This course covers a wide range of subjects required by someone wishing to increase their awareness of electrical safety or is an ideal introduction to office staff new to the role. This qualification builds awareness in a non-technical way and so is suitable for internal or external social housing staff. This VRQ award has been designed to give a good entry level understanding of some of the issues surrounding electrical safety within any organisation, including social housing. It looks at some of the different aspects of electrical safety, gives an overview of key legislation that exists, their organisation’s responsibilities, and how their own role can contribute to meeting compliance and identify potential electrical safety issues.
The qualification combines a half-day guided learning event given by AESM tutors followed by a summative assessment consisting of a multiple-choice question paper.
