The British Pump Manufacturers’ Association (BPMA) is to hold a three-day electrical competency course at the offices of KSB in Loughborough, UK, from 26-28 November.

The course aims to assist non-electrical staff in their work with low voltage electrical equipment and systems. In many industries, the maintenance and technical workforce has been radically streamlined, putting pressure on company managers to use non-electrical personnel for routine electrical duties.

The course is specifically designed to assist non-electrical employees to prepare themselves for cross trade working and to help companies comply with the requirements of current legislation regarding the use of such people for minor electrical tasks.

Topics covered include:

  • Basic electrical principles
  • Electrical power and units of measurement
  • Electrical test instrumentations
  • Cable and wiring systems
  • Conventional circuit layout
  • Electrical diagrams
  • Health & Safety legislation (related to electricity in the workplace)
  • Safe isolation procedures for low voltage electrical circuits
  • Safe working practices

There are five places still available, so anyone wishing to attend should email marketing@bpma.org.uk as soon as possible.
