• Product Description

    The course will give delegates the knowledge and practical skills required to complete Electrical Installation Certificates or Minor Works Certificates for electrical installations before putting them into service.



    The course is aimed experienced electricians and is intended to improve skills and understanding. It covers inspecting and testing of new and existing single and three-phase installations in line with the requirements of BS 7671 as well as the correct completion of certification and reporting.


    Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a much better understanding of initial verification and the periodic inspection and testing process.

    There are no formal entry requirements but we do advise candidates to hold a BS7671:2008 - 17th Edition Wiring Regulations qualification or have recently completed an apprenticeship (NVQ Level 3) since 2008. It is ideally suited for practicing electricians who have not carried out inspection and testing since qualifying, or who require some form of update before moving on to other electrical inspection qualifications.

    Non-practising electricians would find it very difficult to achieve this qualification and we would recommend pre-reading various publications to include IET Guidance Note 3 and BS7671:2008 - 17th Edition Wiring Regulations Amendment 3 2015, prior to attending the course. 


    * Please note Training at DCET venues does not run on consecutive days. For further information please contact the Training Sales Team on 0333 015 6627.
