If you work in such a trade as construction, bathroom and kitchen fitting, heating installation or domestic appliance installation, it’s understandable why you may also be anxious to equip yourself with a good level of expertise in the associated field of domestic electrical installations. Sure enough, a course exists here at YTA that enables you to do precisely this, should you carry out electrical work as a secondary task in your line of employment.
That pathway is the 10-day Domestic Electrical Installer (DEI) course, which – through its combination of practical and theoretical work – gives you a comprehensive understanding of domestic electrical installations.
More than this, though, the course culminates in an industry-recognised certificate that remains valid for five years, which helps to make it an even more worthwhile investment.
Who should – or should not – sign up for this course?
It is important to emphasise that our Domestic Electrical Installer courses are designed for the needs of existing professionals working within the electrical or related industries; they are not suitable for anyone with no prior qualifications or experience as an electrician, and who wishes to become one.
Specifically, workers in the aforementioned trades whose Logic Certification Defined or Full Scope Part P certificate has or is on the verge of expiring are advised to enrol on this course, especially given that it covers all areas to have been changed or updated since the BS7671:2018 18th Edition Wiring Regulations were introduced.
What will you know as a result of obtaining your DEI certificate?
There is a wide range of areas in which you will be trained and assessed as a student of our DEI course – from component exchange and pre-work survey/inspections to how unsafe electrical situations can be identified and how cables can be installed or rerouted to form suitable outlet connections.
Along the way, those enrolled on our Domestic Electrical Installer courses also become well-versed in the applicable building regulations and electrical safety legislation regulations, standards and terminology. Such aspects as safe isolation procedures, earthing and bonding requirements, special locations, high protective conductors and the maintenance of domestic electrical installations are also all touched upon over the 10 days.
All in all, you could scarcely hope for more territory to be covered by a single course dedicated to the needs of domestic electrical installers. Assessment methods used, meanwhile, include observed practical tasks alongside multiple choice and short written response and scenario questions.
