Course Content
This qualification allows the learner to acquire advanced underpinning knowledge and related skills of electrical installation.  It does not require occupational evidence from the workplace, so is suitable for learners who do not currently work within the electrical industry.  The qualification has been adapted from the Diploma within the apprenticeship framework, therefore successful completion of the qualification facilitates progression to the industry recognised qualification.  It provides the learner an opportunity to practice and be assessed in a secure environment on the installation and testing of electrical equipment together with the relevant theory of electrical installation to the current edition of the wiring regulations.  The learner has the opportunity to utilise BS 7671 within some of the units and also acquire the relevant understanding of electrical science and principles.

This Diploma has mandatory and optional units.  The mandatory units cover:

  • Electrical installation design
  • Environmental technology systems
  • Electrical science and principles
  • Electrical installation craft
  • Inspection, testing, commissioning
  • Diagnosing and correcting electrical faults


The optional units cover:

  • Overseeing and organising the work environment
  • Requirements of BS7671:2018

This qualification also has integral health and safety in some of the units applicable to the topic being studied.

This course is delivered at our training centre and consists of a mixture of practical sessions within our workshop and theory sessions within our training room.

This qualification is assessed by a mixture of on-screen exams, practical assessments and theory assignments.

At Vimartech Training we know how difficult it can be to get time off work to complete a course this long or to fit in retraining alongside current work and family commitments, this is why we offer this course as an evening class.  This course takes about 12 months to complete.

Vimartech Training is a small training centre and we have small class sizes of no more than 10 students on each course, this allows students the time to learn, ask questions and practice what they have learnt within a supportive environment.  Many of our previous students have started working within the electrical industry whilst undertaking this course and have gone on to progress with their qualifications and their chosen career path.  At Vimartech Training we pride ourselves on the support we give to our students to enable them to confidently work with the trade.
