This Low Voltage Authorised Person Course has been developed specifically for those currently working in a healthcare setting or looking to join a company in the NHS / healthcare sector. It is designed to enable competent electrical staff within an organisation to work safely in accordance with HSG 85 – Safe Working Practices (Electricity at Work) when planning to carry out maintenance and repairs on a low-voltage electrical system. 

This open course covers all the key principles and procedures to ensure you can do this safely and competently, as well as ensuring compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and other associated legal and guidance documents. Please note we are able to customise this course for companies who already have specific procedures and organisational structures in place.

We also offer a more general commercial version of this course.
