Description

Course description
Are you an experienced electrician working with temporary power or a lighting technician working in broadcasting, film, theatre or events? If so this course is essential for you.

The NAPIT NA7909-(3) accredited by City & Guilds is a training programme that replaces the old Skillset Certificate in Temporary Electrical Systems (SCiTES). The course has been created for all of those working with temporary power, particularly (but not exclusively) in the broadcast/film, theatre, festivals, shows and exhibition industries.

Background
This course builds on the old Creative Skillset Certificate in Temporary Systems course which was developed following a request from a safety group comprising of the major broadcasters, BECTU, PACT, freelance electricians and lighting suppliers. It remains the only industry recognised accreditation. It is three days long and candidates learn what is required to manage temporary electrical systems safely.

The course is fully up to date with the 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations (BS 7671:2018) as well as new IET guidance on the use of generators.

Who should attend?
Because of the varied backgrounds of many technicians working with temporary power, there are no pre-qualification requirements for candidates wishing to do the course. However, anyone considering participating will be expected to understand the technical content in this course, therefore you will need to be comfortable with basic electrical theory such as using Ohms Law and working out power loading. It does NOT teach basic electrical theory.

The course should be considered as continuing professional development for those already working in the industry and is NOT an electrical qualification in its own right.

It is aimed at existing practitioners or those newly electrically qualified by allied routes (such as 17th edition qualifications or electrical NVQ's), and will enable candidates to demonstrate an understanding of what is required to practice safely with temporary electrical systems using the recognised Standards BS 7671 and BS 7909.

If you would like more information there is a full briefing document available for download here

There are two courses available:

THIS COURSE: Three-day City & Guilds Accredited NAPIT Temporary Electrical Systems - NA7909-(3): The first two days comprise class-based training with 11 short assessment papers over the two days. The third day is more practical and includes a written assessment of inspection skills and a practical testing assignment using equipment supplied by the Tutor. All three days run from 9:30 to 17:30.

Alternatively, there is a single day City & Guilds Accredited NAPIT Temporary Electrical Systems - NA7909-(1): If you have already completed the Creative Skillset course and hold a copy of your certificate, you only need do this practical one-day assessment as the existing Skillset certificate counts as accredited prior learning.

The course was written and developed by the UK expert on temporary power, James Eade. The courses are delivered by James or his colleagues, all who have extensive experience of working in the industry in sectors including TV, film, live events and theatre.
