  • Practical
    • Safe Isolation
      • Single phase
      • Three phase
    • Continuity
    • Insulation resistance
    • Polarity
    • Earth electrode resistance
    • Earth loop impedance
    • Prospective fault current
    • Prospective short circuit current
    • RCD
    • Functional
    • Documentation completion
    • EICR coding demonstration

Day 5:

  • Revision and review of days 1 – 4
  • Exam Prep

After completion of training, candidates will also need to complete their online and practical assessments. This will be confirmed by the admin team after booking the course.
There are no formal entry requirements to attend the course however it is ideally suited for practicing electricians who have not carried out inspection and testing since qualifying, or who require some form of update before moving on to other electrical inspection qualifications.
 
This course is aimed at contractors looking to gain knowledge and practical understanding of the initial verification and certification of electrical systems and those looking to gain knowledge of how to complete the new Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).
 
Non-practising electricians would find it hard to achieve this qualification and we would recommend attending the 1 day Test and Measurement Workshop prior. This course will give candidates the ability to understand how to use test instruments and interpret their readings.
Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a much better understanding of initial verification and the periodic inspection and testing process.

Delegates will learn:
 
  • The legal responsibilities of an inspector
  • The reasons for electrical inspection
  • Practical testing techniques
  • How to complete Electrical Installation Certificates (including the inspection and test results schedules)
