James Eade has developed a new, fully updated course covering BS 7909 – the code of practice for temporary electrical systems for entertainment and related purposes.

The new course has been developed by Eade in consultation with industry experts, to ensure the most up-to-date and relevant guidance for this rapidly changing discipline.

The course is fully up to date with the new 18th edition of the Wiring Regulations (BS7671:2018) and the new IET guidance on the use of generators. It covers a broad range of areas including multiple sources of supply, RCDs, earthing and bonding, inspection and testing as well as the management of temporary electrical infrastructure.

Attendees will learn how and why the IET Wiring Regulations and BS 7909 apply to temporary events, why they are important and the best route to compliance. The content includes examples of current practice, and where this differs from best practice, as well as the common dangers that exist in a typical event environment.

Initially, BS 7909 Temporary Power for the Events Industry will be accredited by Eade, but the process of gaining accreditation by an awarding body is underway and is expected to be completed soon.
