Course overview

Why take this C&G 2397 Domestic Electricians Course

This new course will be ideal for those wishing to develop skills in a live working environment whilst attending regular training in a structured programme. You will benefit from our unique and specialist experience in training domestic installers as well as the hands on experience working on real jobs.

C&G 2397 Domestic Electricians Course Structure

This course is still to be finalised. However the course will be run in a very similar way to the current electricians NVQ.

As such it will involve:

  • Knowledge units taught in a classroom and workshop environment
  • You will need to produce a portfolio of work
  • Your work will be assessed on site
  • You may need to take final assessment in an accredited assessment centre

2397 Course Content

The course content is yet to be finalised, however it is likely that this course will broadly cover the following areas in relation to a domestic installation:

  • Health & Safety
  • Environmental Technologies
  • Job organisation and management
  • Installation
  • Inspection and testing
  • Fault finding


Due to the nature of this NVQ it is likely that funding will be available. We will post more information as soon as it is ready.
