Trade Associations

Here at Local Heroes we make sure our tradespeople are properly qualified so they can work to the highest industry standards.

To do this, we work in partnership with trade associations who are responsible for setting the bar when it comes to professional qualifications in the trades industry.

The certifications and qualifications they define make sure our tradespeople are suitably skilled and ready to tackle any job you need them to do.

In each sector we operate in, we work with trade associations that have a unique understanding of what skills and best practices are required. We’re thankful to work so closely with them. Together, we can ensure that across the country our Local Heroes and our customers are safe and satisfied.

These are the trade associations we work with. Take a look at each to read more about the great work they do.
