We did say in our last update that we were sure that the changes being made to the domestic installer qualification route would not be pushed back again and we were correct. However nobody expected the deadline to be brought forward to the 6th April 2013.
Find out more below!
So what does this mean for you?
Simply put if you are looking to register on a Part P scheme with NICEIC, ELECSA or a similar scheme provider under the current rules then you will need to ensure you have registered by the 5th April 2013. In order to register by this date you must have passed your 17th edition wiring regulations. If your registration is made on the 6th April 2013 it will be too late!
Looking to get qualified?
If you are looking to qualify under the current scheme you only have 4 ½ months to get trained and then register with a scheme provider. As long as you register before the 5th April 2012 the current qualification route will be valid and a course such as our Bronze or Silver package will suffice in terms of training requirements.
Already Part Qualified?
There are also lots of people out there who have some but not all of their required qualifications. The current requirements for Part P registration are as follows:
1. Installation Skills (Our MOD1 Course covers this)
2. Inspect & Testing Skills (Our C&G 2392 course covers this)
4. City & Guilds 2393 Part P Course passed
If you need one or a few of these quals then don’t delay and get in contact ASAP. The crucial one will be the 17th edition course, however you should meet all of the criteria above to register with someone like the NICEIC or ELECSA. If you don’t register by the 5th April then you may have to repeat some elements of your training in order to complete the new qualifications.
