Since changes were implemented last April to Part P the industry has been looking to introduce new qualifications which specifically address the updated requirements. Since that time the EAL 7695 has been available, however it was not an immediate hit simply because there are still other routes available for those wishing to register as a domestic installer on a Part P scheme.
EAL have been working in conjunction with Trade Skills 4U to update this qualification and make it more accessible for all. This is why we are now pleased to be the first in the UK to be able to offer this new updated qualification. The key change is that this all of qualification assessment can now be delivered in centre making it much more manageable for students and trainers alike.
Why should you take this course?
This course is now the no. 1 recommended route for those looking to register on a Part P scheme. It is what the industry has been calling out for and covers much more detailed training specific to domestic installation than its predecessors. Its one single qualification designed with this purpose in mind and as such the course content can be much more specific in what it covers in relation to domestic installation.
Another key difference is that this qualification will map into to the qualifications required to become a fully qualified electrician should you wish to work on commercial projects and open up your scope of work at a later stage. This is a major improvement and means that this course is a real entry point into the electrical industry as a whole not just domestic installation.
EAL have confirmed this in their Qualification Factsheet which has just been published. You can download a copy here.
