Domestic Installers Course
(*£520.00 for returning BTC electrical students)
The Builder Training Centre (The BTC) offers high quality structured Domestic Installers (Part P) courses, which can be attended either as a weekday course (Generally Monday to Thursday) or, for those that have commitments during the week, a weekend course (2 consecutive weekends).
Our instructors are qualified, highly experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic Tradespersons, so students can take advantage of all the tips of the trade, personal experiences and advice they offer. This short course is intensive, but the atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable which creates a good learning environment.
This Domestic Installers Course is aimed at those who regularly carry out electrical work in support of their main trade. This mainly consists of kitchen fitters, plumbers, carpenters and builders, but also extends to anyone carrying out electrical work in the home. This is an essential step for people looking to progress onto becoming an Electrician.
From January 2005 all electrical work in dwellings is required to comply with Approved Document P (electrical safety) requirements and to be carried out by persons competent to do the work. Any work that involves adding a new circuit, or work within a special location, will need to be notified to building control or carried out by a competent person who is registered with a Self-Certification Scheme.
Entrants will be expected to have a basic level of electrical installation and testing skills. Individuals without these skills should consider our 4-day electrical foundation course as the initial step toward becoming an electrician.
