This course is aimed at experienced operatives who carry out electrical work as a secondary task, i.e. heating installers, bathroom and kitchen fitters and builders.
NB: The qualification entry requirements for companies or businesses wishing to join a Part P Competent Person Scheme (CPS) changed in 2013. The relevant change is for the designated qualifying supervisor (QS). In a larger organisation, the QS will be responsible for the competence and work of all installers carrying out electrical installations. Sole traders are both the QS and installer. The QS must hold as minimum the Level 3 Certificate in Installing, Testing and Ensuring Compliance of Electrical Installation Work in Dwellings. For larger businesses, the DEI qualification can still be used for operatives who are under the direction of the qualifying supervisor. Sole traders must comply with the qualification entry requirement detailed above.
A full list of Competent Person Schemes can be found at: communities.gov website.
Completion of the course will provide you with a Certificate of Competence, increasing your credibility and giving you the competitive edge, as well as showing your customers that you are trained to the highest of standards.
