EAL Level 2 Diploma: Electrical Installation at Loughborough College

Course description

This two-year, part-time evening course is ideal for those wanting to take the first steps towards becoming an electrician whilst working. You will spend your time equally between the workshops and the classroom, learning both the practical side of electrical installation whilst also studying the technical content of the course.

There are no pre-requisites to joining this course; however, a moderate understanding of maths and basic science will be necessary. This programme of study is for two years and, upon completion of the second year, you will be awarded a full Level 2 qualification in electrical installation. From here you will be eligible to find work as an electrician's assistant/mate or progress on to the Level 3 qualification.

Course content

This Diploma covers health and safety, electrical installation theory and technology, electrical installation methods, procedures and requirements, and electrical installation craft skills, as well as electrical science and principles.

Throughout the qualification, you will have the opportunity to utilise the IET On-Site Guide and also be introduced to how regulations, including BS 7671, affect electrical installation. The qualification covers standard circuits as described in the On-Site Guide.

Entry requirements

  • There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification; however, learners must have the minimum levels of literacy and numeracy to comply with the health and safety aspects of the scheme, the completion of the learning outcomes, and the external assessment.

Future opportunities

Upon completion of the Level 2 Diploma, students will be eligible for the EAL Level 3 Diploma in Electrical Installation.
