"Why such good value?
What's the catch?"
We keep being asked why is your 15 day Domestic Electrician Course so cheap in comparison to other electrical training providers and what’s the catch?
The simple answer is we are not cheap and there is no catch, some of our competitors are simply over pricing and uncompetitive! We manage all of our business costs with close scrutiny so that we can keep all of our overheads as low as possible and not pass any additional costs on to our customers. This in turn allows us to be competitive and realistic with our course prices.
We also recognise that financially times are tough at the moment and people are not prepared or able to pay unrealistic training course costs.
We are so convinced that our 15 Day Domestic Electrician Course is the most competitive package on the market today we will even price match if you manage to find an equivalent course for less elsewhere.
Who is this course for?
Our most popular electrical course, it is the only one of its kind in the UK and includes an additional week of practical, hands on experience in purpose built flats.
This Package was designed to give you the core qualifications, confidence, DIY practical tool skills and knowledge to start carrying out domestic electrical installations. If you are new to the industry or have some experience and would like additional practical experience, tool skills, advice on setting up and marketing your business to generate work opportunities, then this is the right course for you.

If you would like any further information about our Domestic Electrician Package please call us on 01444 872145 and we will be delighted to help you. We understand that it may not be practical to train over 4 consecutive weeks so you can break the course up and complete it a week at a time and pay a week at a time. Please ask our sales staff for more information.
Can I carry out electrical work after this course?
Yes, you will be able to carry out domestic electrical work after successfully completing the course. This means both minor electrical works such as adding to or making a change to an existing electrical circuit, and notifiable electrical work. With notifiable electrical work it is important to note that building control must be notified.
Can I split the course up?
Yes, you can. Each of the course modules can be booked as a standalone course using the drop down menu at the top of the page. We would suggest keeping the courses in the order you find them in Domestic Electrician Package.
Can I make the payment in instalments?
If you wanted to break the payments up into more manageable chunks, consider our pay as you train option. Pay a deposit of £900 to secure your chosen course dates, then simply pay the balance for each individual course 3 weeks before the course start dates. For a more detailed look at this option click here.
What are my next steps?
After completing your course there’s nothing to stop you going out and carrying out electrical work straight away. If you wanted to expand your knowledge and skills, you could consider our Level 3 Inspection and Testing Package. This will teach you how to test three phase circuits that tend to be found in commercial environments as well as how to carry out periodic inspection and testing. Alternatively, if you are considering joining a Part P scheme provider in the future, look at our Domestic Electrician Top Up Course.
Do I have to join a registration scheme such as NICEIC after the course?
Absolutely not. You will be able to undertake non-notifiable and notifiable work, as long as building control are notified.
I don’t have any experience, how do I gain some?
There are several options open to you. One possible route is finding a local electrician who you can work alongside to gain the relevant experience. You can always carry out minor works as more of a gentle introduction to the industry and if any notifiable work does come up you can go through building control yourself. If you want to slowly build your confidence up carrying out work for family is always a possibility. After completing your course you will also be invited to join our EC4U alumni, a supportive network of other electricians who have trained at EC4U. You can use this forum to seek advice, ask questions and find fellow electricians who may be able to offer you experience.
Can you help me after the course?
Once you have completed the course you will be invited to our unique, customer only forum. This is made up entirely of our previous customers who have all completed the same course as you. It can act as a great place for you to network with other electricians, and provides a warm and inclusive environment. We also provide a dedicated technical helpline for all our customers that will take you straight through to one of experienced trainers who will be able to offer support.
