As we are facing a high demand for course places, we kindly ask you to confirm your place as soon as possible.
If you do not confirm this booking within this period, unfortunately we cannot hold the place for you and the provisional booking request will be removed from the system.
Do you have to be working as an electrician on your electrical courses?
Yes and no. You do need to be working in a healthcare environment, but we do offer a Mechanical to electrical conversion course for non-electrical staff who will be required to work on and around electrical machines and equipment.
On completion of the course delegates will be able to diagnose simple electrical faults and have an understanding of the possible causes and carry out necessary isolations and repairs, whilst understanding their limitations and hazards associated with the electrical systems and machines.
Will I need any refresher training?
