This short course enables people to be trained in the inspection and testing of single phase electrical appliances as well as single and 3-phase extension cords. Equipment found to be in safe working order is then tagged to comply with current Australian Standards. This enables employers to meet duty of care obligations under current state legislation.

This course does not include testing of RCDs or the repair of appliances.
