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& Guilds Accreditation Certificate, 16-day programme is offered across 4 parts, each part consisting of a 4-day programme. This is specifically structured to aid technicians progression and allows for suitable on-site consolidation of training prior to delivery of the next part.

Is it right for me?

Mechanical to Electrical – Part 2 is built on the knowledge gained in Part 1. Technicians will broaden their knowledge base and successfully be able to complete a wider range of tasks involving electrical systems, including termination of cables, resetting overloads, changing fuses, isolation, change of motor (like for like) and change of direction of motor.

What will I learn?

  • Health and Safety
  • Isolation procedure
  • Relevant parts of BS7671 IET Wiring Regulations and Electricity at Work Regulations

  • Methods of protection including motor overload units
  • Direct online and star delta starters
  • Motor control using soft starters and inverters
  • Remote control stop/start stations
  • Circuit wiring and block diagrams
  • Motors: replace single and three phase motors like-for-like
  • Change of direction
  • Fault finding
  • Measurement of voltage, insulation resistance and continuity
  • Theory to support the practical activities listed above

Following completion of this course, we recommend skills learnt are practised in the workplace until a proficient standard is achieved. Candidates can then be signed-off as competent to carry out the prescribed tasks.
