At Access Training we strive to deliver first class trade training courses. We have successfully trained hundreds of people who have no previous trade experience to become experts in their chosen fields and equip them with all the skills necessary to enter into the world of trade work. Many of our students aspire to become self-employed and we at access training can help.

Interested in enrolling on a course? Read the Access Training Reviews left by past students below:

Steven Walker – who completed a plumbing course with access training told us that he “had no previous experience of plumbing before” and that he found the course particularly helpful because “the course simulates real life situations” he also went on to say that “being a self-employed plumber is the best job he has ever had”

Students, who attend the courses provided by access training, come from all walks of life. Some or our students, like Anthony Blundell did not have any professional experience when he enrolled on one of our carpentry courses. We asked Anthony about his time spent with Access Training, Anthony replied by saying “I enjoyed the course because it was delivered at the right level” he also mentioned that he hasn't stopped working since he has finished his training course, and that he hasn't had to do any advertising because all of his opportunities are made by recommendation.

Scott Daily also didn't have any professional experience when he enrolled on one of our Electrician courses. After becoming a fully trained electrician he informed us that “[this] course has led to me becoming self-employed as an electrician.” He also added that with his new qualifications he was able to expand his families building and roofing business.

Before Alex Dyer enrolled with us on a gas engineering course, he was already working as a self- employed builder he later told us, “The qualifications I received have opened up new avenues if work for me”.

What is Part P?

What is Part P?

Part p forms a section of the building regulations that were introduced in 2005 to regulate fixed installation work in homes. It is now required for any electrical installation work in a domestic environment must make sure that the work is designed and installed in a manner in which in protects people from electric shocks and electrical fires.

All electrical installations, whether it be, at home, in a conservatory, outbuilding or even the garden must now adhere to the part p building regulations.

Apart from some types of minor electrical installation jobs, such as some installations in kitchens and outdoors, all electrical work must be reported to the local authority or carried out by an electrician who holds the Part P qualification.

Here at Access Training, we have developed an accredited, Electrical Part P (Full Scope) training course.  Our Part P course has been designed so it is easily understood by people who have little to no experience in domestic electrical work.

Part P is on the “benchmark” qualifications without which you will be unable to become a qualified electrician. The skills and knowledge taught over our Electrical Part P – Full Scope qualification are transferable to all trades,  including; Electricians, Plumbing, Heating engineers, Builders, Property developers, Kitchen fitters, and even landscape gardeners.

If you enrol onto our Part P course you can expect to gain an intricate knowledge of building regulations for domestic electrical installation, electrical safety legislation, standards and regulations, conducting pre-work surveys/inspections, and safe isolation procedures. You will be able to identify unsafe electrical situations, check installed components as well as install and replace components, plus more.
