We formed to keep our members independent and to set standards chimney sweeps must reach to become a member. Thus improving the knowledge and safety of chimney sweeps and customers across the UK. Thereby giving customers a better service and a name they can recognise and trust.
APICS was formed in April 2002 and our logo was registered in June 2002. APICS is a friendly organisation, recognising that chimney sweeps are independent and should be allowed to get on with their daily work without interference.
To update the knowledge concerning rules, regulations, techniques and equipment. APICS has a Continued Professional Development scheme (CPD) which applies to all members.
APICS will always endeavour to engage a guest speaker at its meetings to enhance members’ knowledge.
APICS is dedicated to raising general awareness of the dangers of Carbon Monoxide to all.
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the sweeps course. It was very interesting and informative. I know I will be in touch pestering you with questions about one thing or another (hope that’s OK), as there is a lot more to this game than I thought!
