This level 1 course is designed to provide basic electrical skills to those who need to perform first-line electrical maintenance tasks including the safe isolation, replacement and testing of a range of common electrical devices (motors, sensors, heating elements, solenoids, etc.) in a safe and effective manner. Importantly, the format of the course is specifically designed so that, when combined with suitable on-site consolidation of training, it will assist the maintenance manager in meeting the legal requirements for employee competence in electrical work.
On completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Practice safe working methods on electrical systems
- Understand the relevant regulative requirements
- Demonstrate an understanding of electrical principles and units
- Identify a wide range of electrical equipment & devices and understand their principles of operation / connections
- Understand the principles of earthing / protection and associated protective devices
- Demonstrate an understanding of electrical systems, switchgear and circuit types
- Diagnose basic faults and recognise their associated symptoms
- Work with a range of cable types and carry out correct terminations and connections
- Recognise the most common industrial motor types and understand their operation, connections and maintenance requirements
- Use electrical test equipment effectively and carry out testing of a range of motors, solenoids, cables, etc. (using insulation, continuity, tong testers, etc.)
- Identify motor and power circuit faults
- Use circuit diagrams as an aid to maintenance
- Access electrical enclosures and replace fuses, reset overloads etc
- Perform electrical isolation, testing for dead, etc on a wide range of devices and circuits safely.
