Emergency lighting is an integral part of commercial and industrial buildings.
All emergency lighting is designed to automatically operate in the event of an interruption of supply, in which case, emergency lighting allows for acceptable illumination levels and also allows for a fixed time period for the system to remain illuminated, to ensure for safe evacuation of persons.
Who Will Benefit?
This course is primarily aimed at individuals including electricians, who are interested in the processes of designing and installing Emergency Lighting Systems.
The course will also look at aspects risk assessment considerations and procedures, for example, to allow for the designation of standard emergency escape routes and to allow for other evacuation procedures.
- Statutory requirements for installing Emergency Lighting Systems to BS 5266
- Site Surveys and fire risk assessing
- Design and planning procedures
- Installation practices
- Pre inspection and use of test equipment
- Commissioning, certification, inspection and reporting
Although this is a non accredited course, we can provide delegates with an optional short examination.
All delegates receive a certificate of attendance with successful delegates passing the optional examination, receiving a certificate accredited by the training provider.
It is expected that delegates have some understanding of electrical system design and we do strongly recommend that prospective candidates are in possession of a successful 17th edition BS 7671 certificate; this is normally evidenced by way of a City and Guilds 2382 qualification. We also suggest that delegates should have some background knowledge of the principles of electrical testing.
Please note that there is no practical "wiring" exercises on this course, however we will be adding a 1 day practical emergency lighting course in the early part of 2013.
The course either has new dates in data loading, or is only run as a dedicated or In Company course.
