EAL 7695 Qualified Supervisor Domestic Electrician Course
The full course title is: EAL Level 3 certification in installing, testing and ensuring compliance of electrical installations in dwellings 600/7695/1. Essentially this course is the same as our Domestic Electrician Package with the addition of online learning, in centre exams and the creation of a personal evidence portfolio.
This Domestic Electrician / Installer course is the minimum qualification requirement to join a domestic installer scheme as a qualified supervisor. We will give you all the practical skills and knowledge as a training provider to be able to join a Government approved Part P Scheme, however you will have to pass an independent assessment to demonstrate your competency.
EAL are an awarding body, equivalent to City & Guilds. Find out more about EAL here.
The course will be a combination of practical in centre training, home/online study, ongoing testing to evaluate progress and the creation of your own evidence portfolio.
The practical element of the course will be over a 4 week period and will follow the structure of our Domestic Electrician Package.
The home study element of the course can typically take between 3 – 7 weeks and very much depends on your time and commitment to finish them. Once you have completed the online modules you will need to sit the relevant online exams. You can choose to sit one exam after you have completed each module, or you may prefer to sit multiple exams in one day after finishing a selection of modules.
Alongside completing the home study element, you will need to complete an evidence portfolio whilst you are gaining experience.
Once you have completed all your exams, collated all your evidence and gained a minimum of 24 months experience you will be ready to complete a professional discussion to finish your qualification.

Who is this course for?
This course is aimed at individuals wanting to join a Government approved Part P scheme provider as Qualified Supervisor and sign off all notifiable work according to the current building regulations.
Will I be able to join a Part P scheme provider after completing this course?
It is important to understand the distinction between us and the Part P scheme providers. As a training company we can help you gain the qualifications required to apply for membership, but it is down to the individual schemes as to whether they deem you eligible to join. If you are looking to join a scheme provider, we would highly recommend speaking to them first to check their entry requirements.
What qualifications will I gain?
EAL Level 3 Certification in Installing, Testing and Ensuring Compliance of Electrical Installations in Dwellings – 600/7695/1 EAL Level 3 Award in the Building Regulations for Electrical Installations in Dwellings – 603/0149/1 City & Guilds Level 3 Award in Requirements for Electrical Installations BS7671:2018 – 603/3319/4 EAL Level 2 Award in Fundamental Initial Verification of Electrical Installations – 603/0144/2
How long will it take me to complete this course?
You will need to attend a 4 week practical training course at our centre. Following this you will need to complete home learning which can typically take between 3-7 weeks depending on other commitments. After this you will need to complete the online exams for the home learning modules. Alongside this you will need to build 24 months experience and complete your evidence portfolio. Once all of these components have been completed, you are ready to take part in your professional discussion to complete the course.
Why this course and not an NVQ?
An NVQ qualification that will allow you to join a Part P scheme provider typically takes 2 to 4 years to complete and costs in the region of £10,000. It’s made up of a qualification i.e. the C&G 5357 followed by an assessment typically the AM2S. Like all NVQ’s the qualification is as much about developing personally as it is learning the technical aspects. As a result large sections of the qualification focus on the ‘soft skills’ required by an employee in the workplace. The Qualified Supervisor qualification, being aimed at more mature candidates, places its focus on the technical and legislative reducing the amount of required learning hours. The key thing with this course is that once you’ve completed the initial four weeks, the qualifications gained at this point will allow you to start carrying out electrical work, earning money whilst gaining the experience required for your portfolio and Part P scheme application.
