    This is a recording of a webinar given on the 7th April 2020.  I strongly recommend you find the time to watch this on YouTube https://youtu.be/jm9AY_bt4Uk

    Phil puts his old firefighters hat on and discusses with us the introduction of the regulations regarding the measures to prevent premature collapse of wiring systems.  

    We'll discuss the history which caused the regulation, the current applications and what its actually like to be in an installation with premature collapsed cabling.

    We get a lot of inquiries with regards to the 2396 design qualification and many people are failing the exam when they've gone to other training providers. 

    So Phil and I wanted to discuss the qualification and go through the chief examiners reports to see what the common problems are.

    This is the audio recording from a webinar hosted last week where Phil Watts and I discuss the inspection and testing process, and the tests that are either not carried out and reported effectively or are just outright missing from the inspection and testing training and reporting, including the model forms in BS 7671.

glossop electrician ,

testing beyond

Just listened to the testing beyond 7671. A perfectly explained example of something i’ve pondered over for years. Its listening to things like this that keep you on your toes, especially from a self employed sparks aspect. Thanks

Cd8888888 ,

Brilliant informative podcast for Electrican’s!

Iv been waiting for a podcast like this for a while. I have seen some of sparky ninja’s content on YouTube which is great. This podcast does well to provide so more information on top of that as well as providing it in a different format to YouTube (one in which I can listen while at work).

A recommendation would be to have a longer form podcast which goes into further dept in the subject matters. And cover some (grey area) best pratice subject. This is only my personal option and what I would like to hear more of and not a criticism as the podcast does very well at what it means to!

Keep up the great work in striving to improve the electrical sector as a whole, though new informative avenues! It is very much appreciated!
