Frequently asked questions
Can I split the weeks up?
Yes of course. You cant book this online but give us a call on 01293 529777 with your preferred dates and we will arrange this for you.
Can I pay in instalments?
You can pay a deposit a then an interest free installment each week you attend your course. We are now able to offer low monthly payments which can be spread over 1-4 years. See paying for your course for more info.
What work is notifiable?
Notifiable work is work that requires a Part P certificate to be generated for the home owner or customer. In order to generate a Part P certificate Building control will need to be notified for the job or a Scheme provider such as the NICEIC.
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.
Must I join a registration body scheme, Like NICEIC, ELECSA 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.
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 experienced electrician for more complex installs (Full time / Short contracts)
