Put the spark back into your career; Part P electrician courses are a fantastic way to add electrical work to your toolkit. Whether you’re a plumber, gas engineer, builder or landscape gardener by trade, Part P electrician courses can quickly qualify you to provide electrical work as part of your service. You’ll need to have completed Part P electrician courses if you intend to do electrical work in any of the following:


•    Domestic areas (houses, apartments, flats etc.)
•    Combined domestic and commercial areas (pubs, shops etc.)
•    Common access areas and shared amenities in flats (excluding lifts)
•    Outbuildings (sheds, garages etc.)
•    Gardens
•    Extensions and loft conversions

Of course, without taking Part P electrician courses you can do electrical work but, after you’ve completed it, you’ll need to notify Building Control, organise an inspection and have your work tested and certified. This could cost hundreds of pounds. Meanwhile, if you’re a tradesperson, Part P electrician courses can be claimed against your tax, rendering them free in many cases.


Part P electrician courses can really expand your horizons, and your bank balance! Many jobs that tradespeople carry out in domestic and commercial properties will involve the use of an electrician and, if you’re qualified to carry out electrical work yourself, you’ll be able to make a profit for yourself and a saving (of both time and money) for your client.

Whether you’re just starting out on your career, or are looking to quit your current job and retrain, electrician courses are a great place to start for anyone with a practical bent and excellent problem solving skills. The beauty of electrician courses is they can take you anywhere. Very few people realise it, but there are loads of very different paths electrician courses can lead you down. For instance, you may become a marine electrician or an industrial electrician, which are both very different.

To give you a little taster of the possible jobs you could do after taking the right electrician courses, we’ve compiled this list of a few of the most common career paths people take:

Domestic Electricians
A domestic electrician is essentially your common or garden electrician. This is no slur; domestic electricians require just as many specialist skills and, if anything, require a more extensive and general knowledge of electrical work to deal with all the potential electrical issues which crop up in a home environment. Potential projects may include:

•    Rewiring existing electrical systems
•    Testing alarms systems
•    Installing new appliances
•    Repairing and maintaining electrical equipment

Many people who begin electrician courses start with the vague idea of becoming a domestic electrician. Although a domestic electrician is a well-paid, flexible and satisfying job, there are other options you may not have considered too…

Commercial Electricians

Commercial electricians specialise in dealing with electrical issues which occur in large, public buildings like shopping centres, offices, hospitals and schools.  The scale of these buildings will mean commercial electricians have to deal with larger, more extensive projects. This may involve working as part of a team. In terms of the actual work, it tends to be similar to the work required of domestic electricians, but on a far larger scale.

Industrial Electricians

If you choose to become an industrial electrician, you will be dealing with more specialist knowledge and skills. You will need increasingly specialist electrician courses to become qualified for this role as you need to be familiar with electrical equipment and mechanical equipment which uses electric controls. You will generally be working as the electrician for just one firm, or on a contractual basis for an electrical contractors group.

Marine Electricians
Marine electricians handle a very specific area of electrician work. They deal with all electrical work on board sea-faring vessels, this work can occur on the water or at dockyards. Specialist electrician courses will be needed if you want to get into marine electrician work. Key employers of marine electricians include the military, shipbuilders and government agencies.
