NAPIT Training Deliver Temporary Electrical Systems Training Overseas in Dubai

NAPIT’s City & Guilds Accredited Temporary Electrical Systems Programme (NA 7909) was taken overseas to Dubai to train and qualify staff from audio-visual and technical event production company the Eclipse Group.

James Eade, a consultant Charted Engineer, works alongside NAPIT to design and deliver the programme and was invited to Dubai to train more than 20 candidates at the Eclipse Headquarters. The Eclipse Group ensure that their crew are up-to-date with current practices and are aware of UK legislation. This ensures that all tours and productions heading for the United Arab Emirates follow the best technical and safety standards.

James represents several trade associations and is the author of the IET Guide to Temporary Power Systems, he said "It was great to be able to promote UK standards and best practice abroad with the Temporary Electrical Systems Programme – it demonstrates that we are ahead of the game when it comes to temporary electrical system safety. It was good to work with Eclipse as they are keen to uphold good standards and working practices."

Head of NAPIT Training Michael Collinge said "This programme is ideal for those who want to update their skills and ensure their practices are compliant. With the help of James’ knowledge and connections within the industry, our mission is to reach and train more people to ensure that the events and entertainment industry’s electrical safety is of the highest standard across the board."

Electrical safety within the events and entertainment industry is high on the agenda in the UK. Ensuring that it is managed effectively due to the short timescales of most events, it is crucial that there is a good understanding of distribution and protection.
