The course will focus on Electrical Inspection and Testing which involves some degree of hazard. It is the inspector’s duty to ensure their own safety and that of others. The seminar is based on IEC 60364 (Low voltage Inspection and Testing and Medium voltage systems).

The focus will be on:

  • Initial verification, commissioning and periodic inspection and testing
  • Inspection and testing regime ensure the safety of people and property
  • Installed equipment is of the correct type and is safe for continuing use.
  • The electrical system is safe for continuing use.
  • The electrical system has not been damaged or otherwise defective
  • For the identification any possible defects that may cause danger
