C & G Electrical Installer Qualification






C & G Electrical Installer QualificationThis 15 day intensive training program includes three City & Guilds qualifications in the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations (C&G2382), Part P of the Building Regulations (C&G2393) & the Level 3 Fundamental Inspection & Testing Qualification (C&G2394), as well as training in the practical skills required to complete the fixed electrical wiring in a Domestic Premises.

The training includes the guidance you will need to become a qualified Domestic Electrical Installer and register with a Domestic Installer/Competent Person Scheme via NAPIT, the NIC EIC, the ECA or Elecsa, etc.

Once you achieve these qualifications and obtain the skills we offer you can be confident you will be fully prepared to satisfy the updated building regulations which legally require all installers to be competent and have the applicable qualifications in installing, inspecting & testing their installations to allow them to undertake notifiable and non-notifiable work, either for their own customers or for an electrical company.

Whether you have some electrical experience or you are completely new to electrical installation work and want to gain the qualifications required in this field intensively, this would be the entry-level course that is suitable for you. You will get theoretical & practical, hands-on training specifically designed to give you the best skillset in order to enable you to progress in the electrical industry.

electrician1Why should you take the Domestic Installer Course?

The skills learnt on this course will enable you to effectively carry out any type of installation work in a domestic dwelling. Essentially you will be deemed competent and safe to work on any domestic project, be it a house re-wire, an extension or simple jobs such as new sockets or additional light fittings.

The Law & Where this Training stands.

Under current building regulations anyone carrying out such work must be able to prove they are competent, skilled and safe to do so. Once you have completed this course you will have the competency, the skills, the knowledge and the qualifications to enable you to find employment or work on a self employed basis as a domestic electrical installer. You may wish to take further qualifications later in your electrical career, but essentially this training is the perfect foundation for a career as an electrician.

What can you officially do with these skills and qualifications?

The most common reason for individuals taking this course is that it gives them the correct training, qualifications, skills and knowledge to be able to register with NAPIT, the NIC EIC, or ELECSA on their Domestic Installer schemes and to self-certify their own work. The Competent Person Part P scheme provider you choose is expected to want to see that you have some experience of real installations before or after your training. We will discuss the best way to go about this during the training course.

This course is the ideal starting place for anyone over the age of 21 looking to work as a domestic electrical installer but who has little to no electrical installation experience. It covers all the core competencies required to start up in the industry and work on electrical installation in a residential property.  If you are looking to get your foot on the first rung of the ladder of your electrical career then this is the ideal course for you.

Under the new updated Building Regulations, any electrical installer must be competent and have the relevant minimum qualifications to prove their competence, installing testing and inspecting their installation to BS 7671 regulations. Building regulations updated in 2013 state electrical installations ’must be designed and installed under BS7671’ (17th Edition Wiring regs).

You will achieve 3 C&G Qualifications as well as the Practical Training & Skills required to work in the Industry:

When completing this course at DJT we endeavor to give you the best practical skills and training you can achieve within our dedicated workshop. We use the skills of electrical tutors and personnel who collectively have over 100 years of experience between them in the electrical field. You will be shown how to wire lighting, power an distribution circuits as well as how to inspect & test an installation in line with the IET Guidance Note 3.

You will also achieve the following qualifications which are a requirement in the industry:

City & Guilds 2393-10           – Part P Building Regulations Qualification

City & Guilds 2382-15          – 17th Edition Wiring Regulations (Including latest amendments)

City & Guilds 2394-30          – Fundamental Inspection & Testing Level 3 Qualification

These qualifications form the foundation knowledge required to competently install, inspect and test your own domestic installations in order to ensure compliance with the latest wiring and building regulations.

Throughout the course you will learn the following Core Competencies:

Practical Skills in Domestic Installations

You will learn installation theory covering the essential aspects of protective device & cable sizing and choosing the right cables types to complete the various tasks required. During the 15 days of training you will learn a range of practical skills to enable you to work as an electrical domestic installer. You will be allocated your own area in the workshop and from a consumer unit you will install lighting circuits, socket outlet circuits, cooker & shower circuits as well as learning the essentials of earthing and bonding & how to correctly use the tools of the trade.

Wiring and Building Regulations

You will start to learn about the IET Wiring Regulations & part P of the Building Regulations from day one of the course while covering the general aspects of electrical installation work & completing practical installations. As the course progresses the training will go into much greater detail concerning Part P and the IET Wiring Regulations which will eventually culminate with the C&G 2382 & C&G2393 examinations.

Inspection & Testing Skills

Inspection and Testing is an essential skill for every electrical installer. The C&G 2394 is essentially a Level 3 replacement for the 2392 and aimed at electricians with a limited experience of Inspection & Testing. As part of the training we will take you right through the requirements of BS7671 & Guidance Notes 3. We try to engage delegates on this course with electrical personnel who are taking the 2394 outside of the Electrical Installer scheme, in order for peer-learning & networking to take place. Once achieved, delegates would be able to Inspect, Test & sign off their own installations.
