Temporary Electrical opportunity to installers

NAPIT offer Temporary Electrical opportunity to installers

NAPIT have launched a new registration scheme and a City & Guilds Accredited training programme for Temporary Electrical Systems.

Temporary Installation work is wide-ranging and covers public and private events, theatrical and touring shows, radio, television, film productions and similar activities in the entertainment industry.

The new registration scheme introduced by NAPIT will allow installers to demonstrate their competence to carry out temporary electrical installation work to the British Standard 7909 and highlight their capabilities to potential clients by listing on an online search that will help them be found for work opportunities.

There are two versions of the training programme available:

1. Temporary Electrical Systems for Practicing Operatives NA7909-(1) which is designed for candidates who are proficient with industry working methods and practices associated with BS 7909 and will have satisfactory recognised prior learning by holding evidence of a Creative Skillset Certificate in Temporary Electrical Systems.

2. Temporary Electrical Systems NA7909-(3) for new candidates who have extensive industry experience with little or no formal electrical qualifications.

The programme will be available and delivered through Premier Training Academy centres and other locations throughout the UK upon request. The programmes were designed in partnership with James Eade, a consultant Chartered Engineer with more than 25 years’ experience in the industry and the author of the IET’s guide to Temporary Power Systems. The training programme provides a comprehensive overview of all the requirements and legislation relating to BS 7909 over ten modules.

On successful completion of the course, candidates will receive a City & Guilds accredited certificate and will be able to work competently on temporary electrical power systems.

Mike Andrews, NAPIT Group Chief Executive said "This new opportunity provided by NAPIT gives installers the chance to explore a different area of the industry, advance their skills and ultimately, grow their business. We are also working with the industry and some of its representative organisations to promote the scheme and to encourage making it a contractual requirement as the scheme develops. Further enhancing NAPIT’s commitment to improve standards and safety into this area of industry".
