EC4U’S DOMESTIC ELECTRICIAN PACKAGE PUTS BUSINESS AND PRACTICAL SKILLS CENTRE STAGE
Sussex-based electrical training specialists, EC4U (Electrician Courses 4U), is bringing to life the business, practical skills and know-how needed to become an electrician with five days of training in real-world settings as part of its 20 day Domestic Electrician Package.
Ideally suited to those looking for a career change or to add to their existing skillset and become a domestic electrician, EC4U’s Domestic Electrician Package provides excellent value for money. Successful participants are able to join a Part P scheme provider and self-certify that their electrical work meets current Building Regulations.
“Our focus on business skills, practical application of technical knowledge, and our competitive rates, we believe the Domestic Electrician Package from EC4U stands head and shoulders above the competition,” says Nigel Best, Managing Director at EC4U. “Our unique course and facilities feature typical settings for apartments and a two storey house, so that those taking the course can experience just what it’s like to work in the field with all that that entails, the tight spaces, the likely obstructions and so on. We believe that this is so important to recreate what it’s really like for the aspiring electrician so that they can be successful in business, apply what they’ve learnt and test how they can deal with real problems that they will have to overcome.”
The 20-day Domestic Electrician Package is separated into five modules, covering all the vital skills and qualifications required. The Key Stage electrician course (five days) provides knowledge and insight into how to design, change and extend various wiring circuit scenarios back to a consumer unit. In the level 2 Inspection and Testing course (City and Guilds 2392), participants will learn how to inspect and test new or changed electrical wiring circuits. They will also be taught how to safely conduct dead and live tests and fill in the required paperwork which needs to be left with the consumer unit in order to conform with Part P of the Building Regulations.
The third module focuses on Part P of the Building Regulations (City and Guilds 2393), providing participants with a solid understanding and working knowledge of what’s required, covering the electrical safety do’s and don’ts of what you can and can’t do in the home. During the same week, is the fourth module 17thEdition Wiring Regulations 2008 Amendment 3 (City and Guilds 2382) which is now in force.
In the final five days of the Domestic Electrician Package, participants take the Experience Course. Here, they practice the electrical skills they have learnt, in the most realistic way possible; in the two flats and a two storey house (including loft) setup on the EC4U premises. They also learn how to quote for business, and work out how to estimate for time on projects so that they can be competitive. Within this module, they are also taught how to set up their own electrical business and how to market themselves successfully.
Assessment takes place throughout the duration of the package, in the form of three multiple choice tests and one two-hour practical assessment. The total cost of the Domestic Electrician Package is £2200, including VAT. To make paying for the Domestic Electrician Package as easy as possible, EC4U offers a 0% finance scheme for the course which can spread the payment over 12 months interest free.
