Whenever new installation works or alterations are carried out within premises, someone will have to make crucial decisions. At the design stage, or when it comes to installation and testing the competence of the person making those decisions is judged.

As the highest level course relating to BS7671 offered by City & Guilds, and pitched to an experienced and knowledgeable level, this qualification is chosen by many as evidence of their professional competence.

It is mainly aimed at electrical trades people and electrical managers responsible for making design decisions within an electrical installation, and is achieved by completing a two-part examination. This consists of a 3-hour evening written assessment and a design project.

You will need a sound working knowledge of electrical installation practices, preferably with some knowledge of design and verification.
