How to become a Qualified Supervisor with EC4U
Looking to become a Qualified Supervisor with a Part P Scheme Provider?
EC4U have designed a unique and flexible solution which allows you to both gain experience and business whilst working towards your Qualified Supervisor qualification.
Why do I need to become a Qualified Supervisor?
In order to sign off your own notifiable work, you need to be registered with a Government Approved Part P Scheme Provider and from September 2021, these Providers will be changing their entry requirements. In order to sign up and join a Part P Scheme Provider, such as NICEIC, you will need 18th Edition wiring regulations qualification, Level 3 Initial Verification qualification, 2 years’ minimum experience and a Level 3 NVQ qualification. The Level 3 NVQ qualification is a new requirement by these providers and we have the solution to help you gain this!

I am new to the industry – How do I become a Qualified Supervisor?
Initially you will need to complete training at our centre in the form of either our Domestic Electrician Course, Domestic Electrician Package, or Domestic Electrician Course +. This will provide you with crucial knowledge and develop your skills as a Domestic Installer. As part of the Domestic Electrician Course and Domestic Electrician Package you will gain your Part P, 18th Edition and Level 2 Inspection and Testing qualifications. If you choose to complete the Domestic Electrician Course + you will gain your Part P, 18th Edition and Level 3 Inspection, Testing and Periodic qualifications. As well as gaining the qualifications, each of these courses will teach you the practical skills you can put towards your NVQ qualification.
Once you have completed your initial training course, you will be ready to start working and building up your experience by completing minor works in domestic settings. You will also be able to complete notifiable works, however, if you are completing any of this type of work you will need to go through your local building control in order to have this work certified and signed off. Now that you are able to start completing electrical work of your own, you can enrol onto our Level 2 2365 Electrical Installation Course, followed by our Level 3 2365 Electrical Installation Course, finally finishing with the Level 3 NVQ 2357 Course. Whilst you complete these courses you can build your 24 months experience.
Please note, there may additional courses you need to complete before you can enrol onto the Level 2 2365 Electrical Installation Course. If you complete either our Domestic Electrician Course or Domestic Electrician Course + then you will need to enrol onto our Experience Course before the Level 2 2365, as this will not only give you the opportunity to fine tune and enhance your practical skills but also cover some of the practical elements from the diploma.
If you complete either Domestic Electrician Course or Domestic Electrician Package as your initial training, you will also need to complete the Level 3 Inspection, Testing and Periodic qualification as this is also a requirement to join a Competent Persons Scheme.
What if I have already completed qualifications with EC4U?
If you have previously completed our Domestic Electrician Package or equivalent qualifications, then you are ready to enrol straight onto our Level 2 2365 Electrical Installation Course, the first step towards gaining your Level 3 NVQ. You will also need to complete a Level 3 Inspection, Testing and Periodic qualification before applying to join. If you have previously completed our Domestic Electrician Course, then you will need to complete our Experience Course and Level 3 Inspection, Testing and Periodic qualification, and if you have completed our Domestic Electrician Course + you will need to complete our Experience Course alongside completing your Top Up Course.
After successfully completing your Level 2 2365, Level 3 2365 and finally your Level 3 NVQ 2357 and gained all the other relevant qualifications, you are eligible to join a Part P Scheme Provider. By joining one of these providers, you will be able to sign off notifiable work and certify that it meets set regulations. Find out how to join a scheme here.
