CPD Credit: 7 hours, C1 / C2
This full day course covers the 20 Special Installations or Locations described in Chapter 7 which accounts for 25% of the overall standard. It is aimed at engineers and contractors involved in the design of electrical installations. It is intended as a follow-on course to WR1.
The special installations or locations in Chapter 7 involve increased risks compared with those covered in Chapters 4 &5. The requirements of Chapter 7 are intended to “supplement, modify or replace” the requirements of Chapters 1-6. The course is presented using simplified diagrams and tables to explain the requirements of Chapter 7.
