This package consists of the 4 courses from our Bronze package plus PAT testing too. We have added this course package due to popular demand for both our Bronze and PAT testing courses.
Our Bronze+ course covers the foundation knowledge required to become a domestic installer plus 2 days training on PAT testing. This 20 day course usually runs 4 weeks in a row, however you can split the dates up should you wish and there is often a gap between the 18th edition course and the PAT testing course at the end. Ask any electrician and they will tell you that PAT testing is a great added skill and an excellent way to generate extra revenue along side the domestic work. So it makes sense for us to offer two of our most popular courses together in one simple package and with a great saving in price. All courses now include the brand new 18th edition course.
Who is it for?
This course is designed specifically for new entrants, candidates from allied trades such as painters, decorators, carpenters, bricklayers and really anyone looking to further their career in domestic electrical installation. This course is also ideal for those leaving the military looking to fund their training will ELC credits as the majority of this package is run at Level 3.
The course is very popular with those looking to set up a small business on their own providing services for homeowners in residential properties. It also enables you to carry out PAT testing (usually for companies and landlords) which can help fill your diary and your pocket with some extra income.
What does this course enable me to do?
One of the key goals for most installers is to register with a scheme provider such as the NICEIC or ELECSA. This course covers all the skills, training and qualifications required to do exactly that. You will walk out of our centre capable of carrying out a huge range of jobs in domestic dwellings and fully conversant with the latest wiring and Part P building regulations. As part of this course you can take a dedicated NICEIC / ELECSA Online Knowledge Assessment giving you a green light to move ahead and register with these scheme providers.
You will also be qualified in both the practical side of PAT testing as well as the management side too. This means you will be able to charge to go into premises, test portable equipment such as computers, toasters, kettles, microwaves and pretty much any appliance which is plugged in.
What's included? - You will achieve 5 C&G Qualifications
When completing this course you will achieve the following 5 qualifications:
These qualifications form the foundation knowledge required to competently install, inspect and test your own domestic installations compliant with the latest wiring and building regulations.

What does the bronze course allow me to do?
Our bronze course allows students to work and register as domestic installers, they will be able to carry out installations and initial verification and testing on their new installs and be able to issue all the relevant paperwork.
Can I split the weeks up?
We will try and be as flexible as possible when it comes to dates, we allow you to study in a 4 week block however if you need to split the weeks up this can also be arranged.
Can I pay in installments?
You can pay a deposit a then pay on the first day of each of the weeks you are training.
Can I register as a domestic installer after this course?
Yes indeed, this is a recognised route for you to register as a domestic installer. The scheme provider will require you have some level of hands on experience before you join. Various scheme providers will have different entry requirements and ways off assessing your competence. It is likely many scheme providers will ask you if you have 2 years experience before progressing your application. What intensity or continuity of experience, paid or otherwise is not clarified so scheme providers can also test your competetnce with an online knowledge assessment to ensure you have the required understanding to progress your application. As such we recommend for new entrants working with an experienced electrician to build up your experience.
How do I gain experience?
Most people that train with us on this course will build up their experience by doing the following things:
Doing small projects at home or with friends and family
Carrying out minor works and non notifiable jobs
For notifiable jobs they can work with building control to generate a Part P Certificate
Working with an exprienced electrician for more complex installs (Full time or Short contracts)
When you feel more confident and the demand for notifiable jobs increases you can then look to join a scheme as described above.
What are my limitations?
You will not be able to install in the commercial sector or install 3 phase cable.
You will not be able to carry out periodic testing without our 2394/5.
About Domestic Installer Schemes
Your acceptance on a Domestic Installers Scheme is the decision of the registration body and dependent on your skills, experience and knowledge level. Tradeskills4U is a training company and responsible for training only. We are not responsible for the assessment process or eligibility of students to gain registration with any external organisation.

Do Part P schemes operate in Scotland?
No, Part P only applies to England and Wales.
Why might I wait before I join a scheme?
Well, some schemes call for a degree of experience and using the Building control route for a while whilst you gain experience is a sensible route to go before you join a scheme. Also you may feel when you first start out that you don’t do enough notifiable work to justify the Scheme fee, or that in general the majority of your work is non notifiable in any case. Either way it’s a choice and one you make to suit your circumstances.
To conclude, you must be ‘Competent’ meaning having skills & knowledge and that’s where we come in!
