This qualification allows the learner to acquire advanced underpinning knowledge and related skills of electrical installation. It does not require occupational evidence from the workplace, so is suitable for learners who currently do not work within the electrical industry (but may wish to do so). The qualification has been adapted from the Diploma within the apprenticeship framework, therefore successful completion of the qualification facilitates progression to the industry recognised qualification. It provides the learner an opportunity to practice and be assessed in a secure environment on the installation and testing of electrical equipment together with the relevant theory of electrical installation to the current edition of the wiring regulations. The learner has the opportunity to utilise BS 7671 within some of the units and also acquire the relevant understanding of electrical science and principles.
