At the recent meeting in the NSAI building the delegates from the AECI and many other Bodies in the Electrical Industry, i.e. ECA, NECI, ECSSA, RECI, ACEI etc. met to discuss
a) The implications of the planned training course
b) The content of the training course
c) The cost and duration of the training course and
d) Which Body should carry out the training course.
The stance taken by the AECI was that this training course in its present form was above and beyond the technical knowledge required to commission Emergency Lighting Systems and our feelings on this matter was strongly articulated.
This training course should now be suspended indefinitely and the NSAI should revert back to the I.S. 3217 Standards Committee with the many views put forward by the AECI and others.
We will keep you informed as this matter comes to a conclusion.
