Electrical Design Calculations and Considerations
This online course covers a range of scenarios that require electric circuit designs. This course is intended to get the candidates thinking about each circumstance and then being able to reference BS 7671 and GN1 to find relevant information. Designers need to be able to do this to be capable of competently designing in the real world.
Topics to be covered in scenarios include:
- Circuit current
- Current carrying capacity
- Power factor (as relevant to circuit design)
- Voltage drop
- Earth fault protection
- Protective (both earthing and bonding) conductor sizing
- Thermal constraints (earth fault and short circuit)
- Energy efficiency in regard to circuit design
Please note, the duration of each unit is 2 hours.
Learners are required to have access to a copy of both BS 7671-18 and Guidance Note 1 throughout the course. We would recommend purchasing these before you start your course

The course has been written by Simon Ogborn FIET MSET LCGI, owner and lecturer at Erudite Training Ltd.
Simon has been an electrical engineer for over thirty years, primarily working on critical power supplies within petrochemical plants. After attending college in 2004 to take his Design and Verification qualification, in which he attained a Distinction, he was asked to join the teaching team at Tameside College. Simon started Erudite Training in 2009 with the primary ethos being to teach the subject properly, not just coach for exams. This, in turn lead Simon to be head hunted by City and Guilds, in 2013, to become one of their Technical Consultants.
Simon has been involved in many of the electrical qualifications since then, including working on the 2396 Level 4 Design and Verification. He is therefore ideally placed with technical understanding, teaching skills and the valuable insight into what errors candidates make in their exams.
• Put into practice design techniques learnt.
• Understand earthing and bonding requirements.
• Understand the design of distribution circuits.
• Understand ring circuit applications and designs.
• Understand issues and solutions relating to lighting circuit design.
The course will be aimed at approximately Level 4 (HNC Level) and thus those candidates wishing to undertake must have equivalent understanding as provided by a Level 3 Technical Certificate (such as C&G 2365) or NVQ3. Candidates must also have a working knowledge of BS 7671:2018 or undertake a suitable course.
