Electrical Training

Training for Engineers

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 (NCC) has defined the competences necessary for electrical inspection of caravan holiday homes and park homes when they are connected.

Park operatives don’t necessarily need to have the 17th edition electrical qualification in order to complete and issue a full commissioning certificate. This two day course is designed to ensure that park operatives are safe when carrying out their day-to-day duties, that all legal requirements are met, and that they can sign off an Electrical Commissioning Report for an Electrical Installation on your used and second-hand holiday units.


+/- What the course covers

The two day course takes place on-site at a caravan park and involves classroom practical exercises and assessments on actual static caravans. The learner will cover all relevant aspects of electrical safety, test and inspection, including the following:

  • Electrical safety and regulations
  • Protection from electric shock, fire and burns, and the maintenance of safe systems of work
  • Determine circuit protection and understand what to earth and what to bond
  • Inspection, testing and commissioning procedures on caravan holiday and park homes
  • The use of electrical testing equipment
  • Completing appropriate documentation and issuing of a full Electrical Commissioning Report for an Electrical Installation

+/- What the course will provide

Upon successful completion of the course the service technician will receive a City & Guilds certificate in the Electrical Test and Inspection of Holiday and Residential Park Homes.

This qualification is a lifetime award and allows the technician to demonstrate that he/she has the necessary skills to work with electrical equipment. However, legislation governing electrical work is continually evolving, it is therefore recommended that the operative update his/her qualification on a regular basis (at least every five years) in order to keep up to date and to demonstrate awareness and understanding of the regulations as they develop.

It is possible to use this qualification as evidence of prior learning towards the NVQ Level 2 in Operational Services (Caravan Parks).
