Course Summary

The 18th edition programme is a short course aimed at anyone involved in the design, construction, inspection and testing of electrical systems. It also leads to a nationally recognised ‘must have’ qualification for companies seeking to recruit electricians.

The programme is intended to introduce the candidate to a working knowledge of the Wiring Regulations along with a brief overview of the Electricity at Work Regulations covering statutory duties.

Entry requirements

Previous knowledge of the regulations is not a must. However, a fundamental knowledge of electrical principles is required so that you can complete the course successfully. Further information is available by contacting Derby College Group.
