I just recently part p certified and shopped around, found NAPIT better and cheaper, as no extra costs for Periodic Testing, where NICEIC, ELECSA etc all have additional charges.......

Hi, Brace 67, I'm ECA Member but joined NAPIT for Part P for many reasons, but am puzzled by 'Level A'? what's that? you either qualify for scheme or not surely? all supposed to have same requirements for registeration, ie 2371, 2391, etc. please explain as I thought either 'full' or 'defined scope' were only options?

if you do standard pert p then it covers u to do work on circuits as part of your existing job ie kitchen fitters bathrooms etc but you cannot just go to a house and do electrics. if you do the further level a full scope you can carry out all electrics inc consumer units etc and once registered u can self cert all your work

Hi Not allowed to comment on behalf of NAPIT but I believe you have done a defined scope short course? If so you will need exactly the same test equipment and knowledge of its use as for a full scope scheme and have to have & be able to fill in minor works and installation certs.
However I do think NAPIT don't recognise anything other than full scope leckies, & I'm inclined to agree with them as they are primarily an organisation for testing full installations so perhaps should not be accepting members with lesser qualifications/experience,
Obviously biased as NAPIT Member as well as ECA.
good luck with which ever 'club' you do join,
regards

Hi have you you been tested by elcsa yet? I will have to register with them sortly, I have recently completed a 5 day course for part p and would appreciate a bit of info on what the inspector expects.

If you haven`t been inspected yet all the best for when it takes place!!!
