UEENEEP012A

Course Description

This unit covers locating and rectifying fault(s) in composite appliances intended to operate to a connected supply up to 1,000 volts a.c. or 1,500 volts d.c. This may be incidental to or a primary and regular function in the workplace. It encompasses following prescribed procedures, working safely, reading circuit diagrams, isolation procedures, identifying faults according to procedures, identifying like for like replacement/repair components according to procedures, selecting and using testing and measuring devices, terminating and connecting cables and conductors, safety testing and reporting.
Note: Limitations of this unit.
This unit does not cover installations:
a) Where high fault currents are possible,
b) Comprised of complex electrical apparatus and circuits,
c) Associated with fixed wiring other than disconnecting and reconnecting electrical equipment, circuits at a switchboard or to general electrical accessories (including switches, socket outlets, circuit protective devices etc); or installation of or alteration to any part of the fixed electrical wiring system (defined as electrical installing work).listed in the Range Statement of the unit,
d) In hazardous areas or on electrical equipment that is part of an explosion protection technique.
