Instruction and assessment in selection, critical functions, fault analysis and safety

aspects of low voltage electrical distribution installations. The aim of this course is to

raise the standard of knowledge and skill amongst learners concerned with the

design, installation or maintenance of low voltage electrical distribution and power

switching component systems, including modern ‘cutting edge’ technology and

engineering ‘codes of practice’.

Target Audience

This course is designed to suit Systems Integrators, OEM’s, Consulting Engineers,

End Users or anyone designing or maintaining electrical distribution in the electrical



You will need advanced background in Electrical, Technical and Engineering principles.

• It is also recommended that students bring calculators and laptops without

administrator rights
