Come to Able Skills and begin training on the path towards becoming a Domestic Installer.


This package will give you training, qualifications, skills and knowledge to enable you to register on to a domestic installer scheme in order to be able to self-certify your work. We aim to provide our students with a full and comprehensive understanding of how to carry out domestic-based electrical work efficiently, safely and in accordance with the industry standard. This is the ideal starting point on the journey to becoming a competent person. The course is delivered using a blended learning approach, mixing theory and practical, keeping you engaged at all times - We overall aim to give you real confidence in the practical skill itself and a great knowledge of the topic. This Domestic Electrical Part-P Package will cover the following areas during this first section 'Introduction to Domestic Electrical Installation and Understanding Electrical Installation and Applicable Building Regulations':


  • The definition of electric shock
  • Ohms Law & Power Triangles
  • Identification of earthing systems
  • An introduction to legislation governing electrical installation in dwellings
  • Understanding circuit breaker and cable selection
  • Installation of earthing and bonding, Ring circuits, Radial Circuits and various lighting circuits.
  • Understanding basic inspection and testing:
  • Safe isolation
  • Adding additional outlets to a circuit
  • Completion of a minor works certificate
  • Completion of installation certificates


After completing the above over a 10-day period, we will move on to the 18th Edition course which is a requirement for everybody working in the world of electrics -  The aim of this extended 5 day electrical training course is to gain familiarity with the layout, content and application of the BS 7671 (2018) Requirements for Electrical Installations. Moving on from there the final section of this package is Level 2 Fundamental Inspection and Testing over a 5-day period. Inspection & Testing is a fundamental aspect of being an electrician and is a qualification that all electricians should be looking to achieve, which is why we included it in this Domestic Electrical Part-P Package.


What do our students think?


“Although the course met my expectations, it was a lot to absorb in 10 days however the tutors made that process much easier to deal with, due to great explanations and knowledge on the subject.”


"It was a well-paced course and very well tutored. Thanks to Bryan, I didn’t find it as hard as I thought. Bryan made it easy to take in all the information."


"This was a great course and the facilities were great, they were a main factor in me choosing Able Skills. I am now looking forward to my other electrical courses in the package."


"Bryan has fantastic knowledge and experience and also a natural ability to communicate this to the students with a wide range of backgrounds and levels of prior knowledge. I have learned a great deal and it’s been good fun!"


"The course is a great introduction to domestic electrical work, Clive was a great tutor and had some great experience which he was able to draw upon during the course, he was able to move through the course at the right speed for each individual in the group which was beneficial for everyone. I would say that given the level of information given during the course it is beneficial for anyone thinking about taking it to get some experience beforehand, if not possible, get the on-guide and have a read, it will be beneficial."
