Traditionally recognized as necessary for all installation electricians, this course is increasingly regarded as essential for those who are involved in, or supervise, electrical work such as electrical maintenance, control or instrumentation. Current legal requirements for employee competence in electrical work now require that anyone involved in certain electrical activities – for example, simply choosing the size or type of cable or fuse – must be aware of the regulative requirements associated with such work.
This course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge necessary to successfully sit the City & Guilds 2381 examination, as well as gaining useful information about the technical issues in the Regulations that will help in their work activities.
On completion of the course, participants will understand the regulative requirements
- the scope and object of the Regulations
- the fundamental requirements for safety
- the definitions and terms used in the Regulations
- how protection for safety is achieved
- the correct methods of selection and erection of
- the requirements for special locations
- how inspection and testing should be carried out
- how to use the Regulations in the design, construction
and maintenance of installations.
Who should attend?
Ideal for all those involved in electrical work of any kind. Participants should have an understanding of electrical principles together with an appreciation of electrical installation work practice:
- Distribution Engineers
- Design Engineers
- Installation and Operations Engineers
- Electrical Maintenance Engineers
- Instrument and Control Engineers

This course is considered as a prerequisite for another course: “Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installation (City & Guilds 2391)”, which will be offered after this course.
