The Stroma Group has seen considerable growth during recent years, expanding the organisation further to offer a wider range of services to our customers. With our 15th anniversary celebrations taking place in 2017, we are enthusiastic to share our business milestones with our partners and clients. In particular, Stroma Certification has seen its installer certification scheme develop from strength-to-strength, growing our numbers of certified installers to become more established within our marketplace.
Following on from winning the Installer Certification Body of the year award and accomplishing the fastest rate of membership growth within the installer industry, Stroma Certification achieved approved TrustMark scheme operator status back in 2015.
To celebrate our impending anniversary, we are revisiting our TrustMark achievement with this article for the time capsule series.
In 2015, Stroma Certification entered into a new partnership with TrustMark, a Government recognised scheme endorsing firms with the 'TrustMark' accreditation to give customers the reassurance and confidence of using reliable and specialised tradespeople.
Following a comprehensive assessment of our assessment processes regarding our installers, including policies and procedures, Stroma Certification was announced as an approved TrustMark scheme operator, offering their membership across a variety of industry trades – this included Air Conditioning Engineers, Heating Engineers, Roofers, Window installers and Glaziers, Electricians, Plasterers and Renders, Plumbers, Energy Saving Measures and Insulation.
Stroma Certification also became the first scheme operator to offer TrustMark membership for Legionella Certification and DEA Certification schemes. We are proud to be pioneers within our industry and remain committed to helping our installer members to thrive within their trade and industry.
For only £50+VAT a Stroma certified installer can add TrustMark to their certification membership with Stroma Certification.
By becoming associates of the TrustMark membership, our certified installers are able to hold the TrustMark badge as proof of affiliation to the Government endorsed standard. Members are then listed on the TrustMark website as approved tradesman and are able to advertise their services and details on a secured database; this is accessible for customers to find professionals with good trading practices, technical competence and customer service.
To further guarantee the TrustMark accreditation, all members are regularly inspected through a vetting system to reassure customers that the level of professionalism and service they receive are upheld to the approved standard.
Predominantly, the scheme is used to protect customers against rogue traders by providing accredited trade professionals, but it is also used by members who wish to differentiate themselves from the competition.
If you are an existing Stroma member you can add TrustMark by calling our friendly installer team on 01977 665 420( ext .607 ) . Alternatively, you can apply for TrustMark membership via our website.
Stroma is delighted to be celebrating our 15th anniversary in 2017 and would like to thank our clients, members, partners and friends for your ongoing support.
