The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps is nationally recognised in the industry as the ‘Gold Standard’ of Chimney sweeping qualifications. Once a sweep candidate has completed the intensive four-day Guild course, passed the 90 minute written exam, followed by the the extensive practical exam and assessments, he/she is ‘mirrored’ to a qualified, training Guild sweep to gain ‘in situ’ experience and use their new-found skills while being carefully assessed in a working environment over several working days. Once this stage is successfully completed the candidate returns to the Guild to be finally assessed by one of the Guild’s qualified assessors over a number of chimney sweeps in the field. Only then can the candidate be awarded the Guild Certificate and be able to practice as a qualified chimney sweep using the logo’s of the Guild.
