Electrical Safety is delivered online as an interactive course to each trainee on their computers, or portable device at any internet enabled location. The interactive course is engaging, informative and exciting to use. Using up-to-date,
modern graphical images, users will be faced with a selection of interactive elements and mini quizzes to test their knowledge.

Users will receive informative advice and guidance and will be tested on their understanding of the subject at the end of the course by completing the compulsory self-test.
