Electrical Safety Training and Electrical Consulting

Electrical Safety Training

A&E Training and Technical Solutions provides comprehensive electrical safety training and technical training for your staff.  Our programs are designed to ensure that your employees meet the continuing need for safety and technical training to be able to understand existing and changing regulations, or to stay current with technical specifications.

Electrical Safety Training

This course is designed to introduce the employee, (Manager, Health and Safety Professional, Supervisor) to electrical safety in the work place.  This is a one day training program. For more information click the title above.

This one day program is designed to target the needs of the electrical worker in today’s work force.  Many of today’s injuries and accidents associated with the use of electricity are avoidable with the right safety and technical training.
This program consists of 8 lesson modules and videos;
