Logic4training’s New Entrant Domestic Electrical Installer course is a flexible training programme for candidates who want to begin a career in the domestic electrical sector.
It gives candidates the skills, knowledge and qualifications required to start work as a domestic electrical installer, while acting as a foundation for further training.
The New Entrants Domestic Electrical Installer (NEDEI) training programme (Foundation & Advanced) is for candidates who are looking to start a career as a domestic electrical installer but do not yet have the skills and knowledge to join an electrical competent person scheme (CPS).
The Foundation Course is an ideal starting point for a career as a domestic electrical installer, covering all the core competencies required to install and maintain electrics in residential properties.

The Foundation Course is also for Installers whose primary role is not electrical but may involve elements of wiring or electrical installation.
The Domestic Electrical Installer Foundation Course starts with the basic electrical installation and safety, covering everything required to install and maintain electrical installations in a domestic setting, such as re-wiring a house or simple jobs such as new sockets and light fittings.
All topics are broken down into easy-to-digest sections, with industry recognised qualifications and certificates of competence awarded on completion of each module.
