another con. trying to sound official, but still misinterpreting regs!) at the of the day ya pays ya money & takes ya choice, regards
Thanxs to you blakey and sparx for your answers, think i will have to join NIC-EIC, as i'm not fully qualified electrician. Done a part p course at college which was a year long, not one of these 5 minute wonder courses and think Napit will only endorse part p for qualified electricians.
