This one-day, plain English course demystifies the IET guidance on electrical installation practices for healthcare establishments where medical devices with applied parts are used. The course is especially relevant to complex medical devices such as diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy rooms/suites, interventional suites and operating theatres. Medical Locations requirements also apply to all dental treatment establishments.

The course includes detailed discussion on the latest version of BS7671, the IET Special Locations guidance and HTM 06-01. Simple tests have been formulated to ensure a medical location totally complies and we have produced a medical location earth simulator panel to show the unique earth systems. The course concludes with an assessment prior to the award of the course certificate.
