NONM0894A Testing and Verification for Electricians

This is a commercial, non-accredited, practical course. There are 8 CPD points available for eligible candidates.

The course has minimal theoretical content and will increase the testing and verification capacity of candidates by practical demonstrations and hands on practical exercises.

The aim is to refresh the skills and knowledge of electricians in the following trade areas:

  • Gain familiarity with Section 8 of AS/NZS3000
  • Understand the mandatory tests required for an electrical installation
  • Practice Testing and Verification on simulated installations using real equipment and the candidate’s own tools and test instruments
  • Tips and pointers on how to efficiently and safely Test and Verify
  • Produce a comprehensive record of Testing and Verification to enable the completion of relevant sections of the CEC and to comply with Tasmanian Electrical Regulatory Requirements
  • Discuss the common causes for Defective Electrical Work Notice (DEWN previously known as an NDI) and how effective Testing and Verification can help
  • Tips and pointers for a network analyser instrument
  • Assessment is by practical completion of Testing and Verification records and identification of a number of faults on the TasTAFE Test Boards

The training product is ideal for:

  • Electrical practitioners who want to refresh their testing and verification skills
  • Electrical contracting businesses who wish to provide relevant and technical training products for their electrical employees
