You are welcome to bring your own food to eat in our centre. Alternatively, we sell a small selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks in our canteen, or you could purchase food from one of the local supermarkets/shops/cafes/restaurants within just a few minutes’ walk.

Most students also find it beneficial to bring Post-it notes or sticky tags, which they can use to separate their books into sections. Additionally, a pen and a non-programmable calculator are permitted for the exam.

This program is specifically designed for electricians already engaged in the field who have successfully completed relevant formal training and possess experience in inspection and testing. Additionally, candidates should have knowledge and practical experience in three-phase testing.

We offer a two-day Advanced Inspection & Testing course for individuals with no three-phase experience.
