Electrical Worker FAQS

  • My employer has asked me to apply for a Licence, why do I need it?

    The Licence to Practise (LtP) Initiative requires that only licenced electrical workers are employed to undertake electrical installation work on behalf of Government Clients. The LtP Initiative applies to all appropriate NI Government Construction contracts from 1 February 2016. Requirements that the Main Contractor, Electrical Contractor and Electrical Workers register with an LtP System will be included in procurement and contract documentation issued after that date.
