Core competencies gained

Practical Skills: You will gain practical skills necessary when working on domestic electrics. You’ll have your own work space and consumer unit and you’ll build lighting circuits, socket outlet circuits, cooker circuits, shower circuits and more. You’ll learn about earthing and bonding and how to use the tools the right way. You’ll learn installation theory such as cable selection and for the assessment you’ll build circuits to demonstrate that you’ve learned so far.

Wiring & Building Regulations: You will learn about wiring and building regulations the right way - avoiding any repetition and making sure you retain the key knowledge. Your domestic electrical installations will be seen to be compliant with Part P of the Building Regulations as well as the latest wiring regs. Every active electrician must have their wiring regs certificate (18th Edition).

Inspection & Testing Skills: A mix of theory and hands on work ensures you are capable of inspection and testing on your own work. This doesn’t allow you to carry out periodic inspection and testing, for that you’ll need to add C&G 2391. Speak with one of our team for more information regarding C&G 2391
