Course Overview

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.

Who should attend?

Electricians who wish to carry out inspection, testing, commissioning, periodic inspection, testing and condition reporting. This course is suitable for practising electricians who have not carried out inspection and testing since qualifying. This course is also suitable for those with limited experience of initial inspections of electrical installations, such as those entering industry from other engineering disciplines or who have been working in allied trades.

Examinations

EAL Level 3 Award in the Initial Verification and Certification of Electrical Installations (QCF)

  • 1 on-screen examination comprising of 55 questions.
  • 4 centre based practical assessments consisting of:
    • Initial inspection
    • Earth fault loop impedance testing
    • Insulation resistance testing
    • Commissioning of a 3-phase rig

EAL Level 3 Award in the Periodic Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations (QCF)

  • 2 on-screen examinations consisting of 35 questions. (Please see note below)
  • 2 centre based practical assessments consisting of:
    • Periodic inspection
    • Periodic inspection and testing

*Please note – delegates who have already achieved the EAL Level 3 Award in the Initial Verification and Certification of Electrical Installations (QCF) need only undertake one on screen examination as they will have already been assessed on the common criteria between the two units.

Certification

Delegates who successfully complete the course and both theoretical and practical assessments will receive a Faraday Training Group competence certificate. Delegates who fail or do not wish to undertake the competence assessments will receive a Faraday Training Group attendance certificate.
