Low Voltage Courses
The Faraday Training Group’s low voltage courses are suitable for those who wish to undertake training for voltages below 1000V. Our comprehensive list of Low Voltage courses can be found below:
Up-Skilling – Electrical skills training to become an Electrically Competent Person
Today’s industrial technician is moving from being a specialist and evolving into a multi-skilled environment. This course is designed over a course of five-day modules to up skill mechanical and non-electrical technicians with the aim of making them electrically competent to carry out limited electrical tasks in a safe and professional manner.
UK Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 – A1
This course explains the requirements and the implications of the UK Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 for those responsible for electrical safety at work. The duties and responsibilities of everyone affected by the legislation are clearly outlined.
Live Testing on Systems up to 1000 Volts AC – L1
This course is designed to provide best practice in safe working methods for those who need to perform live testing on various AC electrical equipment and systems. Instructions will be provided to personnel regarding the need and justification for performing tasks or fault finding on or near live LV conductors, in accordance with statutory regulations.
Live Testing on AC & DC Systems up to 1000V AC / 1500V DC – L2
This course is designed to provide best practice in safe working methods for those who need to perform live testing on various electrical equipment and systems. Instruction will be provided to personnel regarding the need and justification for performing tasks, or fault finding on or near live LV conductors, in accordance with statutory regulations. Due to the inclusion of DC modules there will be less exposure to AC equipment, which is covered in more detail within the L1 course.
Electrical Safety Awareness – E2
This course is designed to provide guidance on working safely on low voltage electrical equipment & systems (up to 1000V AC / 1500V DC) located within industrial environments. The course will assist employees and companies to reduce the risk of personal injury, due to electrocution and arc flash, and help prevent damage to assets due to operator error.
Low Voltage Authorised Person Training – S11
This training course is aimed at experienced Electricians/Engineers who will be LV authorised to carry out switching operations for the safe isolation and de-isolation of low voltage power systems up to 1000 volts AC and 1500 volts DC. Delegates will be introduced to safe operating procedures including lockout/tagout, risk assessment and the issue and control of safety documentation.
EAL Level 3 Award in the In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (PAT – Portable Appliance Testing) (QCF) – EAL 4340
This award gives an understanding of the theory and practice of the in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment; commonly referred to as PAT (Portable Appliance Testing). During the course, practical exercises are undertaken using a range of portable appliance testing equipment. Learners are required to be familiar with, and bring to the course, a copy of the IET Code of Practice (most recent).
EAL Level 3 Award in Requirements for Electrical Installations BS7671:2008 (2015) (QCF) – EAL 5321
This award gives the learner an understanding of the application of the IET Wiring Regulations 17th Edition. It provides a facility for individuals working in the Electro-technical sector to develop and/or enhance their knowledge of the Requirements for Electrical Installation. The qualification covers the full content of BS 7671: IET Wiring Regulations 17th Edition incorporating amendment no.3 (2015). The regulations apply to the design, erection and verifications of electrical installations and additions and alterations to existing installations.
EAL Level 3 Award in the Initial Verification and Certification of Electrical Installations (QCF) & EAL Level 3 Award in the Periodic Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations (QCF) – EAL 4337&4338
These awards give the delegate an understanding of the theory and practice involved with the initial verification and commissioning, as well as the periodic inspection, testing and condition reporting of both single and three phase electrical installations. These awards follow BS7671 and the industry recognised IET Guidance Note 3.
