Course content

• statutory requirements (Electrical Contractors Nominees/In-house Licence) 
• legislation and process (Electrical Contractors Nominees/In-house Licence) 
• inspection and testing of electrical installation work (Electrical Contractors Nominees/In-house Licence) 
• business task management and monitoring business operations (Electrical Contractors Licence)*

* Please note: If you are not working within an electrical contracting company, a person other than an electrical contractor may hold the business aspect of the licence.
