    research tradies’ qualifications and certifications

This information is usually available on their website or can be obtained by contacting the licensing authority directly. A licensed tradie has met certain standards and regulations, giving you peace of mind that they are qualified for the job.

    In addition to licensing, consider the tradie’s qualifications and certifications. Do they have any specialised training or certifications in their field? Are they a member of any professional associations? These credentials can demonstrate a tradie’s commitment to ongoing education and professional development.

    When researching a tradie’s qualifications, also take the time to review their portfolio or gallery of past work. This will give you a sense of their style, attention to detail, and overall quality of workmanship. Look for projects that are similar to yours to get a better idea of their capabilities.

    By thoroughly researching a tradie’s qualifications and certifications, you can ensure that you hire someone who is skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable in their field.
