The four new runnings of the course, covering the rest of this year, comprise: Sevenoaks on 14-16 September, Liverpool on 12-14 October, Rotherham on 7-9 November and Peterborough on 5-7 December. Only 12 places per course are available.

CESA and CEDA, both represented in the CESRB (Catering Equipment Standards and Registrations Board), worked together with British Gas to deliver this Basic Electrical Skills training.

It allows engineers to demonstrate their knowledge of basic electrical systems and tasks, and receive City and Guilds certification.

The course is primarily aimed at mechanical or un-skilled tradespersons that are preparing themselves for work upon electrical systems.

The course may be of great benefit to companies that intend to employ non-electrical personnel to perform routine electrical duties, such as, lamp replacement or portable appliance testing etc.

At the end of the course candidates should have an understanding of the fundamental aspects of electrical energy; be aware of the need for safety related to electrical systems; be familiar with basic electrical components and test instruments, simple electrical circuit arrangements and electrical regulations, as well as knowing how to perform safe isolation of electrical equipment.

The course fees are £435.00 plus VAT for all employees of CESA and CEDA member companies and £635.00 plus VAT for all non-members. These costs include refreshments during the course days.
