Electrical Installation Level 2 at North Kent College

Course description

This course advances learners understanding of 
the techniques and practices used within the Electrical 
and Building Service industries. Learners practice the 
installation of domestic (240V) and industrial (up to 10,000V) 
wiring and electrical components including circuit breakers, 
consumer units, lighting and power circuits, 
in accordance with industry standard regulations. 
The course focuses on developing the hands on 
use of tools and components to complete real 
installations, and develops students theoretical 
knowledge of the underpinning maths and 
science which explain how these systems work. 

This course includes the opportunity to take part in an industry placement in a sector relevant to your qualification and study programme. The placement will take place 1 or 2 days per week on the days when you are not in college studying. Industry placements are designed to give you the skills to start work at the end of your studies, progress into an apprenticeship, or to add to your UCAS statement.
