The MPBA Learning Hub, with input from member’s and the ECA, have redeveloped the electrical qualifications to offer a more flexible solution for member companies.
The qualifications are primarily aimed at those individuals requiring registration under the MPBA Electrical Card Scheme only. Basic Health & Safety training is required for the qualifications, along with an understanding of basic hand tools and access equipment.
Anyone without existing knowledge, as detailed above, must undertake the training addressing those requirements before attempting this qualification.
The aims of the qualifications are to:
- meet the needs of MPBA registration and those individuals who work for MPBA member companies.
- ensure the individual has sufficient knowledge to complete the safe inspection and maintenance of electrical installations in modular and portable buildings.
- ensure the individual has sufficient knowledge to undertake in-service electrical repairs, modification, and maintenance.
- provide CSCS recognition for individuals working on sites to carry out Electrical Works (Level Two).
Each course covers different aspects of working on electrical systems in relation to modular and portable buildings. Qualified learners are deemed as having sufficient skills and knowledge to undertake different aspects of work depending on the course and assessment undertaken.
The availability of courses and use of the agreed working approach with the Electrical Card Scheme is only available for employees of MPBA member companies.
