A range of subjects that would be suitable for any mechanical engineer who as part of their role works on mechanical equipment that requires an element of electrical competence to undertake isolation, installation, maintenance or replacement of equipment and parts. Subjects include:

  • Isolation of electrical and mechanical plant
  • Dead and Live Testing
  • Relevant legislation and standards
  • Safe operation of protective devices
  • Replacing motors and sensors on a like-for-like basis

If this is booked and run for a single company an on-site element can be included to look at the specific equipment or plant in situ along with the necessary electrical requirements of that equipment (dependent on site location and access). There would be needed a minimum of 4 people from one company to run this course (the syllabus could also be adapted and amended to suit individual business requirements as needed). See course content/syllabus below for fuller description.

A typical engineer attending this course would have the core mechanical skills and might be working in an industrial setting and is responsible for maintaining and servicing mechanical plant, industrial engineering tools and machines, conveyor systems, building services etc

Typical candidates for the Mechanical to Electrical Conversion Course would be mechanical maintenance, fitters, engineers and/or supervisors who need to develop their electrical competences within an industrial setting and to work safely on mechanical installations with an electrical supply.

The Mechanical to Electrical Conversion Course will educate candidates in the following areas:

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


Assessment takes the form of a practical and written test at the end of each module.
