Home Parks Electrical

Electrical Training For Parks

Under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, all employers have a duty to ensure that employees are competent to carry out any electrical duties expected of them. The National Caravan Council has defined the competences necessary for electrical inspection of caravan holiday homes and park homes when they are connected. A training course with assessment has been developed to provide the necessary proof of the competence of park maintenance staff.

This course is designed to ensure that park workers are safe when carrying out their day-to-day duties, that all legal requirements are met, and that they can sign off a specified range of electrical work that will fall within their usual duties.

The CITO Electrical Inspection & Test Certificate is recognised by the British Holiday & Home Parks Association and the National Caravan Council as a limited competence qualification for a specified range of inspection & testing tasks in the caravan parks industry. Now, park staff don't necessarily need to have the 17th edition qualification in order to carry out these tasks. You will be able to complete and issue a full Electrical Commissioning Report for an Electrical Installation for all your second-hand or used caravan holiday homes.

What the course will provide

On completion of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a knowledge of relevant health & safety legislation, and of electrical terms and relationships
  • Create and maintain a safe system of work
  • Understand protection against electric shock and burns
  • Determine circuit protection, isolation and dead
  • Define earthing and bonding
  • Use hand tools safely
  • Carry out commissioning inspection and testing procedures safely and accurately on caravan holiday homes and park homes.
  • Know and understand own level of competence and when to seek assistance.
  • Complete a full Electrical Commissioning Report for an Electrcial Installation
  • Successful completion of the course and assessment will provide a Certificate of Competence. 
  • The complete syllabus is available to view in the Information Pack at the bottom of this page.

It will be possible to use this Certificate of Competence as evidence of prior learning towards the NVQ Level 2 in Operational Services (Caravan Parks).

This course is not suitable for complete beginners. All delegates should have a basic understanding of electrical terminology before applying for this course.

This course will run on two consecutive days. Each course will take a maximum of 10 people. The cost includes training, assessment, course materials, certification, and a light buffet lunch on both days. Accommodation if required is not included.
