Are you a licenced electrician looking to advance your career? If you want to broaden your skill set, an inspection and testing course could be the next step.
Who should sign up for this course?
This course is best for electricians who have already certified for the 18th Edition of the IET Wiring Regulations and want to perform inspection, testing, commissioning, periodic inspection, testing, and condition reporting. And it is also for those practising electricians who have not carried out inspection and testing since qualifying.
This course is also appropriate for people who have little prior experience performing first inspections of electrical installations, such as those who are transitioning from another engineering discipline or related trade.
Inspection and Testing at EAL Level 3
This EAL Level 3 Award in the Initial Verification and Certification course was created to adhere to BS 767, IET Guidance Note 3, and the ESC’S best practice recommendations and are a comparable replacement for the City & Guilds 2391-50 course.
This course will cover both single and three-phase systems, and its goal is to provide you with an understanding of the theory and techniques involved in the initial commissioning and verification of electrical installations. Your electrical inspection and testing abilities will improve as a result of the training, which will also increase your work prospects.
Reasons to Earn the Inspection and Testing Award
A set of credentials that an electrician will often hold includes the EAL Level 3 Award in Electrical Installation Inspection, Testing, Certification, and Reporting. For instance, an electrician who holds an ECS Gold Card as an Installation Electrician can become a JIB Approved Electrician by meeting the inspection and testing requirements.
In larger electrical businesses, approved electricians are frequently regarded as supervisors. Additionally, it aids the certification holder in demonstrating and proving their expertise in this area.
You can examine, test, document, and certify both new and old electrical installations without a specialised Inspection and Testing Award. However, the requirements specify that the individual who completes the report must be competent. Qualifications and experience are typically used to judge competence.
The qualification is designed to help experienced electricians grow or improve their knowledge, abilities, and understanding of electrical inspection and testing.
EAL Level 3 Inspection and Testing Course include the following:
- Qualification introduction
- Requirements for initial verification
- Completion of certificates
- Inspection of installation
- Commissioning of system
- Dead testing practices
- Live testing practices
- Safe testing
- Safety of the system
The minimum age requirement for learners is 16. This qualification has no official admission criteria. But candidates must be capable of fulfilling all requirements for the qualification. In particular, learners must be able to show that they possess the minimal literacy and numeracy skills needed to complete the learning objectives and assessments.
You will be able to pursue additional recognition in the electrical business and continue on to take another course after successfully completing this course.
