CORGI Fenestration maintains a register of skilled locksmiths All our skilled locksmiths have undertaken a City & Guilds/ GQA accredited course and have been DBS checked.
Skilled Locksmiths carry a CORGI Fenestration Skilled Locksmith ID card. Consumers can verify their status by checking the incorporated QR code
We are pleased to announce that as part of a group of like minded companies from across the sector, we are in the process of developing a range of NVQ’s for Locksmiths. It is hoped that these qualifications will be available later this year. This is in response to market pressure to recognise professionalism in the locksmith sector, provide access to CSCS skills cards and ensure that as a sector we are ready for the challenges that will undoubtedly face us.
Our installer scheme covers installation, repair & maintenance, refurbishment.
The CORGI Fenestration Installer Scheme comprises:-
Online notification: which is quick, easy and done just the once (no need to repeat the process for insurance purposes). Notify all the work carried out with no need to worry if it is self certifiable or not – we will sort it and send the building control notifications for you.
Financial protection: Government requires financial protection to be provided for works covered under building regulations compliance. It does not require this to be an insurance policy. CORGI Fenestration provides a Fenestration Compliance Guarantee, so there’s no need to purchase additional IBG’s.
Compliance certificate: in addition to the building compliance certificate issued which is exactly the same as other CPS certificates, installers’ customers will also receive a CORGI Fenestration installation certificate covering all the work undertaken. Both will be delivered digitally, which results in a quicker service for the homeowner. Not only that but replacement certificates are available free of charge.
Excellent service & customer care: CORGI Fenestrations offers help, advice and support to its registered installers and represents their interests with government departments.
Use of the CORGI Fenestration Quality Mark: Registered installers can show customers they are one of the best in the business. The CORGI name is recognised by 71% of consumers* – much higher recognition levels than for CPS operators and other membership schemes.
RateYourInstallation: a TripAdvisor style customer feedback scheme with installer right of reply, for no extra cost. As well as enabling consumers to take informed decisions, RateYourinstallation also allows companies to analyse the performance of their depots and teams as well as publicising their consumer ratings.
Notify other products: because CORGI Fenestration covers more than just windows and doors. Homeowners selling their properties will have a record and evidence of all the work they have had done – not just the limited scope of CPS.
The CORGI Fenestration Skills Card: this demonstrates you hold a recognised vocational qualification or if you are a Skilled Locksmiths that you have undertaken a City & Guilds/ GQA accredited course. Personal ID cards are issued and can be checked by the consumer via the QR code.
Code of Conduct: All registered companies agree to abide by the CORGI Fenestration Code of Conduct which includes selling techniques, environmental issues and customer service.
Policed scheme: we have a dedicated team making sure no-one can use the CORGI Fenestration name without being fully registered, protecting the position of other CORGI Fenestration installers.
