Practical industrial electrical training course for engineers

The days of one man one job in industry are now long gone and there is a strong need to have maintenance engineers that are capable of many diverse skills.  As there is a heavy reliance of electrically powered machinery and systems it is essential that maintenance engineers and technicians have a good, basic understanding of electrical theory and regulations as well as the practical skill essential to carry out electrical work safely in a work environment. 

This ten-day course adopts a practical approach to enable delegates to gain a working knowledge the of electrical control systems and focusses on developing the electrical skills and knowledge needed by those who have been employed in a mainly mechanical environment.

  • Course content
  • During the course the delegates will cover the following subject areas in depth.
    • Lighting circuit two way and intermediate
    • Power Circuits – domestic
    • Terminating cables
    • Testing procedures
    • Instrument
    • Insulation and continuity tester
    • Visual inspection
    • Earth continuity (circuit protection conductor)  low resistance
    • Polarity (switches in live conductor)
    • Insulation test high resistance MegOhms
    • Control circuits – ELV 1v to 50v
    • Motor control circuit EM1,2 and 5
    • Testing – multimeter volts low voltage/resistance
    • Single phase safe isolation procedures
    • Three phase safe isolation procedures
  • Pre-requisites
  • Whilst there are no pre-requisites for this course it is expected that delegates will have some mechanical engineering experience and will have worked around basic domestic or industrial electrical systems.

  • Assessment
  • Whilst there is no formal assessment on this training course, the delegates will need to demonstrate that they have the underpinning knowledge and the requisite skills to operate safely at all times with electricity.  On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate of attendance. 

  • More details
  • Career progression:

    By the end of this course the delegates will have developed a good working knowledge of the regulations, the health and safety and approved codes of practice of working with electricity and electrical systems.  They will:

    • Understand how to safely isolate and test electrical circuits
    • Be able to identify common components and describe how they function
    • Be apply fault-finding techniques using appropriate test procedures/instrumentation
    • Be able to apply safe working practices when working with electrical systems.
