Looking to do this course myself during the summer but am having difficulty finding course providers in the Lancashire / Northwest region.
Also putting me off a bit is the cost , upwards of £700 for 3-4 days tuition is hardly good value in my eyes.
And C&G's constant fannying about with electrical qualifications in general doesnt inspire much confidence lol.
Anways , good luck to the forum members who are undertaking this course , any tips , views and opinions will be gladly recieved by the rest of us.

Well done Sammy, you must be a very well looked-after man. I envy your ability to lock yourself away and commit to it, because that is surely what you have done. I'm on 40 hours hard-found, but still a long way to go.

Mine will only be in two days' early. It's a long drive just to hand in a project, so a nice lunch with a friend booked to make it feel like a real day off.

The other colleges don't seem to have a deadline?

Sweet of you Sammy but far from the truth. Struggling to meet the deadline and I might yet miss it. Even getting a day off work to go up and deliver the project isn't easy. So, I might have to register elsewhere for the August or end of year deadline instead of this May one which would be a real shame but I'm doing my best to find the time. I just want this over. Something nice in the midst...my boss printed me off a fantastic A1 sheet of symbols today which I'll bring home for a weekend. Little things like that are quite motivating.

I'm heartsore for you Sammy that you went back home with yours and hope it's nothing too major. Of one thing I am certain....your maths will be right.

B6, How about some friendly words of encouragement for your troups? We are feeling low.

Get on a building services HNC/HND - as far as electrickery in buildings is concerned, if you have a good grasp at 2396 at level 4, then you know a lot of what you need to know. Have the confidence to use what you've learned and you'll be fine.

I would suggest a top up in BS 5266 and BS 5839 would be useful for you and get to grips with some basic lighting design when you have a free moment.

Adding the mechanical modules in the Building Services HNC/HND will give you a personal challenge for sure, but will be rewarding and will have significant value from an employment perspective

Trust me, I'm a consultant -

Take a look at this site.

I used to teach the HNC in Electrical & Electronic Engineering to London Electricity, and later EDF, power engineers.

The course includes electrical services (installations) which, at the time I taught it, represented around 20% of the HNC.

This may not be exactly what you want as it does not appear to offer any mechanical building services modules as part of the electrical HNC. However, it might still be worth contacting them as it will give you an insight into what to expect.

Be warned - the level of this course is far in excess of anything you have probably encountered before - but all things are possible if you are prepared to put the effort in.

Regards

Day 4 in the big house and I am now very bored with roots growing out of my backside sitting on this chair. I have just stopped punching in circuit data in to my home made spread sheet having done about a 1/4 of what I have to do. Oh how I love my Amtech which does all this lot for me in a twinkle of an eye instead of the labour intensive way.

LoL - I keep telling you - that's not design, it's just verification !!

Index circuits John - heaviest load, longest length, and lightest load, near end conditions for the worst favoured circuit of each type - do Ib, CCC and volt drop first - limiting Zs and thermal constraints under short circuit/earth fault will almost certainly comply

Remember compliance with BS 7671 doesn't need an exact answer - just that it's "more than, less than" your agreed circuit criteria.
