How To Become An Electrician by Rebus Training

If you are thinking about becoming an electrician, there are some things you should consider. The electrical field is a growing one and it takes time and training to become a certified electrician. You may be working on a home remodelling one day and a large construction project the next, which means you will need to know exactly what types of electrical issues you might face in many different situations. Here are a few tips and some advice on entering the electrical field.

Understand The Job

The first thing you should do is learn about what it involved in being an electrician. Depending upon what type of work you do, these requirements may vary, but you can still get a basic understanding of the type of work electricians perform. There are two basic types of electrical work: commercial and residential. Each of these has distinct codes and tasks. It is important to learn about both and decide if you want to specialize in one area or be trained to do both kinds of work. It helps to be able to answer the following questions with a Yes:

  • Do you enjoy working with your hands?
  • Can you work in confined spaces?
  • Do you enjoy working outside?
  • Do you like heights?
  • Could you work on a ladder or a lift all day?
  • Do you enjoy working with others?
  • Do you enjoy learning new skills?

If you can answer yes to these questions, you may make a good electrician.

However, understanding the job also means getting the right training! Here at Rebus Training, we specialise in 17th edition courses, Part P courses and all kinds of basic electrician training for the Stoke, Manchester, and Birmingham areas.

The Job

The electrician’s job typically includes the following:

  • Repairing, maintaining, and installing components and equipment in compliance with state and national electrical standards, codes, and regulations.
  • Knowledge of electrical equipment, tools, and materials.
  • The operation of various testing equipment to locate types of malfunctions and determine how to fix them.
  • Ability to work off a ladder for an extended length of time.
  • Knowledge of the national and state electrical standards, codes, and regulations.
  • Ability to pass a background check, drug screen, and physical abilities test.
  • Good verbal and written communication.
  • A valid drivers’ license.

Get The Right Training

Joining an apprenticeship program is the best way to get trained. In this program, you will learn all the technical requirements of becoming an electrician. It is hard to learn these while on the job since teaching a skill while performing a task can cause problems and add to the time it takes to complete the job.

While master electricians can teach certain tasks while on the job, some of the more technical tasks such as calculations are best taught in a controlled environment. An apprenticeship program provides you the training and skills necessary to go to work in the electrical field when you graduate.

Once you graduate and get hired, chances are you will still be apprenticed to a master electrician for a time. The master electrician can teach you the little tips of the trade that will make you a better electrician.

Tips On How To Find The Best Storage And Removal Company

Deciding to move to a new city or relocating your business to another place can undoubtedly be one of the most challenging things you can deal with. But you can keep stress to a minimum by hiring the right storage and removal company. With a team of specialists, the company should be able to help you relocate to your new destination without any hassle, all while ensuring that your belongings are secure. The following are some tips to help you find the right storage and removal company for your needs.

Storage Facilities

Most homeowners who plan to move their home to a new place find storage facilities extremely helpful. Storage units are used to keep your belongings while you’re still fixing things in your new home. Even businesses can benefit immensely by using these storage facilities. It is best to find a company that offers different kinds of self-storage units such as modular, mobile and container storage units.

If you plan on storing your belongings for a long period of time, then a modular storage unit is your best option. These units can be accessed by renters any time they want. They are monitored 24/7 to ensure that all your possessions are kept securely inside the storage facilities.

Mobile storage is a better choice if you want a storage solution for the short term. For example, you can keep your belongings in a mobile storage unit until you finish making space in your new location. The storage and removal company will send a mobile storage to your place to pick up the items you want to keep in the unit. Once you want your items back, the company will send the mobile storage again.

Container storage units are basically the same as modular storage options. The primary difference is that container units are much larger, making them the best choice for keeping bulky items such as huge appliances. You can also access these units anytime you want.

Removals

A good storage and removal company understands that the process of relocating can involve a lot of stressful things, so they ensure all the heavy lifting are taken off your shoulders. It’s also a good idea to leave this task in the hands of professionals, particularly when you need to transport fragile items. Be sure to speak with the company consultant about their entire process and whether they cover for any potential damage to your possessions. Look locally for your firm – they usually have better knowledge of the area and do deals – for example, if you live in Cheshire, try this removals Cheshire firm.

The relocation process becomes even more complicated when you need to cross from one state to another. If you find yourself in this situation, it is highly recommended to look for a company with an established national network. This makes interstate removals so much more convenient, secure and efficient. Also, check whether the company uses the appropriate moving vehicles and storage units to ensure your items are secure during the entire process.

These are just a few useful tips to help you find the best storage and removals company. Don’t forget to talk to multiple companies and compare their services and rates. Most companies should be able to provide you with a free quote, allowing you to see how much you need to spend for your relocation.

How to Find a Reliable Plumber: Whether You’re Based in California or Congleton!

Finding a plumber is an easy task. Finding a good plumber is not as easy but it is possible. The best way to be sure you got the best one is by starting early. This may not sound like good advice if you need one now so here is what you can do now.

Ask around. Get a few numbers from friends, relatives, neighbours and colleagues. People only recommend a person who did a good job. They will be sure to tell you about the disappointments they experienced so listen keenly. If many people speak ill of a particular plumber or plumbing company then avoid it. You may get a few glowing recommendations. If one number appears more than once among your circles, then you know you have a winner.

Consult another professional in the construction industry. If you recently rewired your house or repaired your roof then you have the contacts of these individuals. Ask them to recommend a good plumber they may know. They are most likely to pick the name of a friend. This is not a bad thing. If they were reliable then they will pick a plumber who will give you service that is similar to theirs. They will also be careful not to ruin the reputation that they have built with you.

If you are still unable to pick a choice then check how long the plumber has been in business. This should be relatively simple if he is registered. An experienced plumber should be able to answer most of your questions. It would also be wise to check out a union or registration body. They will have a list of every genuine plumber. They will also caution you against rogue dealers. Finally, if you are not sure who to pick, pick a plumber who is part of a company. A company is likely to be more accountable because they have a physical address and are registered.

Plumbing is, unfortunately, one of those markets and industries, that is often full of con-artists and cowboys. They are unethical and prey on the vulnerable who don’t know enough, or aren’t strong enough to argue, whilst surrounding by a pool of growing water from a leak. So when you have an emergency, or how do you ensure that the person you call to come and fix it ASAP is reliable and won’t overcharge as they believe it’s easy money?

The first option and probably the best, is to have a small list of recommended plumbers (and other emergency tradesmen) on-hand from friends and family – people who have been used before, preferably multiple times, and have a reputation for being fair, ethical and with good service. Plumbers in California or plumbers in Congleton will always rely on a great reputation – this is true all over the world, and so they are the ones to trust the most.

If you have no recommendations list, and you don’t have the time to ask around (lets imagine a growing pool of water in the kitchen!), then the first place you will want to look is online. But don’t jump straight into the plumbers websites themselves yet – instead head over to the Institute of Plumbing, which is an official website to improve plumbers and the way they work. This site also has a directory listing of every plumber, and you can search it fully – the most useful method being by postcode – so instantly you can see all plumbers in Congleton, or wherever you are!

YouTube is another emerging option for finding plumbers that can be reliable, with them taking the time and effort to actually bother putting a video together – see this example of plumbers in Congleton:

When you have begun ringing a few people, make sure you ask them certain questions in order to gauge their professionalism. For example:

  • Ask how long they have been in the plumbing business, and how long they have had this particular company (to ensure they don’t constantly switch names)
  • For non-emergency work – as if they have previous jobs where you would be able to visit and inspect their work (helps rule out those who quit half-way through a job).
  • Does anybody recommend them and can you get their details?
  • Insured plumbers are a must – in case something goes wrong, you want to ensure they can fix it, no matter the costs (accidents do happen to even the best plumbers Congleton sometimes, so ensure your plumber is insured)
  • Do they belong to professional bodies in their industry – e.g. APHC – which regulate all plumbing and heating specialists, these professional bodies have codes of ethics and members must stick to them or they can be reported by you and face being kicked out!

Freeing Up Your Finances – A Guide To Pension Release and Reclaiming Packaged Bank Accounts

Have you noticed an increase in Facebook ads on your timelines for ‘Reclaiming packaged bank account charges’? We have! It seems to be the next big thing in claiming back unlawful charges, after the PPI charges. Our close friend, Chris Dando, owns one growing firm that specialise in a range of financial services. We’ve invited him to discuss some of his firms’ services today.

pig and poundsHi everyone. My company has a few different service lines, but basically serves 2 main channels: 1. Pension release and 2. Reclaiming back bank charges for packaged accounts.

So first let me explain about what pension release is, and our main website.

“My money! I need it now.” Congratulations, you’ve reached an age where your years of savings will start to pay off. Now it’s time for you to get an understanding of pension release, and what it means to you. You have looked at your pension pot and you like what you see, you’re ready to withdraw some money. Here are some things to keep in mind.

If you are 55 or older:

  • Lump sum
  • Annuity
  • Taxes

If you are under 55:

  • Tax Liabilities and/or penalties
  • Fees and/or commissions involved
  • Effect process on the remaining value

Is pension release right for me?

You’re 55 or over, haven’t reached the retirement age, and you’re thinking about digging into your pension pot.

It is highly recommended that you speak with your financial adviser or a qualified firm (like ours) before speaking to a pension release firm. A reason for that is, a regulated advice must follow certain rules and should only recommend a product suitable for you.

This will protect you if the product doesn’t happen to have your best interest at heart, or worse if the product itself was a scam made to lose your money and have someone else pocket your hard work.

If you’re under 55 there are still options for digging into your pension but keep in mind that because you have an agreement and you’re violating that agreement you’ll have to pay some liabilities and/or penalties for this action as high as 50-70% tax.

Early pension release

You may have seen it in a text, e-mail or even as a letter sent home, “pension release” promising a chance to take out a loan against your pension, and this maybe comes with fine print (or sometimes no print) that you will have a heavy tax bill of 50-70% of the withdraw.

Even if you claim to have had a misunderstanding or you were unaware you had broken tax rules, you offer to put the money back in your pension, you have paid fees to the company involved, or have spent all the money you have withdrawn; you will still have to pay tax.

While we understand that emergencies happen, before you decide to dig into the pension pot, keep in mind that going for an early pension release may be against your long-term financial interests.

What are my options?

You have some options for your pension release that you can consider; you can choose from annuity, big lump sum or small lump sums.

If your company has been around for a long time and you don’t see it going anywhere, on top of that your financially stable, then you would consider an annuity.

If that company is a little more on the fragile side, maybe in the auto or airline industry, you may want to think about lump sum where you can have full control of your money, and possibly invest some of it into an IRA. Find a financial adviser who will be able to handle this task and point you in the right direction. Or contact us at pensionsadviceuk.com

Now, on to reclaiming packaged bank account fees!

A packaged bank account or otherwise known as ‘paid for account’ is a set-up account which users pay an annual fee to an account that includes various insurance products. Other common names that are used to refer to packaged accounts include; upgraded, gold, premium and reward. An ideal packaged account covers benefits such as travel insurance, mobile phone insurance, airport lounge privileges, special rates on loans and overdrafts, breakdown coverage and reduced prices on various products and services. Although at least 1 person in every 5 bank customers has a packaged bank account, many have complained of being automatically enrolled without consent. To make it worse, some customers do not even know that they have such an account while others are misguided into believing that paid for accounts are mandatory especially when accessing other benefits such as home mortgage.

Since the monthly fee of most packaged bank accounts ranges between £8 and £25, any non-authorized payment of similar rate can signify a mis-sold. Fortunately, it is possible to raise a complaint and reclaim packaged bank account. In a reclaim settlement, customers who have paid for a packaged account but have never enjoyed the benefits can get a refund. For instance, a £25 consistent payment for 4 years can accrue £1200 which can be reimbursed after a successful complaint.

Our company provides a specialist website on each of these unique claim packages, which you can view here:

To avoid confusion or any inconvenience, it is important to know the reasons which can stand to reclaim packaged accounts. For example, getting a breakdown cover whereas you do not own a car is pretty ludicrous. Other customers are unable to access any of the benefits due to individual situations such as age, residence and employment. Further, in some cases the accounts are upgraded without prior notification or the customer was informed that he/she could not cancel the account. Matter fact, there are other places where clients can obtain the benefits for a cheaper price.

The first step that customers should follow in case of a mis-sold account is to raise a complaint at the bank. However, account holders should not be dissuaded to drop the matter if the bank refuses to refund the accumulated fee. Some banks have a habit of making customers think that they do not have a valid claim. It is, therefore, important to keep persisting with a complaint even if the bank does not uphold the refund. If still the client is not satisfied or does not get a response within 8 weeks, the last resort should be to seek the services of financial authorities especially those that offer free services. Other claim firms charge a fee of up to 30 percent of the reclaimed fee. However, it is recommended to find a well-established firm that charges minimum commission.

Every successful refund should include a judicial interest policy. The interest rate is about 8 percent of the total reclaim per year. The basis of the flat rate is that the customer would likely have gained interest if the account funds had not been reduced. Hence, it is mandatory for a reclaim packaged bank account to include additional interest amount on the accumulated payment.

The Importance of PAT Testing – Even for Small Businesses

We have a good friends who owns a Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) business. To be honest, until recently we have never really thought about it or considered it important, as we only own a few small businesses, and our biggest premises is a small retail shop, which isn’t much bigger than 10ft by 15ft! We always thought that PAT Testing was more for larger, office based companies. That was until our friend gave us a bit of a telling off, and so based on that we got fully checked and also asked him to write a small post for us (and you!) on the importance of having your appliances tested properly.

Why you need to get your equipment tested

If you own a small business, chances are you need PAT Testing. Portable Appliance Testing is the process of examining any electrical appliances and devices to make sure that when they are used, they are safe. The testing can be done by visual examination or more complex testing processes, usually carried out by an electrical professional.

By having your equipment tested regularly, then you reduce the risk of an accident occurring or a hazard developing.

Do I have to do this by Law?

This is a common question I get, and the answer is no. However, the law does state that it:

“electrical equipment is maintained so that danger is prevented and this is required by an employer. We don’t say the methods that should be used, or how often it should be performed. We recommend a risk-based approach, where an employer considers the type of equipment and how and what it is used for. Equipment that is moved around a lot (e.g. a vacuum cleaner), can be important to upkeeping a maintenance process which is safe and helps them meet their legal care duty.”

More can be read at the Health and Safety Executive website.

So you don’t have to do PAT, but you do have to keep your electrical equipment maintained, and one of the best ways to do this is with a regular PAT engineer to come to your site and evaluate your equipments safety in one go.

How often does something fail?

Very often actually, which usually surprises people! We use a red, amber, green system when we test, with green being a good pass, amber meaning something needs fixing or replacing – but should be OK to use, and red meaning the equipment is dangerous and shouldn’t be used until fixed or replaced (depending on the severity of the issue).

We often find red items on a visit, including some classic examples such as a health and safety trainer who was giving presentations on ‘fire safety and prevention’. We found his projector had the wires in the plug the wrong way around – which left him a bit red-faced! But we also get plenty of examples of worn-out equipment like kettles in an office, which have been used that many times that they need replacing as the heating elements are dangerous.

The point is, it doesn’t have to be somebody’s fault, or a major hazard waiting to explode – but it can be finding those small things that could become a higher risk, and remedying it before it does. It is all about prevention, as any good health and safety work should be.

How much does it cost?

Well every firm is different, but as a guide we do PAT Testing Manchester for around 50p per item tested, so an office with 280 items would cost £140. Other firms vary, but they are generally around the same cost. The main thing to ask is, is it worth having that extra reassurance and lowering your risk profile? Also, some insurance companies do insist it is done every year in order to cover your business, as it is again about reducing risk.

What is the process?

If you decide to get your work-place PAT assessed, an engineer will come to site on the day you choose, and begin using visual checks and specialist equipment to assess the safety of your portable appliances. They will score each one, and usually label them after with a label such as this:

PAT Label example

If an item fails, a red ‘warning’ label is usually used, and the equipment moved to a safe area so it cannot be used by accident. Once the entire testing process is complete, you should usually receive a summary report on all items tested and their status. The engineer should also be able to advise on amber or red items what the best actions to take are, and if repairs are possible.

Usually you need to do testing once every year to satisfy an insurance company, but if you want more regular testing it is up to you. Just remember, that PAT assessments can help to reduce the risk of an accident occurring.

Employing New Staff the Right Way!

Hi there readers!

Employing staff tips We often get emailed with people asking about the best way to employ new staff, and avoid the common pitfalls! It’s a tricky subject, however with the right advice, you can navigate it and come out with a winner. Here’s our advice:

  1. Make sure you know exactly what you want first. Many small business owners will know they need some help, but not what they actually want the person to do – they just expect to hire mini version of themselves, who will do whatever is asked of them. This can be problematic for both parties though, as it is unclear what is expected. The best thing to do is to sit down and make a list – start broad, and become more specific, around the tasks and general deliverables you will want from the new staff member. It may be worth while to jot a quick development plan too, to show how they get trained up over time and what they will progress from and to. Nothing too formal, but just along the lines of “0-6 months, learn the general business and take over management of invoices and payments. 6-12 months, learn the accounting procedures and become in charge of that”.
  2. Decide what type of person you are looking for. Have an idea in mind of they type of person you want to employ. Are you looking for someone who is young and can be moulded into the employee you want, or are you after a seasoned professional who can come in and do a job without your help? This will enable you as a small business owner to ensure you are getting the right fit, and narrow your candidate list down when it comes to interviews. You should also consider the fact you can be too specific – don’t rule out someone who looks good just because they aren’t an exact fit on your initial thoughts!
  3. Consider your budget. This is closely linked with number 2, as if you are after a seasoned professional, you need to check the latest salaries on offer in the market to ensure you get a decent employee. If you don’t have a great budget, why not consider employing an apprentice? They are cheap, young, and tend to stick around for many years if treated well and trained up properly in your career. We recently had help taking on an apprentice from the National Academy of Excellence (who are also based in the North-West). They managed to secure us government funding and we can honestly say our apprentice is one of the best we ever employed!
  4. Do the interview with a panel. Even if you have to ask a friend or family member, make sure you have at least 1 other view on the candidate. Sometimes we can miss or misinterpret things, and we need someone else to bounce an opinion off. This is important, as it also puts you in control if you get nervous, as you feel backed up and that you can really delve into an area if you feel it necessary.
  5. Follow up references. A lot of small business owners will take a reference, but then not bother to chase it up as they ‘trust’ their chosen employee and just want to get started – but this can be a huge mistake! Always chase the references up to ensure there is nothing hidden that you need to be aware of. It gives you peace of mind and assures you further you made the right choice.
  6. Develop your staff member. When in a small business environment, we can often suffer from being reactive, instead of proactive. However, we will most likely get a high turnover of staff if we do this, so take the time out to ensure you have a training plan in place, and perhaps enquire into an NVQ (you can get funding for these so it’s free a lot of the time!).

Hopefully these tips cover the main areas to ensure you get a great candidate. There are many more things to look out for, but f you follow these main points, you’ll be well on your way to employing someone who gives back far more than it costs you!

Instead, try to buy specific pieces that look good when incorporated with your other products so as to create a special design that nobody else can duplicate. Wait until the piece you want to buy goes on sale. Normally, both July and January are great months for furniture sales. Once you know exactly what you would such as, simply keep your eye on it. You never ever know when the price might be reduced or the company selling it decides to run a sale.

You could have acquired furniture items that have sentimental value and have been passed down lots of generations.

One way through which SEO Companies operate is by simply trying to get as much traffic to your business as possible. This would get the attention of as many people as possible towards your business.

Editing Or Re-developing Your Business Website

A good SEO company, such as CheshireSEO.org, would go through your website under your authorization and then go through every aspect of it. If the company realizes that there is something that needs changing so that your website performs better, they would suggest that to you so you authorize them to make changes on it. In the event that something is missing that would perhaps make your website perform better as an online business, then the SEO company would advise that you have the thing added to your website. They would normally do that for you. Every other factor that needs improving would be changed or have solutions provided to sort them out. Keywords used on the website would have to be revised to be aligned to the strategy that would then have been developed by the SEO company. The language on the website might as well have to be revised by the SEO company if the company thinks that your language is perhaps not good enough for success in regards to their strategy.

Internet And Social Media Marketing

Social Media for SEO

Services like marketing on the internet in general are also provided by SEO companies. This has always been narrowed to marketing on social media where there would certainly be a very huge base of an audience to be targeted. Marketing on social media requires social media marketing strategies as this is the only way for success to be achieved here. Successful strategies for social media marketing would be your only way to success in online business.

Other Services Offered By SEO Companies

Other activities that SEO companies do for you include: maintenance of rankings on the internet, monitoring results, reports ranking, and submission of directories.

Directories would normally first be submitted and then after that the SEO company would place a keen eye on the effect of the submissions on your website. Some sort of analysis would then be done to compare the rankings of keywords. This would involve the comparison of the initial status of the ranking of the keywords that you used and the current status. The results of this exercise would determine how much work would then be needed in order for the desired results to be achieved.

Advantages Of Well Established SEO Companies

There are certain benefits that your business would get from dealing with an SEO company that is well established, well, aside from the obvious roles that SEO companies play as already mentioned. If you live in Cheshire, for example, a good Cheshire SEO agency that is well established would offer you a number of packages that they have for you to choose one that you feel would suit you best. These packages contain the various approaches to online marketing, put down as strategies. The company would certainly play an advisory role towards assisting you pick on the one that would suit your kind of business best, but you will however have the final say on which strategy you think would suit you best. Not all of the SEO strategies would work for all types of businesses. This is therefore a tricky part because your company performance online would then depend on the suitability of the strategy you will have chosen to the type of business you run.

SEO campaigns always run for about 30 days (a month). After this duration has come to an end is when you review the performance of the SEO company that you assigned to do your online marketing job. If the marketing campaign reached a huge audience, then that would mean that the company did a good job in marketing your business online. Likewise, if the marketing job was not well done, then your business would still not reach a huge enough audience. This, you would be able to judge perfectly by looking at the amount of traffic to your website. If your online business is about selling products and services then you would perhaps look at the number of orders that your company will have had by the end of the campaign. If the number has increased then you will know that the campaign has served its purpose. On the other hand, if the end results you desired do not get fulfilled when the campaign period comes to an end then you might want to consider running the campaign again. An option would also be to change the SEO company.

NOTE
Before you hire the services of an SEO company, you should already have in mind goals and objectives. In the goals and objectives you should clearly put down all the results that you desire to obtain from having online marketing done for your business by professionals. You also need to note that it pays to be as explicit as possible so you tell the company everything that you desire from
