As well as learning the basics of both gas engineering and electrical work, candidates who enrol onto this course will work towards the following qualifications:

You will also be able to install and maintain a variety of electrical systems, as well as certifying domestic installations up to and including full house re-wires.
  3. City & Guilds 18th edition Electrical Regs – This qualification confirms that you are equipped with a good working knowledge of the current wiring regulations.
