Ahead of Government legislation changes to the competent person scheme being enforced in June, Swish Window and Door Systems has provided a simple and cost effective way for installers to comply.
The main changes to the current competent person schemes are installers and surveyors must demonstrate Minimum Technical Competence (MTC), and companies must provide an insurance backed guarantee to domestic customers.
Members of Swish Window and Door Systems Authorised Installer Network can simply register jobs online to issue the insurance backed guarantee. Certass, the network’s competent person scheme partner, will arrange to assess the installer for minimum technical competency and issue the MTC card.
“As well as helping installation companies to sell more, Swish Window and Door Systems Authorised Installer network is also there to cut some of the red tape for customers,” says business development manager Eilidh Hudson. “Unlike other networks there’s no CPS joining fee and MTC assessment is at a reduced price to keep the costs down for Authorised Installers.”
There’s another bonus for Swish Window and Door Systems’ customers. For every insurance backed guarantee they register, installers earn money to spend on any marketing they want.
“Making it easier for customers to get their MTC card is a great example of how Swish Window and Door Systems helps installers” continues Eilidh. “There are even more benefits on the way soon for members of the Authorised Installer network.”
