Important note to employers

The candidate cannot be considered as ‘competent’ (ref EAW reg 16) after this course.

Our intention is to focus on ‘knowledge’ and provide guidance on the practical techniques of certain activities.

It is then essential that the company provides regular opportunities for practicing those activities under supervision, until the candidate reaches a point where the company deems them ‘competent’ to carry out those ‘specified’ tasks.

Although there are tests and assessments, there is no ‘pass or fail’ on this course. We will provide feedback to you (the company) on the strengths and weaknesses of the candidate and where further in- house training and guidance might be required, or suggested limits on authorised tasks.

It is assumed that the employer provide suitable PPE, tools and test equipment including voltage indicator, proving unit and insulation resistance testers in accordance with HSG85 and GS35. These need to be readily and easily available on site.

Limitations of training

Electrical maintenance work where there is a continuous presence of a fully qualified and experienced electrician on site. Because of the limitations of the time, equipment and scope of this training, a candidate would not be competent to work alone without any competent person to call upon if a task was beyond his/her competence. It is highly recommended (if this is the intention) to complete an accredited NVQ level 3 in electrical maintenance, were more in-depth, company specific, supervised training and assessment would be acquired.

Work on control panels constructed to IP2X only (finger proof). The candidate will be trained to inspect a control panel for safety, where live terminals are exposed he/she will be instructed to close up the panel and report the issue to the engineering manager. It will be either isolated by others further up stream in order for work to be carried out in that panel, or remedial work to improve the safety of the panel.

No installation, modification or alteration work is covered by this course. Specialist competence is required i.e. the 18th Ed Wiring Regulations and Experience.

No PLC or VSD programming work. Although we will be doing some basic programming, this is introduced purely for underpinning knowledge in order to appreciate typical systems.

General isolation procedures only. As there are so many different company specific procedures used on site, we will only cover the basic requirements as required by regulation 13 of The Electricity at Work regulations. It is expected that the candidate be familiar with their own company specific procedures for the on-site assessment.

It is expected that the company provides suitable PPE, tools and test equipment in order for him/her to carry out the expected role safely.

The candidate must be provided with regular supervised practice in order for him/her to maintain competence, otherwise the training will be quickly forgotten.

Duration: 6 days at TTE plus 1 day on site per delegate (on-site activities to be discussed).

Maximum delegates: 6

Delivered as a group booking for a minimum of 4 delegates. Or as an open course (dates available on request).
