Domestic Electrician Qualifications for Experienced Installers

If you are an electrician in-training with existing knowledge of electrical theory and testing, then you are probably looking for a course than can provide the greatest amount of information in the shortest possible timeframe. If that’s the case, our Domestic Electrician course for experienced installers should be just right for you.

Though it is aimed at students with prior experience, this is not a course that takes half measures. Completion of the course will provide you with two of the industry’s most important electrical qualifications, and most importantly, each one will be the full qualification rather than just a fraction of it.

Teaching takes place at one of our City & Guilds approved training centres, which are located within easy travelling distance of London, South Wales, and most of Southern England. Our purpose-built workshops will put you through the real life scenarios that you’ll encounter as a fully-qualified domestic electrician, and you’ll receive up-to-date training from our experienced electrical tutors.

City & Guilds 2382-12 17th Edition Wiring Regulations

This second must-have qualification deals with your understanding of current wiring regulations, and is perhaps the most recognised of all domestic electrician qualifications. Following thorough theory lessons from our experienced teaching staff, you will be ready to take the examination required as proof of your understanding of how these regulations should be applied in every day electrical work.

Is this the course right for me?

While no formal qualifications are required to take this course, it is designed for those with some prior knowledge of electrical theory, testing, and using an electrical test meter. This is vital as the course does not teach you how to use a meter or the theory behind an electrical installation. What it will teach you is how to efficiently use the meter and what to do during a domestic installation.

If you have little or no electrical experience / knowledge, our Domestic Electrical Installation Course for Beginners may be a more suitable choice.
