About this course

The Electacourse Part P Course is designed to help you understand the requirements of Part P and to prepare you for your Part P Assessment.

It is expected that people undertaking this course fit into one of the following groups:

  • qualified and experienced electricians and are up to date with 17th Edition Wiring Regulations BS7671
  • Students on a full time study programme towards becoming a fully qualified electrician
  • qualified in a related trade such as plumbing, heating, ventilation and undertake domestic electrical installation work as part of their main activity
  • individuals wishing to qualify as Domestic Installers

For already qualified electricians this course will teach you how Part P relates to your domestic installation practice and which work requires notification to Building Control.

If you are uncertain about the level of your practical experience of domestic electrical installation work or you need to update your practical testing skills we can refer you to reputable training providers who offer short practical experience training.

Part P Assessment

To join a self-certification scheme you need to pass a Part P Assessment. Once you have successfully joined a self-certification scheme, you can undertake domestic electrical installation work signed off by yourself.
