JTL to offer new Domestic Electrician Standard

JTL, the national training provider for electrical and plumbing and heating apprenticeships, is to continue its work supporting the changing needs of electricians, as it plans to offer the new Domestic Electrician Standard.

Whilst the apprenticeship standard is still in development, JTL is planning to deliver the new Domestic Electrician Standard as soon as it becomes available, which is expected in late 2022/early 2023.

Designed to take a minimum of three years to complete, the new Domestic Electrician Standard is intended to culminate in candidates receiving a Level 3 Electrotechnical in Dwellings Qualification as well as a Domestic Electrician’s Gold Card.

The Domestic Electrician Apprenticeship Standard is intended to train domestic electricians in the best methods for the installation and maintenance of electrical services within domestic dwellings. As part of the course, it is hoped that participants will have the opportunity to explore the use of low carbon technology within the home, potentially including the installation and maintenance of electric vehicle charging points and Solar PV systems.

Liam Sammon, Director of Learning and Innovation at JTL, said: “At JTL, we are looking forward to being able to offer this brand-new Domestic Electrician Standard once it’s available, which is expected in late 2022/early 2023. As a not-for-profit work-based learning provider, where all our funding is reinvested in apprenticeship training, we pride ourselves on being able to offer electricians and apprentices the most comprehensive and up to date training around – ultimately ensuring that safe working practices and high standards are upheld by our electricians.

“Given the growing interest in green technologies, JTL is highly conscious of the need to train our electricians in the installation and maintenance of low carbon systems, and we hope that this new standard will prepare them for doing just that.”
