Installer benefits

Certass is promoting its competent person scheme (CPS) package to installers, claiming that switching from an existing CPS is simple, “with straightforward admin and friendly, helpful support on the end of the phone”.

Certass CPS benefits include free membership of Certass Trade Association, low-cost public liability and business insurance, and access to finance. There is also the option to add on workmanship certification for other building fabric trades, and free access to dispute resolution services. Furthermore, installers can get leads direct from homeowners through Certass’s online ‘Find an Installer’ service.

Jason Clemmit, managing director of Certass, said: “Competent person schemes are an essential part of any installer’s remit, so it makes sense to give them a whole package of extras that adds real value for their business. As well as cost-savings on things like insurance, members get access to exclusive member discounts and offers.

“Installers can also get leads from homeowners through our digital support initiatives. We know that most homeowners are checking out companies online before they buy, and our new digital support package helps members get noticed and rated by previous customers.”

Membership starts at £23.95 +VAT per month.
