NAPIT has hosted three CPD seminars in Northern Ireland, covering the latest changes to the Regulations including Amendment 1 to BS 7671 Electrical Vehicle Charging, Surge Protection and Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) coding.
Frank Bertie, NAPIT chief technical officer along with other NAPIT technical experts, Paul Chaffers and Richard Townsend, provided the free CPD sessions.
The events were split into two sessions; one for electricians and electrical contractors, and a second one aimed more for Local Authorities and the education, health, water and transport sectors.
Garo and Megger supported the events and provided visitors with advice and demonstrations of their products. Garo showcased its range of electric vehicle charging points and Megger demonstrated its latest test equipment.
Mike Andrews, NAPIT chief executive officer, said, “I’m really pleased with the reception we received at our technical seminars in Northern Ireland. There were engaging conversations and participation from visitors, and it was great to provide technical content which promotes electrical competence to support contractors within the UK. These events form part of our objectives of raising standards and promoting technical excellence within the electrical industry”.
