Basic and Advanced Electrical Installation Work by Trevor Linsley closely follow the contents of the City and Guilds 2365 Diploma in Electrical Installations (Buildings and Services ). Each chapter of the books is dedicated to one unit in the City and Guilds Diploma. However, some trainee students will follow the EAL Diploma in Electrotechnical Services, so in the attached tables we have supplied two mapping charts that may be of use – feel free to circulate them as you wish.

The first table in the attached document identifies where the EAL Diploma learning outcomes can be found in the Basic and Advanced Books. The second table maps the EAL qualification to the City & Guilds 2365 Diploma in Electrical Installations (Buildings and Services)

Both Diplomas have similar learning outcomes and both awards lead to qualified electrician status.
