Advanced Diploma in Electrical Systems


Course details

This course is intended for learners who wish to embark on a career as technicians in electrical power systems, for both domestic and industrial sectors. The course has been designed to include requirements as set by the Regulator for Energy & Water Services (REWS) for Electrical Wireman’s Authorisation A and Authorisation B. This provides candidates with a solid technical competence and understanding of the regulations and health and safety requirements governing the electrical installation industry.
This course also contains modules related to Photovoltaic systems, Building Services Engineering and Electronic Control Systems that give candidates a solid grounding in the engineering involved in the building services industry.
Candidates will also receive exposure to Mechanical Workshop Practice for a more holistic training programme. Apart from preparing students to become fully fledged technicians, the course design also prepares graduands for further studies at degree level should they so desire.
Dan il-kors huwa maħsub għall-istudenti li jixtiequ jibdew karriera bħala teknixins f’sistemi tal-enerġija elettrika, għas-setturi kemm domestiċi kif ukoll industrijali. Il-kors ġie mfassal biex jinkludi rekwiżiti, kif stabbiliti mir-Regolatur tas-Servizzi tal-Enerġija u l-Ilma (REWS), għall-Awtorizzazzjoni A u l-Awtorizzazzjoni B ta’ Persuni li Jgħaddu l-Wajers tal-Elettriku. Dan jipprovdi lill-kandidati kompetenza teknika soda u fehim tar-regolamenti u tar-rekwiżiti tas-saħħa u s-sikurezza li jirregolaw l-industrija tal-installazzjoni tal-elettriku.
Dan il-kors jinkludu wkoll unitajiet relatati ma’ Sistemi Fotovoltajċi, Sistemi tal-Inġinerija tas-Servizzi tal-Bini u tal-Kontroll Elettroniku, li jipprovdu lill-istudenti bażi soda għall-inġinerija involuta fl-industrija tas-servizzi tal-bini.
Il-kandidati jwettqu wkoll Prattika f’Workshop Mekkaniku, għal programm ta’ taħriġ aktar olistiku. Minbarra li jħejji lill-istudenti biex isiru teknixins tajbin, id-disinn tal-kors iħejjihom ukoll biex ikomplu l-istudji li jwasslu għal livell tal-baċellerat jekk ikun jixtiequ jagħmlu dan.
