What is it and who should join?

SELECT operates a probationary Membership scheme for those companies that cannot, at the time of a Membership enquiry, meet our full membership criteria. The scheme is principally aimed at new start businesses but can also apply to companies who do not yet have a suitably qualified electrician.

What are the benefits of being a probationary scheme Member?

  • Access to unrivalled advice and guidance from our professional staff on all aspects of running an electrical contracting business;
  • Receipt of our Members monthly mailshot and CableTalk magazine which covers legal, technical, contractual, health & safety and training matters;
  • Use of our BS 7671 17th Edition Inspection & Testing sheets (These show you are a Member of the SELECT probationer scheme);
  • Access to our non-member stationery (without the SELECT logo);
  • Price concessions for SELECT training courses; and
  • Access to the membership information pages of the SELECT website.

Probationer scheme companies shall NOT:

  • Be considered as full members of SELECT
  • Purport to be a member of SELECT
  • Use or display the SELECT logo
  • Be able to purchase SELECT branded stationery or publications
  • Be able to become registered as an Approved Body/Approved Certifier of Construction under the Scottish Building Standards: Electrical Installations to BS7671 Certification Scheme

How long does the SELECT Probationary Membership last?

Registration to the scheme is for a twelve month period and you should ensure, before applying, that you will meet the full SELECT Membership criteria in that time frame.

How much does registration cost?

Probationary membership costs £200 plus VAT. Scheme participants who apply for full membership within the period of their registration may be entitled to a part-refund of their probationary fee upon becoming a full SELECT member.
