• Product Description

    This course has been designed to give practising electricians a better understanding in the use of test instruments as part of the certification or reporting process. The course provides a good starting point for those wishing to either refresh skills and knowledge or who want to progress onto a more in-depth inspection and testing training qualification.

There are no formal entry requirements to attend the course; however it is ideally suited to practicing electricians that have not carried out inspection and testing since qualifying.
