EAL Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installation
After completing this course, you may also progress to advanced qualifications at Level 3.
Our qualifications can lead directly into employment, offering you the chance to develop their skills and knowledge to a high standard recognised by the industry.
This qualification allows the learner to acquire knowledge and craft skills of electrical installation. It does not require occupational evidence from the workplace, so is suitable for learners who currently do not work within the electrical Industry (but may wish to do so). It will give the learner an opportunity to practice and be assessed in a secure environment on the installation of wiring systems together with the relevant theory of electrical installation. The learner has the opportunity to utilise the IET On-Site Guide with some of the units and also acquire the knowledge of
electrical science and principles.

Within the qualification the learner will have the opportunity to utilise the IET On-Site Guide, and also be introduced to how regulations (including BS7671) affect electrical installation. The qualification covers
