The AECI have been pushing for information regarding the alternative Emergency Lighting Training Course.

The BESS Scheme was the brain child of the NSAI however this initial course was accepted by most Electrical Contractors as “over the top” and too expensive, for what was required.

An alternative scheme was suggested to allow Electrical Contractors to commission Emergency Lights and have a Certificate of Competence, however, almost a year ago today a Committee was formed to create this alternative course but to date it still does not exist.

The AECI contacted the NSAI (see attached response) and also RECI with a meeting planned in the next few days to discuss.

 

The Response

Dear Chris

 

As you are aware, NSAI withdrew from the training of Emergency lighting nearly a year ago today.  I am not aware of what training is now taking place.  I suggest you contact Ger Buckley or Derek Waters who may be able to help.
