What is an electrical contractor?

Electrical contractors include individuals or companies undertaking electrical installation, repairs, or maintenance work. To be registered as an electrical contractor, the applicants need to have the required knowledge, skills, and experience to perform electrical work.

Difference between electrical contractors and electricians

Electrical contractors are permitted to run a business and employ licensed electricians. They also hold more qualifications and the REC license. Electricians are qualified to perform electrical services and work under electrical contractors. They do not hold insurance and cannot run their own business.
