This course is for students who want to work as an electrician in the building services engineering sector. This course does not make students fully qualified electricians – it allows students to learn, develop and practice the skills required for employment and/ or career progression in the electrotechnology sector.

The course is broken down into units focusing on specific areas which are then assessed. This will allow us to check your progress before the next module begins. Don’t worry! Each unit is carefully programmed and delivered to ensure you receive training appropriate for you.

During the course you will receive practical and theory lessons. In practical lessons you will work through a series of tasks or projects to develop your hands-on skills. All of the tasks that you produce are set by the awarding body to demonstrate and verify your practical skills.

Areas covered include:

  • Health and Safety in Building Services Engineering
  • Environmental Technology Systems
  • Electrical Science
  • Testing and Commissioning
  • Electrical Systems Design
  • IET Wiring Regulations
  • Electrical Installations including Fault Diagnosis and Rectification Inspection

This course include visits, guest speakers, training opportunities and work experience as standard.


You will need to have completed Electrical Installation Level 2. Your entry level will be assessed based on any previous experience you may have, initial aptitude test results, as well as discussing your goals and aspirations. No matter what level you start at, each course prepares you for the next, to allow you to progress and maximise your potential.


Assignments are practical and written and cover the skills and knowledge in the above units – there are various practical tasks to be completed within the practical workbook and each unit will have online, on-demand testing using multiple choice questions (e-assessment). There will be long answer written papers and final end of year practical testing exams.


This course will allow you to progress into employment, although not as a fully qualified electrician, or to the following qualifications:

  • Level 3 NVQ in Electrical Installation
  • Level 3 Award in the Initial Verification and Certification of Electrical Installations
  • Level 3 Award in the Periodic Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations
  • Level 4 Award in Design and Verification of Electrical Installations

Former students have gone on to work within the industry or have even set up their own businesses. Many are now helping to train the workforce of the future as they have also taken on apprentices of their own.
