Order number 234971 | Fundamental

This training course is certified by two acknowledged test organisations:

Equivalent to 14 hours of CPD

City & Guilds Assured

On successful completion of the course delegates will receive both a City & Guilds paper certificate and a City & Guilds Assured Digital Credential - a City & Guilds Assured Digital Credential is essentially a digital certificate, but unlike a paper certificate digital credentials are easily shareable, verifiable and trackable all in one click.

Delegates will also receive 14 hours of CPD points. Continuing Professional Development - usually abbreviated to CPD - is the intentional maintenance and development of the knowledge and skills needed to perform in a professional context. CPD hours (or points) are a way of measuring time and quality of learning. Points can be collected in a personal portfolio allowing participants to track their professional development and progression. CPD-accredited training can assist participants in honing their current skills, developing them to a new level or it could mean learning entirely new ones.

Completion of this course shows the delegate has gained knowledge of technical safety in industry including protection methods, safety components, design and validation of control systems.
