Being a member of a Competent Person Scheme (CPS) is essential for every sensible installer. Self-certifying installations becomes part and parcel of everyday working life, and Competent Person Schemes help you to get the job done.
So, we want to ask you…
What do you get from your Competent Person Scheme?
For many, it serves its purpose. It’s a membership that is required to help you function as a quality, reliable installer. You pay the monthly fees for a simple, straightforward membership, and that’s where the service stops.
At Certass, we take a different approach to CPS. Ours is designed by tradespeople, for tradespeople, offering you more than just a simple membership.
With Certass you get…
A whole package of benefits for your installation company – all for free.
We make sure that you get more out of your Competent Person Scheme membership, so you receive the very best scheme, while receiving a whole host of extras.
These benefits include:
- Free listing on our ‘Find an Installer’ search for homeowners
- Free consumer ratings service
- Free Certass Trade Association membership
- Free unique company profile page
- Free personalised Certass and Certass TA logos
- Free Joblogic software package licence
- Free legal, tax, HR and health & safety advice
- Free technical and installation advice
We have the tools for installers
With a complete package of free benefits, our CPS gives you the tools you need to install with confidence and grow your business.
Membership to the Certass Trade Association
The Certass Trade Association acts as your voice in the industry and is there to provide you with added help, advice and guidance as an installer.
With your free membership, you will receive free access to legal, tax, HR and health & safety advice through the business support package, along with up-to-date industry information, training and technical support.
A digital toolkit
We have a toolkit of free, practical online services designed to help you create a professional online presence without any hassle. Together, these tools form part of our Digital Support Package and include a unique company profile page, option to receive customer ratings & reviews and personalised Certass and Certass TA logos.
We’ve also teamed up with Joblogic to help your business to operate digitally, with a free software package licence. It’s a full-service project management system that helps to make receiving payments from your customers even easier.
Member’s IT System
To make self-certifying your installations easier, you can register each job on our Member’s IT System when you’re out and about. It lets you see all your information at once as well as the option to bulk-upload your jobs from your own database.
We know that for many installers, you need certification that covers more than just windows and doors.
Lots of installers cover installation work across multiple trades, such as fitting conservatories and roofline. For this, we have the CQ-Assured Scheme that’s designed to give your customers the confidence when choosing you to complete jobs in these areas.
This scheme includes added benefits including free TrustMark membership, low-cost public-liability & business insurance, and access to finance from one of the UK’s leading home improvement finance providers.
