This Award gives the learner an understanding of the theory and practice of the initial verification and commissioning of both single and three phase electrical installations.
The qualification follows BS 7671 and the industry recognised IET Guidance Note 3, as well as the Electrical Safely Council’s Best Practice Guides.
The Award gives an opportunity for individuals to develop and/or enhance their knowledge and skills in the inspection and testing of single and three phase low voltage electrical installations.
It should be noted that this EAL qualifications is equivalent to the City and Guilds 2394 qualification. The main key difference from the delegates point of view is:
These is no written examination as this is conducted as an online "test" and crucially is an open-book examination, however the practical assessments are exactlky the same as City and Guilds 2394.
Who Will Benefit?
This qualification is for electricians who wish to carry out the inspection, testing and commissioning of electrical installations and would like to obtain a nationally recognised accreditation and certificate and is particularly suited for those individuals who wish to acquire the knowledge and skills associated with Initial Verification and Certification of Electrical Installations.
As the course itself deals with the application of knowledge involved with the inspection and testing of electrical installations, it is anticipated that delegates who wish toi undertake this course should ideally have some electrical experience .
Delegates are required to obtain an up to date copy of the IET Guidance Note 3.
