Looking to update and improve your electrical knowledge to ensure you’re compliant with the latest industry standards?

For October 2023, the 3-day intensive City & Guilds course enables you to fit your studies around your current work commitments.

The January 2024 and April 2024 starts provide other duration options that suit you!

  • Scope, object and fundamental principles for safety
  • Definitions
  • Assessment of General Characteristics
  • Protection for safety
  • Selection and Erection of equipment
  • Special Installations
  • Inspection and Testing

You will need to complete one exam; a computer-based multiple-choice test which is set and marked by City & Guilds.

You’ll need to have completed the City & Guilds Level 2 Electrical Installation.
