Course overview

Why take this course?

This 1 day course is aimed to provide practising electricians, already operating in the domestic environment, to upgrade their existing knowledge to incorporate an understanding of how electrical installations in dwellings must comply with all relevant Building Regulations.

The government approved Document P; (electrical safety) came into effect on the 1st January 2005. This meant that mainstream work of domestic electrical installers became subject to the requirements and procedures associated with Building Control for the first time.

Since 2005, Domestic electrical installers have needed to gain an understanding of the requirements that apply to the building work they carry out in connection with their electrical work, and they need to understand the way that Building Control works and the procedures that need to be followed.

This qualification does not cater for those that need to learn how to meet the technical requirements when carrying out such work therefore we are only able to take on qualified electricians with the appropriate knowledge and skills on this 1 day course.
