Description

Course description (please read carefully - new info)

The new City & Guilds NA7909(3) is an accredited 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.

THIS COURSE is the single day City & Guilds Accredited Temporary Electrical Systems - NA7909-(1): IT IS ONLY FOR THOSE who have already completed the Creative Skillset course and hold a copy of their certificate. It is a practical one-day assessment as the existing Skillset certificate counts as accredited prior learning.

In respect of the course content, the day consists of a taught refresher on the testing and inspection elements of the original Creative Skillset Certificate, followed by a written assessment for inspections of temporary systems. The second part of the day comprises a practical where candidates demonstrate their ability to perform a safe isolation and also to test circuits and verify that satisfactory protective measures are in place.

Background

This earlier Skillset certificate has been incredibly successful and key feedback was that it should include a practical element. This has been taken on board and it now comprises a third day of practical testing and inspection assessment. The existing course plus this new third day has been recognised by City &Guilds and is now available as an accredited training program.

The original SCiTES certificate was developed following a request from a safety group comprising of the major broadcasters, BECTU, PACT, freelance electricians and lighting suppliers, and was the only industry recognised accreditation. To date there are no other training courses of this type that have such industry agreement and following feedback from candidates it’s been decided to add the third practical day, enabling it to be accredited by C&G.

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.

The original certificate has already been run around the UK and to date over 1300 people have undergone the training. Feedback has been excellent; so far 99% of candidates enjoyed it and would recommend it to their colleagues.

There are now two courses available:

THIS COURSE single day City & Guilds Accredited 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.

If you haven’t previously completed the Skillset Certificate you will need to do the three-day City & Guilds Accredited Temporary Electrical Systems - NA7909-(3). The first two days comprise class-based training with 11 short assessment papers over the two days (the same as the old Creative Skillset certificate). 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.
