Electrical Inspector Theory Course

Electrical Inspector Theory Course

Are you tired of crawling through roofs under floors and playing in trenches? Time for a change, why not become a Licenced Electrical Inspector.

Our Theory training course is step 1 in your journey to becoming a licensed electrical inspector. Becoming a Licensed Electrical Inspector gives you the opportunity to put down the heavy tools and pick up the testers and books. Think of this as the third and final step of your new career.

Due to the added complexity of the assessment requirements to gain a licence as a “G” Class Licensed electrical Inspector, Triple Trade Training now offers each separate component of the assessment as a standalone course.

You now have the ability to select all three or only one of the courses, however Triple Trade training recommends the order of the courses to be, Theory followed by the G practical and finally the safe to approach.

Triple Trade training prides itself in providing you with the knowledge, limited experience on simulated test boards and specific information in electrical inspection, particularly testing of electrical installations. Our training courses go further than providing only sufficient training just to pass the licencing assessment. Our training packages are designed and deliver sufficient underpinning knowledge to become a valued Licenced Electrical Inspector.

Triple Trade training will provide guidance for candidates attempting the assessment for ‘G’ Class Licence in all three license assessments, “Theory, Practical and Safe to Approach” as defined in the Electrical Safety (General) Regulations. It also provides guidance and reference material for Licensed Electrical Inspectors once they become a licenced inspector.

Triple Trade Training provides resource material that sets out methods of inspecting and testing that have been commonly used over many years by Inspectors for verifying that the requirements of the Act, Regulations, Wiring Rules and the Service and Installation Rules have been met.

In providing this information Triple Trade Training intention is to provide industry best practice processes and procedures on methods of testing along with sufficient underpinning information for the candidate to understand the rationale/reasons behind such tests and methodology.
