Electrical Installation Diploma

The Electrical Installation Level 1 Diploma, awarded by City and Guilds, is available at both our Paignton and Newton Abbot Campuses. It is an ideal introduction to electrical training, and allows you to progress to an apprenticeship or the full time Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installation.

This course is perfect for developing essential skills that will form the foundation of your learning. You will learn about electrical science and the key principles in the electrical industry, before applying this knowledge in practical sessions. Workshop lessons will develop your skills in areas such as site and tool safety, as well as various methods of installation.

Upon completion, you can progress to the Level 2 Diploma, or consider entering an apprenticeship/ employment.
