2382 18th Edition Wiring

The City & Guilds 18th Edition Wiring Regulations training course is aimed at practising electricians with relevant experience and other allied professionals needing to update and enhance their understanding of the wiring regulations. The Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) publish the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations as British Standard BS7671:2018 Blue Book. The Regulations apply to the design, erection and verification of electrical installations, also additions and alterations to existing installations.


2391 Periodic Inspection & Testing

The Periodic Inspection Testing training course delivered by experienced engineers leading to the City & Guilds Level 3: the Certificate for the Fundamental Inspection, Testing and Initial Verification of Electrical Installations Training Course, City and Guilds 2391-52.


2377 In-Service Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment

The In-Service Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment (formally known as Portable Appliance Testing) course is designed for those who undertake the inspection and testing of Portable Appliance equipment and are required to interpret results, record findings and label equipment. Candidates are required to demonstrate practical ability to carry out tests and correctly record the results. This qualification was designed by the Institute of Engineers and Technology and City & Guilds. Two qualifications are available and delivered by experienced engineers, Competence for the Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment 2377-22 and Competent Management Requirements for the Maintenance of Electrical Equipment 2377-32.


Electrical Isolation

Electrical Multiskill E1: The Electrical Isolation training course is a basic electrical course covering fundamental theory and basic practice related to the industrial applications of electrical maintenance. Candidates are introduced to and use electrical instruments such as multi-meters, meggers, voltage testers and proving units. Candidates carry out electrical diagnostic tests on three-phase electric motors and can identify motors connected in both star and delta configurations. Candidates are trained to carry out voltage measurements on three-phase and single-phase systems and carry out the proper and correct procedure for Electrical Isolation to carry out electrical work. Candidates construct a Direct-on-line motor starter with 110volt controls and follow through with testing and fault diagnosis. Advanced candidates will construct a reversing starter.


Panel Distribution Circuits

Electrical Multiskill E2: The Panel Distribution Circuits training course introduces candidates to how electrical panels are wired and constructed. Candidates are introduced to the safety features that should be present on all panels and can identify the relevant electrical circuit protection features. Candidates will be introduced to circuit diagrams with three-phase and single-phase circuit distribution voltages and protection devices. Candidates are introduced to carrying out fault diagnosis in a safe, systematic and structured manner.


Control Panels

Electrical Multiskill E3: The Controls Panels training course introduces candidates to control circuits where external devices act as interlocks or safety devices and automatic control functions can occur. Candidates are introduced to the correct methods for connecting control devices into circuits and glanding and terminating in control panels. The emphasis of this course is in understanding electrical devices that are used in control circuits and being able to interpret how they are used in circuits that control power components. Candidates gain further experience in fault diagnosis, particularly with external plant mounted devices.


PLC Electrical Circuits

Electrical Multiskill E4: The PLC Electrical Circuits training course builds on the previous Control Panels course by recognising that most industrial equipment is now controlled by PLC systems and introduces candidates to the applications and use of PLCs. Candidates are taught how electrical devices are wired into a PLC Input and the differences in connecting to a PLC Output. Candidates are introduced to the way that a Ladder diagram controls PLC outputs and how to use it as an effective fault diagnostic tool. Candidates are also introduced to the technology of Safety Relays and how they are used and connected to improve control circuit and machine operation safety.


Motor Circuits & Invertors

 Electrical Multiskill E5: The Motor Circuits Invertors training course introduces candidates to motor starter circuits where soft starting devices are used, or motor speed is controlled and varied using an Invertor. The emphasis of this course is in recognising the devices as Invertors or Soft starters, understanding their operation and being able to recognise normal operation and fault conditions.

Electro Pneumatics

Electrical Multiskill E6: The Electro-pneumatics training course enables trainees to understand how pneumatics and electrical/electronics and Programmable Logic Control works within an overall machine control system. Be able to differentiate between pneumatic or an electrical type of fault; see how programmable logic and sequences can enhance machine automation and control. Use a variety of other electro-pneumatic components to assemble and test a circuit in conjunction with relays and a PLC. Interpret electro-pneumatic circuits and understand what components do within the circuits. Use electrical and pneumatic fault finding techniques to ascertain the nature of a fault – control system, flow, pressure, directional, actuator or machine-related.


Control & Instrumentation

The Control & Instrumentation training course covers the practical maintenance aspects of industrial instrumentation with three modules Measurement, Valves and Controllers and is designed to be progressive with each module building on the previous. Training consists of three training modules normally delivered over 8 days in two blocks of four days or a similar combination to suit shift working patterns. This is a highly practical training course focusing on industrial Instrumentation maintenance practices and fault-finding procedures, with a lot of the training being hands-on work directly related to the course content.
