    Course Overview

    The course provides guidance on the safe isolation of single-ended low voltage circuits and electrical equipment (up to 1000V AC / 1500V DC). It also 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.

    Who should attend?

    Electrical and non-electrical personnel requiring electrical safety awareness training to enable them to become aware of the hazards associated with the safe isolation and operation of low voltage electrical equipment.

    Compared with LV4, this course covers single end isolations only.


    Candidates who successfully complete the course and both theoretical and practical assessments will receive a Faraday competence certificate. Candidates who fail the competence assessments will receive a Faraday attendance certificate.
