CPD Refresher – UA Basic Electrical Knowledge

Who is this refresher course for?

These courses are accredited by City & Guilds NPTC and from 2022 will replace the need to re-take any of their UA Qualifications, as would have happened previously; attendees will receive a “Digital Credential”, via email, upon completion of the refresher course.

CPD Refreshers for Utility Arboriculture Operators are required to be completed every 3 years to keep your qualification valid.

This CPD Refresher Course will provide the attendee with an updated knowledge of basic electrical knowledge, relevant to the utility arboriculture sector.


1 days Refresher Training with an integrated City & Guilds NPTC CPD Assessment


max. 6 per course


This is normally completed at our site locally to Builth Wells.
If you have enough people for a full course, we are able to run this course on your site (subject to a pre-course visit).
