From mechanical to multi-skilled!

 Mar, 09 - 2015   Electrical

Are you a mechanical engineer looking to develop your electrical skills? We have introduced a Mechanical to Electrical Conversion Course, which will enable technicians to achieve a multi-skilled status and become competent in specific electrical tasks, such as isolation and termination of a range of cables.


Typical course attendees would be an engineer with the core mechanical skills, looking to develop electrical maintenance competences; most probably within an industrial setting.  Split into two modules, the course covers the following:


Module one

  • Health and Safety including relevant parts of Electricity at Work Regulations and BS7671
  • Emergency Isolation, Isolation up to 400 volts Three Phase
  • Supply Systems, Single and Three Phase, reduced and Extra Low Voltage
  • Protective Devices, Fuses, MCB’s, RCD’s and Overloads
  • Cable Systems and Terminations
  • Earthing and Bonding
  • Reading and understanding electrical drawings and diagrams


Module two

  • Test and connect Three Phase motors D.O.L
  • Replace and Setting Motor Overloads
  • Introduction and principles of Inverters
  • Use of Instruments to Measure Continuity and Insulation Resistance
  • Simply Relay Control Circuits
  • Control Devices including Limit Switches and Proximity Devices
  • Fault Finding on Single and Three Phase Systems


The week-long course is available at all three of our training centre in Northolt, Basildon and Luton. Following each module is a practical and written assessment.
