Course Duration:  1 Day

Course Dates:

Monday 6th December

Cost: £250.00 + VAT inc exam fee


The primary aim of this one-day knowledge-based level 3 qualification is to enable practising electricians, operating in the domestic environment, to gain an understanding of how electrical installations in dwellings must comply with all relevant Building Regulations.  This qualification does not deal with how to meet the technical electrical requirements when carrying out such work, and therefore we are only able to take on qualified electricians with the appropriate knowledge and skills for this one-day course.


Entry Requirements

This course is for qualified and experienced electricians and electrical installers who want to upgrade their knowledge and qualifications to encompass the Part P building regulations so that they are able to register with a governing body and work as a Part P compliant installer within the domestic industry; therefore, due to the experience recommendations, this qualification is restricted to 18+ learners.  To summarise, the aim of this qualification is to:

  • Meet the needs of electricians and electrical installers who work in the Building Service Engineering sector, who need to be able to demonstrate knowledge of the Building Regulations for electrical installations in dwellings and associated areas in England & Wales.

Please note that this qualification is only suitable for those practising their trade in England and Wales due to there being different regulations in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
