Professional Electrician Course

There are a number of different qualifications needed to become a professional electrician, each with its own relevant training course. However, we at the Electrician Academy have devised a fast, efficient way to gain all of these qualifications by combining them into one all-inclusive electrical course. Our Professional Electrician Course is an incredibly comprehensive training package that will equip you with the skills and the qualifications needed to work as a professional electrician.

Our accredited training centre has everything you’ll need to complete your training. From experienced teaching staff and up-to-date equipment to practical workshops based on real-life scenarios, the Electrician Academy offers a level of expertise that you won’t find elsewhere.

Professional Electrician Course – Details:

While studying the various modules included on this course back-to-back is the fastest way of becoming qualified, we understand that not everyone can commit to that.

  • Part P of the building regulations for electrical installation.
  • Electrical installation pre-work survey/inspection.
  • Electrical installation safe isolation procedures.
  • Identifying unsafe electrical situations.
  • Electrical test procedures.
  • Installing and replacing electrical components.
  • Electrical test results and completing Electrical Certificates for clients (e.g. landlords and local authorities).
  • Electrical installation in special locations.
  • Understanding electrical circuit requirements.
  • Installing lighting and electrical circuits.
  • Visual inspections of electrical installations.
  • Functional testing and the correct procedure.

What Modules Are Included On This Course?

As you make your way through our Professional Electrician Course, you will cover the following essential modules / qualifications:

Foundation Training on Electrical Principles and Domestic Electrical Installation

During this period you will be learning how to rewire a house (including all lighting, power and earthing) among many other basic domestic electrical tasks.
