With the streamlining of many maintenance and technical departments, managers often have to use non-electrically trained personnel for routine electrical duties.
This course is designed to help non-electrically trained employees prepare for work on a range of electrical systems. This means that companies can comply with UK legislative requirements regarding the use of such personnel for electrical tasks.
This course is suitable for people like mechanical maintenance engineers, servicing and equipment installation personnel and those who work with low voltage electrical equipment and systems.
This is usually taken as an extension to a three-day Basic Electrical course. It looks at both practical and theoretical issues related to electrical motors, including principles of operation, wiring connections, starting methods, testing and fault diagnosis.
This course may be particularly useful to non-electrical personnel who are required to perform routine electrical duties on low-voltage electrical equipment and systems.
It's also ideal as a stand-alone, independent course for those who need specific information and training about the basic electrical maintenance of motors, control devices and associated accessories.
This course helps raise the level of electrical safety awareness for those required to access low-voltage electrical panels or enclosures, such as machine and process operators.
It’s mainly aimed at non-electrically trained and non-technical employees who, although not expected to hold specific electrical responsibilities, have a duty to their colleagues and their own personal safety through current employment legislation.
The course will cover protective device resetting, process adjustment/configuration and the taking of readings. It will also cover the current legislation.
This course helps non-electrical staff with some experience of electrical systems who may have to carry out electrical isolation tasks. This includes staff who may require authorisation to carry out isolation for maintenance purposes.
The course includes formal Permit to Work procedures for on-site operation, giving staff the knowledge to perform safe isolation of low-voltage systems and equipment.
Assessment methods include an online multiple-choice examination, a written examination and a practical assessment.
