Why take the Identifying Electrical Hazards in the Home - Online Course (eLearning)?

Course Snapshot 

By law, a periodic inspection of the electrical installations in rental properties in England must be carried out every five years. When a change of tenancy occurs, the landlord or their representative should always carry out a visual check to confirm that a property is safe to re-let Source: Electrical Safety First

This online course is intended to enable anyone to identify basic electrical hazards in a home. This does not replace the need for a full electrical inspection however, whilst you are visiting the property there are things you can do to ensure the tenant remains safe whilst in their home. You could also give them some useful advice on how to use the installation safely and efficiently.

During this course you will complete a short (20-30 minute) eLearning module which includes a walkaround of a property to help you identify potential electrical hazards and includes advice you could give to tenants to ensure the safe and effective use of the installation.
We will also consider ways in which you could report any potential hazards.

There will be a short quiz at the end to test your knowledge and then you can download your certificate of attendance upon completion.
