As you can see we provide all the materials you could possibly need, you don't need to buy or bring anything with you when taking one of our electrical courses.


The course is 10-days in total and consists of a real mix between workshop and theory, with the main focus on practical learning. The best way to learn it to get involved. Kinesthetic learning is a learning style in which learning takes place by the students carrying out physical activities, rather than listening to a lecture or watching demonstrations - we believe that this is key to understanding a trade such as domestic installation.

  • The definition of electric shock
  • Ohms Law & Power Triangles
  • Identification of earthing systems
  • An introduction to legislation surrounding electrical installation in dwellings
  • Understanding breaker and cable selection
  • Installation of earthing and bonding, Ring circuits, Radial circuits, Cooker circuits, various lighting circuits.
  • Completion of installation certificate
  • Understanding basic inspection and testing:
    • Continuity of protective conductors
    • Continuity of protective conductors radial circuits
    • Continuity of protective conductors ring final circuits
    • Insulation resistance
    • Polarity


We will provide you with an induction folder which is packed with all the information you will require to safely undertake electrical work and will come in handy if you decide to move forward either in a career as a Domestic Installer or if you choose to do other courses with us at a later date, to a career as an Electrician. Our instructors are extremely knowledgeable on the subject, so take note of their advice, listen to what they have to say as they have all worked out in the industry for years doing what you are aspiring to do! We would also like to remind you that you are surrounded by apprising electrics; network and communicate, it could be very beneficial for you in the long-term if you end up pursuing the trade further!
