The Mechanical to Electrical Part 1 (4-day course) introduces technicians, with no previous electrical background, to high frequency, low risk, first-line electrical maintenance tasks including safe isolation, replacement and testing of a range of common electrical devices (motors, sensors, contactors, overloads, etc.) in a safe and effective manner.
Most importantly, the format of the course is specifically designed so that, when combined with suitable on-site consolidation of training, it will assist the maintenance manager in meeting the legal requirements for employee competence in electrical work. MCP’s mechanical to electrical conversion training is a City and Guilds accredited course.
We have designed this 16-day programme (Parts 1, 2, 3 & 4) to provide the fundamental skills and knowledge required to enable technicians to perform electrical maintenance tasks in the workplace today.
