ELECTRICAL COURSES

On the Electrical Maintenance Skills courses, candidates learn about the relevant electrical principles, the legal issues, the dangers and then go on to learn how to terminate cables, read industrial circuit diagrams, use multimeters, insulation testers, voltage testers and proving units etc. The key skill on these courses is being able to isolate three phase systems safely and perform first-line maintenance like replacing motors and sensors.

The PAT Testing course is a no-nonsense skills-based training course that shows candidates how to do PAT testing using a range of testers and equipment.

The City & Guilds courses concerned with the IET Wiring Regulations employ various books, publications etc, and on these courses the practical element of the training is based around getting the candidates to look answers up in the relevant books and work out answers to a range of technical problems posed on the courses.

The series of courses on EAW Regulations, Explosive Atmospheres, Duty Holder and Electrical Isolation are short courses which teach the dangers, the legal requirements, the status of the employer’s procedures etc, and then gets the candidates to perform some useful skills relevant to the course on our training rigs - isolating a three-phase machine, reading the nameplate of an explosion-proof device etc.
