SELECT introduces Conditional Membership during restrictions

Electrical trade body SELECT has introduced an innovative new enrolment scheme that allows firms to join the Scottish trade association and enjoy the benefits of full membership, despite ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

The move has been introduced in response to a surge of interest in membership since the pandemic struck, with companies recognising the wealth of guidance offered by trade bodies in a time of crisis.

To be considered for membership, applicants must now satisfy two additional criteria – the nominated Qualified Supervisor must have a current SJIB (ECS) Grade Card and completed updated training in BS 7671:2018 Requirements for Electrical Installations 18th Edition. The technical assessments necessary for membership are now being carried out remotely.

Conditional Members have full access to all member services, subject to conditions. At the earliest opportunity an in-person technical assessment will be carried out to confirm full membership.

SELECT has already welcomed ten new Conditional Members into the scheme since its launch, with dozens of other applications currently being processed and awaiting online technical assessments.
