The Mechanical to Electrical – Part 1, 4-day programme is designed for technicians who have no previous electrical background, to enable them to perform high frequency, low risk, first-line electrical maintenance tasks including safe isolation, replacement and testing of a range of common electrical devices in a safe and effective manner.
Mechanical to Electrical – Part 2 is aimed at technicians who have completed Part 1 of the mechanical to electrical programme, or have some basic understanding of electrical systems. This City and Guilds accredited 16-day programme is offered across 4 parts, each part consisting of a 4-day programme.
The Mechanical to Electrical – Part 3 programme builds confidence in fault finding and fixing within a wide range of electrical systems. Technicians will build on their electrical knowledge gained in previous modules so they can understand how to read drawings, successfully find faults and how to test and connect control devices.
Following some on-job coaching and assessment, the delegate is able to carry out basic electrical tasks without the need to wait for an electrical colleague to help him/her out. This course is for technicians who completed Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the Mechanical to Electrical programme.
The course has been developed around the IET (Institute of Engineering Technology) standards and statutory regulations along with the City & Guilds requirements for maintenance electricians. This course was previously known as City & Guilds 2394/5.
To provide technicians with the confidence and ability to identify and fix common faults, reducing downtime. On completion of this course, delegates will quickly identify the root cause of a fault, using recognised methodologies that provide a logical thought process to common equipment failures.
The BS 7671 Wiring Regulations – 18th Edition course ensures you are up-to-date with the latest industry regulations on of electrical equipment and systems. This course is entirely theory based and is completed by way of an online multiple choice open book exam.
A recent report commissioned by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), indicates that the social benefit of EVs, connected and autonomous vehicles are likely to bring about 320,000 newly-created industry jobs. And, of course, these jobs will require an expanded skill set from existing automotive engineers.
With electric vehicle sales predicted to reach 45 million worldwide by 2040, the next twenty years are set to dramatically change the automotive market. This qualification is designed for those people who may encounter accident damaged or broken down electric/hybrid vehicles, i.e. emergency services and roadside recovery operators.
The Electrical Upskilling for Automotive Technicians 8-day programme was designed for staff who have no previous electric vehicle background, to enable them to perform electrical maintenance tasks including safe isolation, replacement and testing of a range of common electrical devices in a safe and effective manner.
