SELECT has been serving Scotland’s electrical sector for more than a century.
With nearly 1,250 member businesses, employing more than 15,000 staff, we are the country’s largest construction trade association.
Formed in 1900, we set and monitor technical standards, develop and support industrial relations, and improve health and safety across the sector.
Through our membership of umbrella bodies, we also work to improve trading conditions by lobbying on issues such as payment and procurement.
We are also committed to regulation of the industry and the introduction of Protection of Title for electrician.
Apprentice and lifelong training is another key priority, with member firms employing over 3,500 apprentices. In addition, our own training centre, based at our office near Edinburgh, delivers courses for more than 3,500 electricians each year.
