Welcome to Apex Consulting’s: The Basic Fundamentals of Electricity.

This course attracts 2.5 PIRB CPD points.

Our full programme consists of 5 courses:

  1. The Basic Fundamentals of Electricity
  2. The Basic Fundamentals of Electrical Test Instruments
  3. The Basic Electrical Supplies for Water Heaters
  4. Electrical Safety in the Workplace
  5. Earthing and Bonding for Water Heater Systems.

We have decided to break the whole programme up into 5 separate courses for two reasons. Firstly, some plumbers might have slightly more electrical knowledge than others, and therefore might wish to skip course 1 – The Basic Fundamentals of Electricity and move ahead to course 2. Secondly, we decided to split the programme up into 5 courses to make the price more affordable than purchasing the entire course in one go. You can however purchase the entire course here if you wish to do so.
