Utilities and construction specialist Develop Training Ltd (DTL) has won a contract to deliver a range of electrical training to the Bank of England.
The courses will cover high and low voltage training and the recently updated 18th Edition electrical wiring standard BS7671. DTL is also creating a bespoke programme for Authorised Person qualifications for the Bank.
The training programmes will be delivered at various locations across the UK.
James Cashley, HV Lecturer at DTL, said: “We are delighted that the Bank of England has chosen DTL for its electrical training. We look forward to working with them and helping to ensure that their employees are up to speed on all the latest regulations and trained to the highest standards. We’re also pleased to be delivering a mix of both set courses and bespoke courses designed specifically for the Bank of England’s needs.”
DTL delivers a wide range of low and high voltage training at its centres nationwide. The company launched a second dedicated HV training facility at their Derby centre earlier this year to complement its existing facility at York.
BS7671 (IET Wiring Regulations) sets the standards for electrical installation in the UK and many other countries. Earlier this month the 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations were released, with a number of substantial updates from the 17th Edition.
In response to the recently updated electrical wiring standard, DTL has announced details of two new training courses for electricians to comply with the new regulations.
DTL is running an intensive three-day course for operatives with responsibility for the design, installation or maintenance of electrical systems. The course is designed for electrically trained engineers/craftsmen to attain a benchmark qualification relating to the 18th Edition, which will become the national standard from January 1, 2019.
For electricians who have successfully attained 17th Edition certification within the past 6 months, DTL is providing a one-day refresher course.
As a result, DTL has been booked by a number of household name utility and construction companies to provide this training and ensure that their employees are fully compliant.
