About The Course

Course Overview

This course is aimed at practicing electricians who wish to gain qualifications in periodic inspection and testing, as well as initial verification of new systems.  This course has been re-introduced to standardise all industry qualifications for inspection and testing.  It now replaces the stand alone courses.
