Domestic Electrical Course

Our all-inclusive Domestic Electrical Installation course teaches students of all backgrounds the essential skills and theory needed to become a domestic electrician. This includes working on lighting, power sockets, cooker circuits and fuse boards, plus the importance of using an electrical test meter.

What makes our domestic electrical installer course stand out from the rest? We not only teach you how the work should be carried out, we teach you why it is important to do these things the way we teach them. Existing electricians who train with us may be surprised at the mistakes they have subliminally made over the years!

Our accredited training centres are dotted across the UK, and they are within easy travelling distance of London, South Wales, and most of Southern England. Here you’ll learn the skills required to gain your Part P and 17th Edition qualifications – essential for becoming an electrical installer, and proof of your ability to safely and effectively install electrical appliances and equipment.

Domestic Electrician Training – Course Details:

While theory learning is important for budding electricians, it is no substitute for practical teaching, and this is why we strive to provide students with as much workshop training as possible. A total of 70% of the course time is dedicated to practical training, while the remaining 30% comprises classroom theory study.

The domestic electrical installer course can be taken as individual modules or back-to-back, training you to the standard of a General Domestic Installer in about 3 weeks in the latter case. All equipment and tools are provided, but any books required for the course will need to be purchased before you begin.

Our domestic electrical installation course is made up of these two modules:

Part P Building Regulations & Foundation Electrical Training

This course assumes each and every student has little to no existing electrical knowledge, and so the best place to start is the essential Part P qualification. Through a blend of theory and practical training, you’ll cover all the criteria needed to complete the assessment and find yourself readily qualified and able to join a Competent Person scheme.

City & Guilds 2382-12 17th Edition Wiring Regulations

Knowledge of current wiring regulations is something every employer looks for in a competent electrician, which is why our course includes this vital qualification. By achieving the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations certification, you’ll not only have proof of your understanding but also an excellent ground for future employment.
