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:
LV1 – The Safe Operation of Low Voltage Power Systems (LOTO)
This course is designed to provide guidance on the safe isolation of single-ended low voltage circuits and electrical equipment (up to 1000V AC / 1500V DC). The course aims to assist employers and employees to reduce the risk of personal injury, due to electric shock and arc flash and also to help prevent damage to assets due to operator error.
LV5 – Refresher in the Safe Operation of Low Voltage Power Systems (Authorised Person)
This course is designed to refresh the knowledge, skills and experience of the candidates relating to safe practices and legislation applicable to low voltage power systems. It enables candidates to perform advanced LV switching operations on industrial LV networks up to 1000 volts AC and 1500 volts DC. It includes both classroom theory and practical exercises.
BUP – Basic Electrical Upskilling
This course is designed to enhance the candidate’s knowledge of statutory regulations, codes of practice, safety procedures and technical aspects of low voltage power systems. Its aim is to raise the level of safety awareness for persons working on or in the vicinity of electrical low voltage equipment. This course covers safety rules, regulations and guidelines related to current legislation.
EAL Level 3 Award in Requirements for Electrical Installations BS7671:2018 (18th Edition Wiring Regulations)
This award gives the learner an understanding of the IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition. It provides a facility for individuals working in the electrotechnical sector to develop and/or enhance their knowledge of the Requirements for Electrical Installations. The qualification covers the full content of BS 7671 IET Wiring Regulations, 18th Edition. The regulations apply to the design, erection and verifications of electrical installations including additions and alterations to existing installations.
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.
A1 – UK Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
This course explains the requirements and the implications of the UK Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 for those responsible for electrical safety at work throughout the industry, commercial premises, shops, offices, schools, hospitals etc. The duties and responsibilities of everyone affected by the legislation are clearly outlined.
LV2 – Live Testing on AC & DC Systems up to 1000V AC / 1500V DC
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 candidates regarding the need and justification for performing tasks, or fault finding on or near live LV conductors, in accordance with statutory regulations.
LV4 – The Safe Operation of Low Voltage Power Systems (Authorised Person)
This course is aimed at experienced electricians/engineers who will be authorised to carry out LV switching operations for the safe isolation and de-isolation of low voltage power systems up to 1000V AC. Candidates will be introduced to safe operating procedures including lockout/tagout and the issue and control of safety documentation.
EAL 4340 – EAL Level 3 Award in the In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (PAT – Portable Appliance Testing) (QCF)
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 testing (Portable Appliance Testing). During the course, a number of practical exercises are undertaken using a range of portable appliance testing equipment. It will give delegates theoretical and practical experience in the implementation of a formal inspection and testing regime for electrical equipment (portable appliances).
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. This also includes the commissioning, 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.
