You are welcome to bring your own food to eat in our centre. Alternatively, we sell a small selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks in our canteen, or you could purchase food from one of the local supermarkets/shops/cafes/restaurants within just a few minutes’ walk.

Most students also find it beneficial to bring Post-it notes or sticky tags, which they can use to separate their books into sections. Additionally, a pen and a non-programmable calculator are permitted for the exam.

Provided you are aged at least 18 years and have a basic knowledge of electrical principles, this course is suitable for you. Whether your background is already in a trade or something completely different, these skills can be learnt and applied directly after the course.

Staying current with the latest wiring regulations is a fundamental requirement for anyone involved in electrical installation. These regulations serve as the cornerstone of the industry, essential not only for installers and employers, but also for governing bodies, as they set the standard for safe and compliant practices.

The content and total hours of the course are the same. Additionally, it is usually the same tutor who conducts the course. However, please note that the weekend courses start at 8.30 am instead of 9 am to maintain consistency with our other weekend courses.
