Matt Staten – Company Director & Electrician

Chloe Hulme – Electricians Mate

Matt has Public Liability Insurance, is a Stroma approved contractor and is a JIB graded electrician.

He is also qualified with EAL NVQ Level 3, 18th Edition, Part P, City & Guilds 2391 and City & Guilds 2399.

What does this mean? See below.

NVQ Level 3 – Installing Electrotechnical Systems and Equipment (Buildings, Structures and the Environment)
This qualification is a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) and is part of the Apprenticeship framework developed by SummitSkills. NVQs encourage an employee to value their contribution to the workplace, and develop their skills and potential. It is recognised by the Joint Industry Board (JIB) for grading. This qualification requires occupational evidence.

EAL (Excellence, Achievement and Learning) are an awarding body, who specialise in construction industry qualifications. They are closely affiliated with many well known publications and organisations, like the IET, NICEIC and ELECSA.

Their qualifications are developed by industry experts with industry employers, working with and supporting their recognised training centres to be able to offer the most up to date qualifications.

EAL qualifications are equally as recognised in the industry as other awarding bodies, like City & Guilds.

JIB Grade Electrician
The Installation Electrician ECS gold card is for NVQ Level 3 skilled individuals who work unsupervised on the installation, commissioning and maintenance of low voltage electrical and electronic devices and appliances in a consumer’s electrical installation.

The gold card shows that the cardholder has completed a formal industry regulated competency based qualification, which includes technical theory with practical and competency assessments.

To apply for this card you must have a JIB recognised UK competency based qualification (electrotechnical Level 3 NVQ or a formal UK electrotechnical apprenticeship) plus a formal BS7671 qualification in the current edition of the wiring regulations in force when your application is made.

Approved Contractor

Stroma Certification’s UKAS accredited Competent Person Scheme (CPS) allows installers to self-certify their installation work in line with the Building Regulations. Homeowners and customers have immediate confidence that all installation work undertaken is compliant.

Approval is gained through an independent audit of company procedures against Building Regulation requirements, followed by examination of a relevant recent installation.

Public Liability Insurance

Touch wood, I have not had to make a claim yet. However, accidents can happen so Public Liability Insurance is there just in case.

Public liability insurance covers the cost of claims made by members of the public for incidents that occur in connection with your business activities. Public liability insurance covers the cost of compensation for: personal injuries. loss of or damage to property.

18th Edition
This qualification ensures that the installer is up-to-date with the latest industry regulation on wiring and the safe use and operation of electrical equipment and systems. It covers the 18th edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations, which comes into force in January 2019.
Building Regulations

Part P of the Building Regulations states that anyone carrying out electrical installation work in a home must make sure that the work is designed and installed to protect people from fire and electric shocks.

An electrical installation certificate should be issued for all works. The Part P Qualification is only relevant to domestic installations and it enables an electrician, who is registered with one of the five bodies such as Elecsa, Napit, NICEIC or Stroma etc to self certify domestic installations.

City & Guilds 2391

With City & Guilds 2391, the electrician will be able to do both commercial and domestic inspecting & testing. This is an essential skill for any electrical installer. Having this qualification demonstrates that the electrician has knowledge in the principles, practices and legislation for periodic inspection, testing and condition reporting of electrical installations in accordance with statutory and non-statutory regulations and requirements. This qualification demonstrates the specialist knowledge and skills, such as appropriate legislation, testing installations and issuing safety certificates.
City & Guilds 2399

City & Guilds 2399 is a quality, in-depth course designed to equip installers and designers with the knowledge to be able to design, install, test, commission and maintain small scale solar photovoltaic systems. Unlike many other Photovoltaic courses, this course includes the practical installation of Solar Panels to a roof.

Client Reviews

Fabulous at the job he did … great guy.

Couldn’t ask for a better job with the work that was done on my home. Matt arranged and installed most of the electrics in my home. He was clean, clear and on time with all he said he was going to do.

I will certainly ask Matt to do more work for me and would have no worries in suggesting to my mates that they use him for all the electrical work. Cheers Matt for everything you have done!
