EBO  have been running full time electrical training courses as a City & Guilds Training Centre since 2007. Our electrical training course will allow you to train to become a competent domestic electrician and to self certify your own work. The training runs as a full time seven week course. On successful completion of this course you will be able to work as a Qualified Supervisor (Electrical Installations in Dwellings Only) and you will achieve the qualifications and experience as outlined below. This is the brand new qualification that has fully replaced the NICEIC Domestic Installers Scheme Qualification as well as the basic Part ʻPʼ.



Your practical on-site training here at Penhale will allow you to work competently and confidently in a domestic setting. You spend time in our electrical workshop learning how to install domestic wiring and circuits, to a high professional standard, and all the complications/problem solving that this can involve. You will also thoroughly cover inspection and testing, fault finding, as well as the soft skills such as introduction to self employment, administration, awareness of tools and products that you would want to start to look at as extras around the edges. All the theory lectures and sessions and exams are structured throughout the weeks to compliment all your practical learning, and come together in sections when you tackle the exams. The layout of the weeks is provided to you when you start so you know exactly what you will be doing. As we take such small numbers you have the consistency of both the same tutors as well as the same colleagues throughout, who you will be working closely with.

ʻʼCame to EBO as a complete novice, wishing to work for myself, and undertook the Domestic Installerʼs Programme. The course was well run and well structured, with the right amount of practical and theory at the right times. Small classes were ideal, good facilities, I left after passing all assessments, ready to get on with the job. Good level of support, friendly tutors who really care about how weʼre getting on, theyʼre always happy for a call or visit to pick their brains!” Mark Knowles

ʻAfter working as an Electrician for 15 years I visited the centre to discuss updating my qualifications. I am very glad that I did. Although I could have carried on as I was, I realised that unfortunately some of what I was doing was really out of date, and although I had to pay out to update my qualifications I am really glad that I did. Very good facilities I recommend anyone looking at their options to visit. My course only had 4 students on it too. Very pleased with my course”. Roger Merritt

“I did a term at university before coming home and enrolling on this course. There were Electricians already in the family so I had had some experience. I recommend anyone considering university to look at vocational qualifications also because you can get out earning so much more quickly, in a large industry, with plenty of scope for me to undertake further qualifications in the future”.
