Course overview

Electricians fit and repair electrical circuits and wiring in people’s homes and businesses. They also install and maintain electrical equipment, instruments and machinery. If you are good with practical work, can follow technical plans and want a varied job, this could be a great career for you. You’ll also need to be well organised and understand the importance of safety regulations. To qualify as an electrician you will need to complete industry-recognised training and qualifications.

This qualification allows the learner to acquire advanced underpinning knowledge and related skills of electrical installation. It does not require occupational evidence from the workplace, so is suitable for learners who currently do not work within the electrical industry (but may wish to do so).
