    Course Overview

    This award combines two existing EAL initial verification/periodic inspection and reporting qualifications (EAL 4337/4338) which give the delegate an understanding of the theory and practice involved with the initial verification and commissioning and also 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.

    To give delegates theoretical and practical experience in the implementation of a formal inspection and testing regime for electrical equipment (portable appliances).

    Electricians who have already qualified for IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition and 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.
