Domestic Electrical Installation Full Scope

20 day contract funded electrical course at RTC Aldershot for those seeking to gain an introduction to domestic installation work in a property or progress towards a full electrical apprenticeship. 

*Important Update*

Changes from 01 September 2021 to the IET’s entry criteria for the electrical Competent Persons Schemes mean that the “Inspection and Test Certificate of Competence” qualification gained by most Domestic Installation courses (including CTP’s NAPIT certified course) will not be sufficient to join those schemes.

CTP are currently working with awarding bodies who are developing new broader qualifications to satisfy the new CPS entry requirements. Previous electrical responsibility will also be part of the new entry requirements, hence the qualification itself may not be sufficient to join a scheme.

If you seek to undertake electrical training without needing to join a CPS scheme, you will still be able to book and attend the training to gain experience as a Domestic Installer but there will be no “Inspection and Test Certificate of Competence” qualification upon completion. This may suit service leavers who want to carry out work of their own properties or continue into an electrical field.

These changes do not affect the optional exams;
C&G 2382 18th Edition Requirements for Electrical Installations,
C&G 2393 Building Regulations for Electrical Installations in Dwellings

We will update once we have further information on this training for courses from September 2021. Further details on the changes are outlined in the attachment below.

Why take this course?

This course provides an excellent foundation for those wishing to work in the electrical industry. The main focus of the course is on domestic installations; however almost all of the content is applicable to non-domestic electrical systems also. Further training will be necessary to work unsupervised in the commercial sector.

Is this the right course for me?

For those intending to work as Domestic Installers, the Full Scope Certificate of Competence obtained on successful completion of the course is suitable for entry onto domestic electrical Competent Person Schemes across England and Wales up to mid September 2021 only. This course will be updated once CTP are able to deliver a suitable course, which along with industry experience, will enable attendees to join a Competent Persons Scheme.

Service Leavers intending to work in Scotland or Northern Ireland should note that the requirements for domestic building regulations self-certification are different to the rest of the UK. If you intend working in these areas you are advised to contact the RTC Engineering Department for more information before booking.

Eligibility

This is a technical and intensive course. Those Service leavers who do not have a technical background may find this course very challenging.

Fees & Funding

  • Course Fee 20 Days IRTC (£534.00)
  • Exam Fee £229.00

Course Content

You will learn the theory behind different electrical circuits found in the home, and how they should be installed and tested.

You will select cable size/type and protective devices as guided by current regulations, and install the circuits to a rig board provided.

Inspection and test will then be carried out on each circuit to measure electrical characteristics and prove compliance with regulations. This will also determine if it is safe to put into operation. You will complete Minor Works certificates, EIC certificates for new circuits and Condition Reports for those already in use. During the course you will also inspect and test pre-built installations and produce certification for them as you would with a real domestic installation.

The course covers Full Scope Part P, City & Guilds Level 3 Building Regulations and Level 3 18th Edition Wiring Regulations. 

Please note that you will be required to pay the following exam and book fees on arrival at the course:
NAPIT Full Scope assessment £109.00 ( for courses up to mid Sept 21 only)

Optional Exams:
City & Guilds 2393 £52.00 
City & Guilds 2382 £58.00

Books relating to all content: 
Onsite Guide
BS 7671 Wiring Regulations
Guidance Note 3
Electricians Guide to Building Regulations

Books may also be purchased in advance from bookshops and online retailers.

 

 

Career Opportunities

This course provides the foundation for those wishing to work in the electrical industry but further training will be necessary to work unsupervised outside of the domestic environment. 

Students are advised that although currently not a requirement for Part P registration, an additional stand-alone Level 3 Inspection and Test qualification is considered very valuable in the electrical industry. CTP also offer the Level 3 City & Guilds 2391-52 Combined Initial Verification and Periodic Inspection and Testing course.
