Roadshow to spark better business skills for tradies

Roadshow to spark better  business skills for tradies

Electrical industry peak body Master Electricians Australia is kicking off a roadshow this week to help promote a program to hone tradies’ business skills.

The first event is planned from 5.30pm-8.30pm today (February 11) in Cairns at at Endeavour Park Football Centre, Manunda.

It will launch MEA’s Master Program and share information on new amendments to the Wiring Rules and the new Battery Standard for Solar Installations.

MEA chief executive officer Malcolm Richards said the Master Program was developed to support electrical contractors build a safe, profitable and sustainable business.

 “Many electricians are highly skilled tradespeople but they have not had an opportunity to develop the required business skills necessary for success,” Mr Richards said.

“A lack of understanding of financials, how to market their business, and the lack of a plan are just a few of the things that can lead to business failure.

“Secondly, inefficient systems, procedures and documentation will lead to a business’s downfall.

“And lastly, trusted advisors. A lack of trusted advisors in the key areas of legal, financial, workplace relations and electrical business experience are critical resources a contractor needs to tap into.”

The Master Program is a 36-month program of support for electrical contractors and those who have been in business for a number of years.
