To undertake domestic electrical installation work competently and compliantly to Part P building regs you will need the knowledge and skills that this Part P training will give you; together with the relevant qualification. This Part P course forms part of our 18 Day Full Bronze Domestic Installer Courses Package.

Get certified by gaining electrician training and obtain the proper Part P qualification and proof of that you know the Part P Regulations with our intensive 5 day course. Please note this course on it's own does not enable you to carry out domestic installation work.

The latest Part P regulations as updated in 2013 only apply to England (not Wales or Scotland). If you are working outside England we recommend speaking with a course advisor on 01293 529777.

Why take this Part P training course?

iet centre of excellence

To register with a Competent Person Self-Certification Scheme** such as NICEIC, NAPIT or ELECSA, you will be expected to be competent in electrical installation, have your 18th edition wiring regs, know how to inspect and test and be able to install in line with the latest Part P building regs. Having these skills, qualifications and subsequent registration, you can self-certify your installation work. The scheme provider will then provide your customers with a Part P electrical certificate.

part p beginners guide

Our 5 day VRQ Part P Courses will bring you right up to the required safety & legal standards, enabling you to competently install your domestic electrical work, compliant with Building Regulations Part P. In fact our Part P course is not just about Part P it covers the requirements of all the parts of the building regulations and how an electrical installation can and must meet them.

We must emphasise that this short course alone will not be sufficient to become a Domestic installer it is only one element of the skills and knowledge you need. Unless you already have the relevant training and qualifications, to register on a Part P scheme you will need much more training and qualifications than this short course. After gaining your City & Guilds VRQ Certificate in the Building Regulations for electrical installations in dwellings on the Part P electrical course with Trade Skills 4U, you can continue your training to be a Domestic Electrical Installer or even train to be a Qualified Supervisor.

Is this course right for me?

This course is suitable for those with existing practical installation skills wishing to undertake domestic electrical installation work, either for themselves or any person wanting to be a Domestic Electrical Installer and undertake work for a paying customer.

Part P building regs were brought in by the government in 2005 and together with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 ensure electrical installations in domestic systems were safe and properly installed. Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 state that that anyone doing this work must be competent.

The Part P VRQ qualification that we operate on our electrical training Part P courses, is proof that you have the necessary Part P regulations knowledge.

Entry Requirements

You must be able to complete the skills of the 5 Day Domestic Installation Workshop 4141-01 Course unaided before attending this City & Guilds Level 3 VRQ Part P course or simply put you should be able to install socket and lighting circuits in a house. All candidates must be over the age of 18.

New to the electrical industry?

If you are new to the industry, then you should be aware that this course alone will not give you the skills necessary for you to become a Domestic Electrical Installer.

We would strongly suggest that you would need to undertake the 5-Day Domestic Installation Course, City & Guilds 2382 18th Edition and the City & Guilds 2392 Inspection and Testing courses. These courses will offer you plenty of high quality training and qualifications to allow you to operate as a Domestic Electrical Installer.

Over 75% of those new to the industry follow the 18 Day Bronze Course route we offer and go on to be Domestic only Electricians.

Mark made the course enjoyable and (as sad as it is) exciting and consequently the information/knowledge sunk in, all over the experience of the week was very positive. Cheers!
