Event Electrical Training Courses


One-Day Workshop 


Our Event Electrics course is specifically aimed at those working in the Marquee or Events industry, and those who install these systems but have no formal electrical qualification. 


We cover all aspects of design, installation and testing of temporary electrical systems for specifically aimed at events.   


Our experts guide candidates through the best practises in installing electrical and lighting systems in temporary structures for events. Including tips on how to avoid some common, and some not so obvious, pitfalls.  


There will also be plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with some of our latest products specifically designed for this industry. 


We keep the class sizes down, we’ve found between 4 and 8 people to be enough to get the best results and making sure you have that individual attention. 


We’re an informal bunch that's reflected in our courses, we prefer a relaxed style allowing for questions, the knowledge of the group and what individuals want to get out of the course to dictate the direction of the day.
