The practical work must comply with the current British Standard (BS7671:2018) and meet with the requirements of Health & Safety legislation and industry best practice.
Learners that have not completed the L2 Foundation in Construction & Building Services Engineering qualification will begin the course in Year 1 and complete the L2 Core in Construction and BSE. Learners that have completed the Foundation in Construction & BSE will begin the course on Year 2 and start the L3 BSE in Electrotechnical installation.
