Course description

Electrical Commissioning and Testing

Electrical Commissioning and Testing - Online Course - CIBSE

This module recognises that there is a need to integrate this testing with the commissioning of other electrical services. So the module also looks at the basics of commissioning of the following items as an aid to understanding the commissioning processes involved (by others, usually the manufacturer or a specialist contractor), rather than an in-depth knowledge of the subject:

  • Fire alarms
  • Lighting systems, including emergency lighting
  • Structured cabling, including fibre optic cable
  • Lift installations
  • Lightning protection 
  • Transformers
  • High-voltage and low-voltage switchgear
  • Generators
  • Uninterruptable power supplies

Having studied the module, users should be able to:

  • Understand the testing requirements of BS 7671, and how all the above tests are carried out
  • Enable the user to prepare a full specification prior to the commencement or alteration of any electrical installation
  • Understand both the need and precisely what detailed design information is required for a competent person to test and commission and installation
  • Assist in the provision of commissioning procedures
  • Assist in the preparation or specifying the needs of operational manuals and maintenance schedules, ‘as fitted’ drawings etc.
