If you’re looking for a career change, skilled trades can offer some lucrative benefits. You have the opportunity to work for yourself, build a business and be your own boss, but you can also gain a flexible work schedule.

With a history of electrics in the family, the drive to work for himself and set up his own limited company, Vimal recently completed our Domestic Electrician Package.

Part of the Package is our unique Experience Course, and as Vimal says “it’s as real as you can get to being out there.”

In 2040, the government will be banning all new diesel and petrol cars, in favour of electric vehicles in order to improve air quality.

With the sales of electric or hybrid cars expected to surge, we are looking at a variety of factors which first must be improved, such as the danger of the silent cars, charging points and new toxicity charges.

We are also looking at the positive impacts the electric industry can have for installers and homeowners, such as upskilling to include electric vehicle charging and the possibility of new feed in tariffs.

Wiha are well known for their ergonomic tool design, with soft finish handles that supply not only a good grip but also prevent back pain from developing.

This SlimVario VDE screwdriver set has all of these features, with the bonus of carrying 15 interchangeable SlimBits and the space to carry more.

Find out why we gave it 4 stars in our latest tool review!

Homeowners removing switches to decorate behind or changing socket covers may seem harmless, but actually it could have consequences if the integrity of the circuit is not tested before and after.

Both MK Electric and Click both offer a screwless range which tackle this problem, and make updating your sockets and decorating behind your switches safe and simple.

If you're interested in screwless solutions for your home or for your customers, read on to find out the difference between the brands and why going screwless is the safer choice.

Many assume it is just plumbers who use spanners on site, but they are also an extremely useful tool for electricians to have in their tool bag too.

“To carry an adjustable spanner with you means you’ve got one tool that does several jobs, whereas a set of 25mm gland spanners would just serve one purpose" our electrical trainer explains.

In our first tool comparison, we're looking at adjustable 6" spanners from OX Tools UK, Monument Tools and Bahco. Find out who the winner was...

If you are crimping regularly on site, either insulated or un-insulated, you need a reliable tool that ensures quick and precise crimping.

Weidmuller’s Ratchet Crimping Tool is especially ideal for multi strand cable, where you need to use bootlace ferrules.

They are strong, robust and an invaluable tool if you are doing it every day. “The action is ridiculously light and easy, whereas with other brands, you really need to press down”

Our customers come to us from all kinds of careers and skill levels, but some are bit closer to home.

Lewis had already been working alongside an electrician for two years when he decided to take the leap to get qualified and start his own electrical business.

“I came in on the first day thinking I was thinking I was ahead of the game, but I’ve actually still learnt so much more that it’s almost humbled me. I didn’t know half of what I did now.”
