1st of September 2021 Is the deadline for becoming registered with Competent Persons Schemes (CPS) such as NICEIC or NAPIT with the Domestic Installer or short courses route.

From the deadline short courses will no longer be a viable route into the industry for domestic installer, who instead must complete the full NVQ Level 3 Diploma in order to register with their chosen scheme.

This stricter entry criteria has been part of the EAS changes introduced this year to ensure all bodies are practicing at the same standards, due to the JIB "Gold Card," having the entry standards of the full NVQ, the other schemes will also need to adhere to this practice.

Good news is the industry will become more uniformed in the standards of work and the level of understanding among Electricians, and will be a significant step forward for the entire industry.

Martyn Allen, Electrical Safety First’s Technical Director, said:

“We very much welcome the EAS update and are delighted to see NICEIC and ELECSA promoting these vital changes.

In industries such as ours, competence is key, and safety is paramount. The changes seen within this update are essential as collectively we strive to raise standards and protect consumers.”

We are here to help, we are offering an additional 2391-52 Classroom date 2nd of August 2021, to help those trying to get registered before the deadline changes.

After the deadline changes we offer the full route from 2365 Level 2 Diploma, 2365 Level 3 Diploma to the to the 2357 NVQ. For more information on any of our courses call our course advisor on 07706624712.
