An electrician in Mornington, who is licensed according to Victorian regulations, is qualified to do many different kinds of work. Because there are several types of electrical licences, however, it is important to know what jobs the electrician you are considering hiring is legally qualified to perform.
There are different licences for individuals and for businesses. For safety and quality reasons, no firm or worker may perform services not authorised by the license held. Begin your search for an electrician in Mornington by finding an appropriately licensed electrical contractor to oversee the job.
A business or individual licensed as a gold electrical contractor can provide any kind of electrical work to the public.
Competencies covered by this licence include:
Ceiling fan or power point installation
Switchboard or safety switch installation or alteration
Split-cycle air-conditioner installation
Washing machine repair
Processing plant maintenance
Installation or alteration of wiring or fixed appliances in a building.
Be aware that not every electrical contractor holds a gold licence. A contractor with a silver contractor licence can only operate a business to test, repair and maintain the voltage and type of electrical equipment printed on the back of the licence. This licence does not allow the holder to install electrical equipment.
In Victoria, electricians who are not contractors hold electrical work licences. No electrician in Mornington is permitted to do electrical work without an electrical license. Electrical work licences are issued in different classes. The kind of electrical job the holder may legally perform is printed on the front of his or her licence, confirming his or her specific qualifications.
Because electrical contractors and workers perform highly skilled work, at times involving confidential information or access to private areas, Victorian state regulations are increasingly geared toward protecting consumers who engage them. Laws mandating that police must share criminal intelligence with the government regulators who license electrical workers aim to ensure that an electrician in Mornington will be a person of confidence, as well as possessing high-level technical skills.
It is easy to learn whether or not the electrician you are considering is licensed. You can a contact an electrical industry association, like Master Electricians Australia or the National Electrical and Communications Association to check qualifications, or confirm the license on the Victorian Government website.
By taking these simple measures, you can always be certain your electrician in Mornington is safe and qualified!
