Why Take This Domestic Installer Course?

iet centre of excellence

The skills learnt on this course will enable you to carry out all kinds of installations in a domestic setting. Essentially you will be competent and safe to work on any kind of domestic project, be that a house re-wire, extension or simple jobs such as new sockets and light fittings. Under current building regulations anyone carrying out such work must be able to prove they are competent and safe to do so.

Once you have completed this course you will have the skills, knowledge and qualifications to enable you to find employment or work on a self employed basis as a domestic electrical installer. In fact the majority of people who train on this course go on to set up as self employed domestic electricians.

What can you officially do with these skills and qualifications?

This course will give you training, qualifications, skills and knowledge to enable you to register with the NICEIC, ELECSA etc on their domestic installer schemes and self certify your work. The scheme provider is likely to want to see that you have experience of real installations before or after your training. Alternatively you can complete an installer’s Part P certificate for building control for notifiable work. Building Control will take your competency and qualifications into account when certifying your installation.

It will also enable you to undertake and recognise the new 2013 expanded criteria of non notifiable work that you will be able to undertake both competently and safely. It is also an entry course to becoming a qualified supervisor if you are an adult learner where a degree of knowledge and experience in domestic work is required prior to taking the Qualified Supervisors qualification.

Throughout the course you will learn the following Core Competencies:

Practical Skills in Domestic Installation

Throughout the course you will learn a range of practical skills to enable you to work as a domestic installer. You will be assigned your own consumer unit and from there build lighting circuits, socket outlet circuits, cooker & shower circuits and much more. You will also learn the essentials of earthing and bonding as well as how to correctly use the tools of the trade.

You will also learn installation theory covering aspects such as cable sizing and selecting the right cables types to do the job at hand. During the course you will be assigned your own workspace and build all the key circuits listed above. You will then be required to build this from scratch as part of your final assessments.

Wiring and Building Regulations

You will start to learn about the regulations in week 1 of the course whilst doing practical installations, however in later weeks we will go into much greater detail. When it comes to learning about building and wiring regulations you will often find there are lots of overlaps and similar topics so our blended learning technique is ideal for you to absorb the right information at the right time without lots of repetition. After completing the course you will have the knowledge, skills and qualifications to enable you to competently install your domestic electrical work, compliant with Part P of the Building Regulations as well as the latest 17th edition wiring regulations.  Every practicing electrician must have their wiring regs certificate (17th Edition).

Inspection & Testing Skills

Inspection and Testing is an essential skill for every electrical installer and it is focussed on teaching you the processes, procedures, and practicalities of ensuring the installations you complete are functioning correctly and safe for use. Throughout the course you will learn the hands on skills and the theory behind it to ensure that you are competent to inspect and test your own installations. Please note this course does not allow you to carry out periodic inspection and testing.

What does the bronze course allow me to do ?

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.

Yes indeed, this is a recognised route for you to register as a domestic installer.

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!

Must I join a registration body scheme, Like NAPIT, NICEIC etc?

Frankly, No. You can undertake notifiable and non notifiable work without being registered with a registration body and whilst there are obvious business benefits to joining such schemes, they are not mandatory.

We have had guidance discussions with Senior building control officials on your behalf and the advice we have been given and as is stated in building regulations, the system is such that you are able to undertake domestic electrical work for a customer and by liaising with local building control you can ensure the homeowner obtains their Part P compliance certificate.

The issue here is ‘competency’. You must be competent to do the work and Building control will need to know you’re competent. They do this by talking to you and asking for your qualifications. They will want to see a minimum of your 17th edition wiring regulations and a Testing & Inspection qualification like the City & Guilds 2392 or equivalent and that's where we come in.
