James Eade Accredited Training Programme in temporary power and BS 7909 for the events industry (3 days)

This is a new updated course that supersedes the NA 7909 and Creative Skillset courses

Pilot course price £465 + VAT per person

James Eade has developed a new and updated version of this extremely popular course which has the same industry input and support to ensure it remains relevant and up to date. It also takes into account the latest industry guidance and changes to Standards including BS 7671:2018.

Currently the course is accredited by James Eade and successful candidates will be awarded a certificate accordingly. The course is in the process of being accredited by a national awarding body; as part of that process pilot courses have to be run and feedback from the candidates sought.

The course covers the following areas:

The requirements and practical application of legislation, relevant standards (such as BS 7909 and BS 7671), IET guidance as well as related industry guidance from the ABTT and PLASA

The role earth plays in electrical safety, common earthing arrangements, protective bonding requirements and generator earthing

The application of different electrical protection methods, including the selection of appropriate devices and their correct use.

Testing and inspection of equipment and temporary systems, including the reporting requirements of BS 7909. This also includes a practical element using test equipment supplied by the trainer.

Managing temporary electrical systems in accordance with BS 7909 including practical steps to assessing electrical risks, especially in special locations (e.g. wet locations or those with greater risk of mechanical damage)

Generator operation and housekeeping and supply arrangements in mobile and transportable units

The course consists of written theory assessments as well as a practical one and is taught in a modular format with an open-book assessment at the end of each module. The assessments consist of a mix of short written questions/answers and multiple-choice questions. There is also a practical where candidates will demonstrate to the assessor their skills of observation of electrical inspection and also demonstrate testing of electrical systems using equipment supplied by the tutor.
