The Part P Electrical course is aimed at heating engineers, plumbers, electrical installers and engineers, and anyone involved in kitchen fitting and joinery.

It is structured for those who would like to carry out minor electrical work relating to plumbing, heating and gas work. With this qualification you can also issue a ‘minor work’ certificate with the electrical work. This is currently one of the qualifications companies ask for before employment.

At Octillion Training Academy we take pride in making sure you are at ease for the duration of our courses and have structured them accordingly.

Part P states that anyone carrying out electrical installation work in a home must make sure that the work is designed and installed to protect people from fire and electric shocks, AND applies to any changes made to existing installations, including any parts that have been rewired. In April 2013, further changes were introduced, reducing the range of electrical installation work that is notifiable – removing some requirements in kitchens and outdoors.

The Part P Electrical course has been structured to focus on the following areas:

Applicable Building Regulations
Electrical Safety Legislation
Regulation standards and terminology
Pre-work survey/inspection
Safe isolation procedures
Earthing and bonding requirements
Electrical test procedures
Cable, component Selection and Fitting
Installation and Replacement of Electrical Components and Fittings including heating controls.
Checking the Correct and Safe Operation of Installed Electrical Components
Recording of Electrical Test Results
Completion of Certification and Notification Requirements
Inspection and Testing Required for the Installation of Central Heating
Installing and / or Re-routing Cables to Form Suitable Outlet Connections e.g. fused spur to replace damaged cables
Replace a Power Fitting or add a New Spur in an Existing Ring Main
Add a New Single Power Circuit Direct from the Consumer Unit (this would include for example; electrical showers, immersion heater, cooker circuits.
Replacement of a lighting unit and the installation of a new single lighting circuit direct from the consumer unit.

How will I be assessed?

On your understanding of electrical principles and cable termination skills

Each student will work on their own system, and will have plenty of time to absorb and understand how each system works. You will gain an understanding of how and why central heating systems work and advice will be given on suitable ‘tooling’ and test equipment.

Each learner will be assessed on completion of a ‘minor work’ certificate on the work that they have carried out.
