If you are a domestic installer that needs to register onto a Part P scheme, you will need to achieve the City & Guilds 2382-10 electrical courses qualification within 12 months of being accepted by your chosen governing body.  

Trainees looking to learn to become a fully qualified electrician will need to take the City & Guilds 2382-10 after they have first achieved the City & Guilds 2330 level 2 and level 3.

Registering onto a Part P scheme and obtaining the City & Guilds 2391 is also essential before a trainee is ready to meet the onsite assessments required to obtain NVQ level 3.

With all of these qualifications on offer, there is no quick and easy route to becoming a qualified tradesman so potential electricians need to find a training centre which they feel provides the best learning experience possible.

Trainees should only choose centres that are City & Guilds accredited because this the industry governing body that authorises people to practice professionally as an electrician.

It is advisable that trainees do their research before choosing a centre and the best way to do this is to visit the facilities in person as this will give them the opportunity to talk with current students and instructors.
