Time is running out for Part P CPS

Logic Certification is urging installers looking to join a Part P Competent Persons Scheme (CPS) to do so now before the qualifying requirements change on 6th April.
At present, CPS stipulates the completion of 17th edition wiring regulations and demonstration of competence in installation, inspection, testing and certification. The changes will see an appropriate NVQ Level 3 being the pre-requisite for Qualifying Supervisors (QS) who require Part P CPS membership, a considerably more time-consuming and costly proposition.
Mark Krull, from Logic Certification, said: “The changes to Part P CPS requirements could prove a real barrier for smaller businesses and one man bands, who can’t afford to take time out of work to complete an NVQ Level 3. If you are thinking of joining a Part P CPS this year, do it now, before the April deadline, as existing CPS members will not be required to meet the new stipulation.”
Following the 6th April, Qualifying Supervisors will need to have achieved the appropriate Level 3 NVQ Certificate – Installing, Testing and Ensuring Compliance of Electrical Installation Work in Dwellings, or equivalent. Those responsible for all types of electrical installation will be required to complete the new Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Installing Electro-technical Systems and Equipment (Building and Structures).
Logic Certification has launched a new Domestic Electrical Installer training and assessment package, which covers electrical work as outlined in the Part P Building Regulations and 17th Edition Wiring Regulations. Defined and full-scope options are available.
