What is a licensed ‘A’ grade electrician?
A trained individual who can work to the following acts and conditions:
- Electricity Safety Act
- Electricity Safety (Installations) Regulations
- Electricity Safety (Registration and Licensing) Regulations
- AS/NZS 3000: Wiring Rules and all other standards applicable to your work including referenced sections of the Building Code of Australia (BCA)
- The Victorian Electricity Distributors Service and Installation Rules
An electrician cannot carry out electrical installation work for profit, gain or reward, unless they hold a current Registered Electrical Contractor (REC) licence.
Get a Certificate of Electrical Safety
In Victoria, a Certificate of Electrical Safety (COES) must be provided within 30 calendar days of electrical installation work being carried out. This is to ensure compliance with:
Not providing a Certificate of Electrical Safety and not complying with the requirements outlined in these documents can result in fines and disciplinary action against electricians. Therefore, your A-Grade Electrician should provide you with a Certificate of Electrical Safety upon completion of work. If they do not, contact them and insist that one be provided. Should they refuse, you can raise a complaint with Energy Safe Victoria <http://www.esv.vic.gov.au/>.
Ask your ‘A’ grade electrician about their license number.
All A-Grade Licensed Electricians are issued with an individual licence number. This licence number identifies your electrician as a registered and qualified service provider. It also entitles them to perform all electrical work without supervision in Victoria.
If an electrician cannot produce a licence number upon request, then they may not be licensed. In which case, you should not contract them.
Why should you always use an A - Grade Electrician?
A-Grade Electricians are fully qualified electrical professionals. They are licensed to work unsupervised and to sign off on all electrical works on behalf of a Registered Electrical Contractor (REC).
Choose A-Grade Licensed Electricians and you get:
- A fully qualified electrical professional
- The highest standards of electrical safety
- A fully insured service provider: we have $20 million coverage to enable work on larger properties.
