  • Is this course for you?

    Before any electrical installation can be erected, any such system will first have to be designed as to ensure all the specifications, equipment, accessibility, maintainability and verification are in accordance with the current legislation and be fit for purpose.
    This course (City and Guilds 2396 Design and Verification course) has been designed to help develop the skills and update the knowledge of the requirements to enable you to professionally design, erect and then verify an electrical installation.

    This is a level 4 higher education course and is held at Cannock and Tamworth.

  • Required qualifications

    The design course is aimed at existing, experienced electricians or those with a solid understanding of the requirements of the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations, Testing and Inspection and electrical installations.

  • What skills will I develop?

    This course will be delivered over 10 weeks, 1 evening per week and is theory based and as such will be classroom based. During these classes you will be required to work on an assignment as well as covering a range of topics that include the statutory and non-statutory requirements for the design of electrical installations, underpinning principles of system design and the design, construction and verification process including certification requirements.

    You will be expected to produce a design project which is set by City and Guilds and this should take in the region of 40 hours of work split between the classroom and personal time. You will also undertake a 2 hour 30 minutes open book written examination. To ensure that you are ready and able to complete these assessments successfully you will be working through the course books and be provided with the necessary work pack, notes and example questions and be given ample time and guidance to work on your individual design projects. This tried and tested approach has proven successful with previous candidates as is proven by our exceptionally high pass rate.
