The Certificate for Domestic Electrical Installers course is suitable for those who have no formal electrical qualifications and who work in plumbing, kitchen installation, security alarms, telecommunications, property maintenance, garden installation, air-conditioning, bathroom installation, gas installers, etc and wish to join a Domestic Installer Scheme. On completion of the course the candidate will be required to join one of the Approved Schemes.

Part of the criteria for the course is that there should be no barrier to entry and that anybody can apply.  However, should the individual feel that they posses no electrical aptitude whatsoever, We would recommend that serious consideration is given to attending a preliminary Basic Domestic Electrical Appreciation Course prior to the EAL Level 2 Certificate for Domestic Electrical Installers Course.  

Successful completion of the course and appropriate assessment will suitably prepare delegates to undergo site inspection under the NAPIT or NICEIC Domestic Installer Scheme.
