I've heard this is the way to go if you want to become a domestic electrician. I've been advised the 2 week course at the cost of £1495. Obviuosly I'm not going to learn a great in deal in just two weeks but hopefully all the basics.

I've pm'ed TonyM58 about it. Just waiting for a reply.

Who else has done this course - would you advise it? I was unable to do a search because each word has to have at least 4 letters.

Thanks,

I don't tonym58 is coming back,

but the eal consists of exams about 20 odd different areas, which will enable you to quailify for part P,

If you're wanting to become domestic part P, i'd say the eal is quickest way

I don't think it's a case of, "would we advise it" (the course) but WHICH training centre are you going to do it with. (Sorry, can't advise you myself).

I believe that EAL is the way to go if you want to concentrate on domestic work (not on building sites).

Read the link below for a bit more info on routes into the trade etc.

As for TonyM58, I don't know him personally though we spoke on here many a time and if his teaching standards are anything like his answers to peoples questions then I would thoroughly recommend him as a tutor.

Hope this helps some?

Bane you have been a lot of help to me in all my threads. Thanks alot bud! Is their anyone on here that has experience with doing this course though?
 
Hi Freedo. I did a Four week course three years ago consisting of C&G2381 (16th Edition) EAL Part P, 2391 Inspection and Testing, and C&G 2377 Portable Appliance testing. I passed everything exept the 2391 theory test, I found that really hard. There was people sitting that one one their third and fouth attempts but some of our group passed first time!! The course was run by a company call Technique Training in Chesterfield. The course was very intense but realy good. I would recommend it.
