Hello all

As some of you may know I am a 'mature' student currently getting my qualifications to get my foot on the ladder to becoming a spark.

I am currently in the process of completing the following:

City and Guilds 2330 - Level 2 - Electrotechnical Technology
City and Guilds 2330 - Level 3 - Electrotechnical Technology
City and Guilds 2356 - Level 3 - Installing Technical Systems (job dependant).

I have also got the following lined up.

City and Guilds 2382 - 17th. Edition Wiring Regulations
City and Guilds 2391 - Inspection and Testing
Part P

My questions are all the above A - neccessary (as I going to be a domestic installer)? and B - is there anything extra I need (besides experience)?

Thanks

Dan

Part P is a building regulation not a qualification. The Supposed "Part P" Qualification is a short course aimed at plumbers and kitchen fitters. 2330 goes well beyond what it taught by this.

Thanks alot Jono.

I wondered why I couldn't find an 'official' qualification. As part of my course notes for 2382 and 2391 there is a large section on Part P (including documentation) which is really useful.

What's confusing me now is that my tutor said I 'needed' Part P. Makes me wonder whether some of these people actually know what they are doing?

Thanks

Dan

if you want to certify your own work you would have to be part of a Part P scheme (NICEIC, Napit, Elesca etc) otherwise it has to go through building control which is honestly a pain in the backside. IEE do a decent guide to all the various building regs you may come across. As for colleges some are quite dumb and out of date. A Lecturer at the college i attend was still using 16th Edition values for calculations in demember...
