Serious question: Have you ever considered or wanted to be a chimney sweep in your lifetime? Do you have any ancestral connections to the chimney sweeping profession and would like to experience first hand how your great-great-great-great grandparents did their work, but with none of the hazardous practices of the Victorian era and all of the conveniences of 21st Century technology? If you answered “Yes” to any of those questions, or if you’re just plain curious about what this is all about, then continue reading!
While you aren’t legally obliged to pursue any particular chimney sweep training, or hold any qualifications in order to join the trade, it would be in your best interests to join up with one of the many recognised associations that exist across the world today before you pick up the broom. Why? Well just listen to this.
Achieving membership status with an official chimney sweep association, you can reap all of the benefits that come with the job direct from said association, including the following items: free advertising space for your new job, trade discounts to buy and restock your equipment, and most importantly of all, access to an extensive training programme to educate you in the highest minimum standards for chimney sweeping in the UK, which in turn will give you a chance to gain further qualifications in the chimney sweeping industry further down the line.
With all this at your disposal, you will be able to provide the highest level of service to your potential customers, while having the support and experience of an entire national trade organisation to help you every step of the way! Said customers will have the reassurance of knowing that they’ll be receiving a high standard of service and expert knowledge of a registered, trained professional, who will never fail to give them sound advice from the start of a job to the finish.
So I ask again: Have you ever wanted to be a chimney sweep? Then make sure that you sign up for a membership today.
