In this modern world, we are surrounded by and dependent on electrical technologies. Be it the home appliances or the industrial machines, one must have the basic fundamental knowledge of electricity. Especially, how it generates, its flow, and most importantly, knowledge of electrical safety is vital.

This Basic Electricity Course - CPD Accredited course is designed thoughtfully to provide you with the fundamentals of electricity, in a non-mathematical approach and in the most comprehensible manner. The course covers the Basic Terminology and Concepts regarding different forms of electricity, their source, a comprehensive illustration of Static and Current electricity, Electromagnetism, Voltage, Power, and Electric Charge. It also discusses some fundamental laws and principles for you to understand the nature of electricity better.

We are offering this course to both part-time and full-time students, as it is designed to suit both groups to learn at their own pace. To assist you with the process, our experienced tutors are available to support you 24/7.

Please note that this online course & certification does not train you to be a professional electrician or expert enough to be fixing/tweaking with electric/electronic devices.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
