Events & Training Courses

Success in business relies on providing quality work and great customer service. It means keeping up with technology, compliance, and providing the right advice and product to your customers. To do that, you need skilled staff who are full of knowledge, relate to your customers and understand business priorities.  That means they need quality training.

A skilled, trained workforce can dramatically improve bottom line performance, adding value to products and services and making it easier to compete in the market. Satisfied and motivated staff, mean higher levels of staff retention, lowering the costs of recruitment.

The Health & Safety at Work Act 2015 states that one aspect of ensuring that employees can carry out work safely is making sure that employees have adequate knowledge, experience and training.

    Electrical Testing Course ( AS/NZS 3760:2010)
     

    Our portable appliance safety course has been specially developed for industries in the hire, construction and service market sectors. The course philosophy is to enable companies to make sensible and cost effective compliance choices around the portable equipment safety.

    Having your own staff capable of portable electrical appliance testing makes good business sense. This in-house competency ensures greater control over:

    • Plant availability.
    • Employee and contractor safety
    • Compliance costs

    This course gives you or your staff the training to undertake this work. The training package is designed to meet the general requirements for competency as defined in the AS/NZS 3760:2010 Standard. The course covers more than these basic requirements; participants are taken through a visual and hands-on learning experience to develop the skills necessary to assess and test portable electrical equipment for operational safety.

    With Worksafe NZ prescribing for the greater use of Residual Current Devices (RCD’s) our course covers the use, operation and proper testing of these devices.

    A detailed course support book is provided to help participants with understanding of the testing processes and as a resource post course.

    We look forward to having you join us on this course.


    Cost - $295.00 plus GST per person.


    We reserve right to cancel course should minimum numbers not be met.
