What electrical work can I do after this course?
This course will allow you to carry out domestic electrical work after successful completion of the course. You will be able to carry out any form of minor works such as adding to or altering an existing circuit. You will also be suitably qualified to carry out what is called notifiable work which can include the installation of a new circuit, a re-wire or work in a bathroom. The difference with notifiable work is that building control have to be informed. There are two ways of notifying the work, the first is to go directly through building control, and the second is to join what is known as a part p scheme provider who will handle the notification process.
Can I join a part P scheme provider after this course?
This will depend on your current level of experience. The qualifications are a must before attempting to join one of the schemes, but the schemes themselves also have varying entry requirements based on the level of experience you currently have. Generally they will ask for 2 years experience prior to joining. The different scheme providers may have different requirements as to what is deemed as experience so do your research and contact them to find out what is required.
How do I gain experience?
You can gain experience in a number of ways. Working with an existing electrician is one possible route, carrying out only minor works until you start to gain more confidence is another. It’s worth remembering that you don’t need to be a member of a part p scheme to notify work, you can always go through building control if necessary. If it’s a question of feeling nervous working in customers’ homes, starting with work for family or friends is another possibility.
