Association of Professional Independent Chimney Sweeps

APICS was formed to keep our members independent and to set the standards sweeps must reach to become a member, improving the knowledge and safety of chimney sweeps and customers across the country, thereby giving customers a better service and a name they can trust.

APICS is a friendly organisation, recognising that chimney sweeps are independent and should be allowed to get on with their daily work without interference.


Take a look at our training options in 2024!

A completely new dynamic course has been developed for chimney sweeps.
Plus two NEW Courses available for sweeps: APICS Refresher Course & Chimney Lining Comparison Course

PLEASE NOTE: APICS will be offering training in the North and Midlands, as well as in Tiverton.
