    Hi,

    I'm a fully qualified plumber and do a lot of bathroom fitting. I'm considering getting training for Part P to enable me to sign off electrical work in bathrooms.

    Please advise on training courses and costs in the Tyne and Wear region.

    with all due respect, i'd say stick to plumbing, maybe train up to register as gas safe, but TBH, there's too many "other trades" entering the domestic "electricians" field that it's saturated with under qualified short course wonders.

    A ‘Part P’ course will leave you qualified to do precisely - nothing.

    A lot of work in bathrooms is notifiable to Building Control, which is typically done via one of the schemes - NICEIC, ELECSA, NAPIT and one or two others. Perhaps visit their web sites to see what qualifications you need to join. And factor in their fees, and that you'll need an annual inspection.

    18th edition, a level 3 qualification and to be competent to join a CPS. I can’t help you with what training you require as I don’t know your level of competence. Maybe have a look at 2382-18, 2392 and 2393.

    To sign off your own electrical work you’ll need to join a scheme, for that you’ll need quals upto c&g 2391 or 2394/95 Inspect and test,not an easy exam.
    As Tel says why don’t you go gas safe route? I’ve never met a poor domestic gas man!

    Welcome Jim, as @Murdoch@Murdoch has stated, culture a relationship with a local sparky who will be able to assess the work and carry it out in good timing with you, it’ll save you all of the money and grief getting trained and you know that you’ll get work coming in from him because ‘we don’t touch water’!
    I can see a beautiful relationship blossoming.
