Short Course Restricted Electrical Training

Restricted Electrical Training (REL) focuses on how to disconnect and reconnect fixed wired electrical equipment connected to a low voltage supply. This may be incidental to, or a primary part of a principle work function. It includes safely testing and reporting.

Participants will learn:

  • To work safely
  • To identify supply arrangements
