This course is designed to refresh the testing skills and provide a clear understanding and methodology for testing of the 6 mandatory tests required under AS/NZS 3000: 2007 which includes IR testing of electronic equipment in electrical installations, Residual Current Devices and Fault Loop Impedance. The course also covers Voltage Drop, Faults on the MEN system and Fault Current.

It involves both a theory and practical component. The testing course forms part of the three day Construction Wiring course, however, can still be undertaken as a one day course.

The course covers, but not limited to:

  • Understanding the standards and regulations
  • Why test for correct circuit connections, Earth Fault Loop Impedance and RCD’s
  • Earth continuity choices, testing main earth using trailing lead
  • Testing protective earths and bonds using trailing lead
  • Earth conductor values and equipotential bonding of water and pipes
  • Testing options, and why to test
  • Mandatory tests
  • Why test earth continuity
  • Why test insulation resistance and polarity Fault
  • loop examples and testing insulation resistance
  • Testing mains polarity using fixed resistors
  • Testing metered mains polarity using fixed resistors
  • Testing main switch/circuit breaker operation/interconnections
  • Testing socket outlet polarity/earthing/switching/legend/interconnections
  • Testing earthed or bonded items from a socket outlet and testing circuit neutral interconnections
  • Finalise dead testing and live testing
  • Using fixed resistors
  • Checking voltage drop, Fault current ratings, RCD’s.

There is an assessment in which a pass rate of 80% or higher is requried, otherwise you will be required to undertake the course again.

Electrician’s Licence or Electrical (supervised) worker’s licence.

You will need to show your licence on the day otherwise your Certificate of Attendance will not be issued.
