Electrical Services Courses

High quality electrical building services are essential for the modern world to operate. To help you meet that demand, CIBSE Training have the perfect suite of courses to introduce you to, or refresh and develop your existing knowledge in, electrical services. 
 

Electrical Services Explained - 3 Days

Days: 3
CPD hours: 21

This three day course will give you a grounding in electrical services and equipment and a better appreciation of many of the issues associated with the design, installation and maintenance of electrical systems. Delegates will develop their own engineering judgement and confidence when dealing with electrical issues. 


 

Electrical Distribution Design

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

This course focuses on design techniques and simple to use spreadsheets for systems design encompassing UPS, LV switchgear, transformer / generator change-over control, air circuit breakers, watchdog circuitry and new technology. 


 

IET Wiring Regulations (18th Edition)  

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

This course offers a "guided tour" of BS 76712:2008 incorporating amendment no. 1 2011 and provides information on the background, the history and some of the theoretical concepts behind the standard. The course deals with each part of the regulations section by section, describing key of interest, importance or debate. 


 

High Voltage (11kV) Distribution and Protection 

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

Overview of design and application of 11kV (high voltage) electrical systems including switchgear transformers, distribution systems, protection and discrimination, legislation and health and safety issues.


 

Emergency Lighting to Comply with Fire Safety

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

The course covers use of current standards to demonstrate compliance with fire safety legislation. It describes design techniques, installation procedures and testing requirements. Details are given of the guidance now provided in BS 5266-10, to assist engineers to produce appropriate systems that can demonstrate compliance with the Fire Safety Order covering emergency lighting, not only for evacuation but to safeguard occupants who have to perform safety related duties in a lighting supply failure.

 

Earthing and Bonding Systems  

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

Vital for the safety and correct function of all information technology equipment. This course offers a practical explanation of earthing and bonding systems illustrated with example.



 

Power System Harmonics

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

Modern complex electrical loads like electronic motor control, rectifier plants, IT equipment etc, produce considerable harmonics with probable consequential system damage. This course details the causes, effects and mitigation.



 

Standby Diesel Generator 

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7


This course details the design techniques for the selection and sizing diesel generators for low voltage distribution systems including fault level analysis, selection of alternators / governors, selection of circuit breakers etc.



 

Practical Approach to LV Fault Level Analysis 

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

Basic concepts; trend in higher fault levels; calculation methods; generator decrement curves; sizing equipment for fault levels; European fault classification; required fault levels. 



 

Essentials of Electrical Systems and Safety Awareness 

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

This one-day course covers a wide range of areas associated with electrical systems, which will enable you to gain a better understanding of the operational and safety aspects of electrical systems and, improve your confidence when dealing with electrical engineers/contractors.
