The third cohort of Hawkins investigators has successfully completed our practical electrical training course, which is accredited with the Chartered Society of Forensic Science.
The course, part of a programme of advanced electrical training currently being rolled out at Hawkins, provides practical reinforcement for the City & Guilds 2382-10 course which our investigators had already completed. The City & Guilds course enables a detailed understanding of the contents of BS7671 the 17th edition of the UK Wiring Regulations.
Colleagues from our offices in Hong Kong, Reigate and Glasgow attended the two-day practical course. The course includes the typical inspection, testing and certification undertaken by electrical contractors at the completion of a new electrical installation and the type of inspection and testing undertaken periodically during the life of the electrical system. The course also demonstrates the effects of a lost-neutral, a situation where voltages vary which can lead to electrical damage and/or a fire.
