This course is made up of five units and during the academic year, learners will study a combination of classroom-based theory and a broad range of practical tasks in our well-equipped electrical workshop. This prepares you for the examinations and assessments you’ll need to complete to achieve your diploma qualification. Units include health and safety in building services engineering, principles of electrical science, electrical installations technology, installation of wiring systems and enclosures, and understanding how to communicate with others within building services engineering. You will need to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) on the course in line with industry expectations, and provide some of this yourself. The course also involves some working from stepladders, extension ladders and scaffolding, and using hand and power tools.
