• Product Description

    This 5 day course provides delegates with the knowledge and practical skills required to complete Electrical Installation Certificates or Minor Works Certificates for electrical installations before putting them into service. 



    There are no formal entry requirements although it is aimed at experienced electricians and it is expected that candidates have experience of electrical installation work and a good understanding of electrical science and principles. Additionally, it is strongly recommended that candidates hold a qualification related to the latest edition of BS 7671 – Requirements for electrical installations (18th Edition).

    Prior to attendance, those wishing to refresh their knowledge of inspection and testing should undertake some pre-reading of relevant parts of BS 7671 in particular:

    • Chapter 64 – Initial verification
    • Chapter 65 – Periodic inspection and testing
    • Appendix 6 – Model forms for certification and reporting 



    Successful candidates will improve their skills and understanding of inspecting and testing of new and existing single and three-phase installations in line with the requirements of BS 7671 as well as the correct completion of certification and reporting to be able to demonstrate a much better understanding of initial verification and the periodic inspection and testing process.
