Bpec Part P Full Scope qualification (upgrade) Course Overview:
This course covers the training and assessment for the Bpec Part P (Full Scope upgrade) qualification. It is for existing holders of the Bpec Part P Defined Scope qualification wanting to upgrade to the Full Scope qualifications.
It is a 1 day training and assessment course held on a Saturday. After successful completion of this course, the previous defined scope holder will be a full scope Part P holder. This will allow them to join a full scope scheme and certify Level A domestic electrical installation work such as consumer units, new circuits and outside cabling. They will also be able to take the LOGIC Periodic testing and certification course for domestic properties. This allows the holder to issue landlords domestic electricity safety certificates for single phase domestic dwellings.
If the person is a member of a defined scope electrical scheme they must apply to upgrade their membership to full scope (if possible) or join a new full scope competent persons scheme. Gaining the full scope upgrade by itself does not automatically qualify a person to sign off full scope work. They must upgrade their current defined scope scheme. Candidates will also need to hold the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations certificate in order to join a competent persons scheme.
The majority of our students take the Bpec Part P Full Scope course in one go, however this one day upgrade course allows existing Bpec Part P Defined Scope holders the opportunity to upgrade their Part P qualification without having to retake the whole Part P course.
PPL use the Fluke Robin 1652 for all electrical training courses such as the Bpec Part P (Defined scope) electrical course, Bpec Part P (Full scope) electrical course and City and Guilds 2391 electrical course. All our electrical course students receive a PPL discount voucher for the Fluke Robin 1652 worth £250 off the standard RRP of £800 plus VAT.
The course runs on a Saturday (9am to about 4.30pm) with a maximum of 8 students. The full balance is payable on booking.
Should candidates fail the practical assessments, we allow you to complete these reassessments free of charge. However a nominal fee will be charged for any re-training that is required. These assessments and/or re-training will be arranged to suit the candidate.
