Hi all.

I am considering taking additional qualifications to train as a domestic/commercial electrician.

I currently have a HNC in electrical engineering and waiting to book my 18th edition course.

What else would i need?

Any help would be great.

Inspection and testing (part p)
18th edition and iirc there is a third one, domestic installer or similiar. I'm not 100% as it was 6 years ago I last looked.

You'll also need to join a scheme, which you have to pay a yearly fee for, niceic, napit etc...

Then you'll need test equipment, then you'll need to keep abreast of the changing regulations and sit new exams when they change them etc....

It's a lot of work to keep on top of your qualifications which is why I just went as handyman 3 years ago. I was from a similar background to you. I have 17th edition and 12 years on aircraft electrical experience so just do minor electrical these days as one of my many skills.

just my opinion, but if you (Basher) have an HNC do you think you really want to go house bashing all day? or is it a case of you have been told to move on. :cb

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

If gloom had a voice, it would be me. :mrgreen:

To be honest its more to complete my skillset. I am very practical as well as studying for my degree in electrical engineering. House bashing is more of a fall back for me but commercial might be something id fall into.
