The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps was formed over 20 years ago and is a â€œnot for profitâ€ trade association for professional chimney sweeps.
From the start the Guild set the highest standards for training and assessment of its member sweeps. This continues today with the most comprehensive training and mentoring programme for new sweeps anywhere in the UK. A broad range of additional professional training for existing members is also available.
Periodic refresher courses are now mandatory to keep members up to date and consumers safer. We are the only association that represents the UK sweeping industry at an international level.
We take a very active role in promoting safety and in particular the issues surrounding Carbon Monoxide awareness. Charity fundraising and promotion of these issues helps keep us all safer.
