Electrical Installations (Buildings and Structures) – Level 2 Diploma


The Level 2 Diploma is an intensive course to prepare you for a career within the electrical installations industry.

You will learn both practical installation skills in our workshops and the theory and science behind electrics.

In workshop sessions you will learn how to install wiring systems, bond mains services to main earthing terminals and inspect and test a dead electrical installation. You will explore different earthing systems and understand how electricity is supplied.

In theory classes you will learn about the basic principles of electrical science, apply mathematical principles, understand different circuit types and wiring systems for domestic, commercial and hazardous environments.

The structure of our programmes follows clear educational aims that are expected from the awarding bodies. These are all outlined in the programme specifications which include further details such as the learning outcomes.
