Electrical Installation Diploma

The Electrical Installation Diploma Level 3 is the perfect progression route from the The Electrical Installation Diploma Level 2 course and is ideal for anyone looking to pursue a career as an electrician. There are a variety of different ways to work as an electrician, from being self-employed to working on new builds and domestic repairs.

Building upon previous knowledge, you will be looking further into the science, Inspection and Testing and fault finding concepts in both the classroom and workshop environments.

You will be taught by our experienced and dedicated staff two evenings a week, with 50% based in the classroom and 50% practical work in our workshops. Assessments will consist of online exams and practical tasks that are carried out continually as you progress. Some home learning will be required.

You will be studying the basic knowledge and skills required to become an ‘Electrical Improver’ as defined by the J.I.B. (Joint Industry Board) and due to the intensive nature of the course, good attendance is required. You will be required to undertake a diagnostic test in English and maths during your first week of attendance and an electrical initial assessment which is carried out within the first two weeks.

Please note: you will need your own safety boots and work trousers for practical sessions and a scientific calculator and stationery for theory sessions.

Successfully completing this course means that you can progress to a Level 4 programme or undertake the stand alone NVQ to achieve the full Level 3 NVQ Electrician status as defined by the J.I.B. (Joint Industry Board).

“I chose to study at South Devon College as I've always had an interest in trades. It's a great place to learn about the industry before entering the workplace. The staff are really helpful and I prefer the College environment to school as you're treated more like an adult. It’s a really fun and exciting course."Charlie Capewell
