Your assessment will usually last for a half or full day.

It is not uncommon for contractors to feel nervous on the day.

However, it is important to understand that our engineers are not there to catch you out or trip you up.
It is simply an opportunity for you to demonstrate your ability to carry out electrical installation work in compliance with the required regulations.

Some people even look forward to it!
