Frequently Asked Questions

What does this qualification allow me to do? 

This qualification is designed to make operatives 'Low Risk' meaning you can work without supervision on domestic electrical installations. It is also a core pre-requisite to be recognised under a Competent Person Scheme. 

Will I able to sign off my own work upon qualifying? 

You would need to have two years experience in electrical installations first and hold a relevant Level 3 Electrical Installer qualification, in order to join a Competent Person Scheme. Joining a CPS allows you to then sign off your own work. 

If you're employed by an electrical company/contractor, a Qualified Supervisor would need to sign off and sample your electrical installs over the first two years. Individuals looking to undertake electrical installs would need to be signed off through their local building control.

Do I need to purchase any books for this course?

A copy of the IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition resource book and Guidance Note 3: Inspection & Testing book are required for this course. You can purchase these directly from us or you can bring your own copy with you to the course. 

If you require both, we offer these books as part of an electrical book bundle.

I'm a qualified domestic installer already, why do I need this qualification? 

As of September 2021, The IET Electrotechnical Assessment Specification set out new minimum requirements that electricians and electrical installers would need to meet in order to be recognised by a CPS.

Without this qualification it becomes very difficult for an individual to be able to join onto a scheme if they're still within their first two years of qualifying.

Can I do this course as a complete beginner?

This course is available as part of our 6 week Domestic Installer course, that is designed for those who are completely new to the industry who are looking to qualify as an electrical installer.

We would not recommend this standalone course to complete beginners or those who do not meet the prerequisites.
