    Default Weekend Part P Training - Ideally in Northwest

    HI Guys

    I am trying to locate company's that do weekend Part P training in the Northwest.

    I was made redundant in August and had been out of electrics for a good few years. I have already pass the 17th edition and part p was next on my list, however I have been lucky enough to get a electronic service position to tied me over. I am still planning to return to electrics but need to get qualified in my spare time now.

    I have located a few in the London area but would prefer somewhere more local. Ideally in the Northwest but any other options or suggestion would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi mate,

    Before you part with your hard earned on a "Part P" course, DONT. There is no such thing.
    Part P is a building regulation, and you can't get a qualification in building regs. You have passed your 17th edition, so if all your work complies with the 17th edition, then by default it also complies with all building regulations.
    Building regs state that compliance with the current wiring regs will be acheived by compliance with BS7671.

    What you may want to do, is have a look at joining a Part P self certification scheme, look at the websites of Elecsa, Napit, NICEIC etc, to see what their requirements are. I can tell you it is not a cheap hobby, but better that than wasting your cash on a PART P course. All the info you need regarding Part P compliance is in the Electricians Guide to the Building regs book, and this will set you back about 20.

    Cheers..........Howard

    Hi Howard

    Thanks for the reply. If I had the cash and was planning to set out on my own this is the way I would go. The problem I have is that I have applied for a few local jobs and they say they want proof of competence and want me to have completed one of the part P courses and have obtained a qualification like " EAL Level 2 Certificate for Domestic Electrical Installers". I think this is to make life easier for them. I don't mind spending the money on the course but just wish training centers can take working peoples money as well as those that are led to believe that a crash course in electrics makes then an electrician.

    Regards
    Darren
