Electrical Part P Courses in Kent

Part P courses are a very popular choice of training for those who are looking to undertake electrical work in domestic dwellings or even for those who are looking to gain some skills in order to move on to larger electrical training packages at a later date.

What is Part P?

Part P is simply a section of the building regulations that relates to electrical safety in the home. As such it is purely based on Domestic Electrical work and is not relevant to commercial electrical work. All electrical work in the home must comply with Part P (as well as a range of other building regulations).

Certifying your work

There are 3 key routes to certifying new circuits, replacement consumer units and work in special locations:

Via Building Control – You supply building control with the completed electrical installation certificates and evidence of your qualifications. If no inspection and testing is required they will then supply the Part P certificate to the home owner.

Via a Registered Third Party – You can have your work certified by electricians and domestic installers who are registered to certify the work of others. The third party certifier will then provide a copy of the Part P certificate to the home owner and the original to Building control.

Self-Certification by a Registered Competent Person – Many installers find that as work picks up and they are regularly carrying out the type of work that requires a Part P certificate they can save time and money by joining a scheme such as NICEIC, NAPIT or ELECSA. Installers pay an annual fee to the scheme providers and then notify the scheme provider of any jobs that require certification. The
