What courses are offered?

Develop Training have for may years delivered a wide range of Electrical, LV and HV courses for Electricians, Competent Persons, Authorised Persons and Engineers with a particular emphasis on Safe Working Procedures, the role and duties of persons involved in the safety process and the documentation of safe systems. Wherever possible we use our wide range of equipment and switchgear to give hands on emphasis to both training and assessment exercises.
