This training and assessment course covers the requirements of domestic electrical installation to provide students with a sufficient level of competence, so that once registered with a relevant body, they will be able to work safely, efficiently and legally on electrical equipment.
Under current building regulations, most electrical work carried out in houses must, by law, be notified to the local authority building control. The exception to this is where the work is undertaken by a competent person who is a member of a Governing Body and is registered onto a Part P scheme.
The scheme requires that any members can prove competency and, upon registering onto a scheme, candidates will be assessed by the Governing Body they choose.
To register onto a Part P scheme candidates are required to have knowledge of domestic installation and a relevant qualification which determines that they are competent and able to safely work on electrical equipment in the home. Persons registered with the Part P Self-Certification schemes will be qualified contractors with the ability to thoroughly check relevant electrical circuits for safety.
They are required to issue an Electrical Installation Certificate that complies with Building Regulations requirements when the work has been completed. In order for candidates to reach their full potential and fully meet the requirements of the Part P scheme, practical abilities will be required to be updated and an understanding of terminology and basic electrical theory.
To provide candidates with the required knowledge, understanding and skills to undertake electrical work within the mandate of Approved Document P of the U.K. Building Regulations.
Anyone wishing to carry out electrical work within a domestic dwelling which is covered by the scope of Part P.
Candidates should have a knowledge and understanding of domestic electrical installations.
