Electrical Part P
This course is suitable for those wishing to undertake domestic electrical installation work, either for themselves or any person wanting to be a Domestic Electrical Installer and undertake work for a paying customer.
Part P building regs were brought in by the government in 2005 to ensure electrical installations in domestic systems were safe and properly installed. To ensure this, they passed a law ensuring that anyone doing this work was competent. The Part P VRQ qualification that we operate on our electrical training Part P courses, is proof that you are competent.
New to the electrical industry?
If you are new to the industry, then you should be aware that this course alone will not give you the skills necessary for you to become a competent Domestic Installer.
We would strongly suggest that you would need to undertake the City & Guilds 2382 17th Edition and the City & Guilds 2394 & 2395 Inspection and Testing courses. These courses will offer you plenty of high quality training and qualifications to register with an Electrical Safety organisation such as NICEIC or ELECSA.
