Essential Electrics

Crownship provides this course for those who need to carry out electrical work but have no recognisable qualifications to do so. It has been designed for individiuals with very little or no previous electrical experience, candidates will leave this course confident to continue onto the Part P Electrical / Level 2 Domestic Electrical Installer Certificate course and/or City & Guilds 2382 18th Edition course.

It enables individuals who need to carry out electrical work to comply with the requirements of the Electricity at Work Act 1989. It covers the correct procedures for safe isolation of equipment, the use of test equipment and the testing of any work that is carried out.
Candidates have to demonstrate that they can undertake simple wiring tasks and that they are able to test that work is safe to put back into service safely.
