This is a roll-on, roll-off qualification that is commenced at anytime during the year.

Designed for electrical professionals, consultants and engineers who are responsible for the electrical design, specification, installation and testing process, this qualification provides an opportunity for electricians to take electrical design to the next level. 

The Level 4 course is an advanced course that offers in-depth theoretical training in electrical design and cable calculations. It offers anyone with an existing testing qualification the opportunity to enhance their knowledge, allowing for greater potential career development particularly in electrical supervision and design.

During the course, learners will develop an understanding of the concepts, processes and practices involved with the design, construction and initial verification of electrical installations. The emphasis is on the safe and ergonomic design on an installation which complies with relevant regulations; industry standards, and sound engineering practices.

Course units include:

  • Relevant statutory and non-statutory requirements
  • Electrical installation design
  • Installation methods
  • Verification procedures

Design, installation and verifications are in line with the requirements of BS 7671.

This qualification is suitable for learners who have successfully complete either the EAL or City & Guilds Level 3 Electrical Installation qualification or similar.
