Havells - New CIBSE CPD Courses Available

CIBSE CPD Courses - Electrical Surge Protection - Energy Metering

Havells - Mike Lawrence

Havells has developed new CIBSE accredited CPD presentations on Electrical Surge Protection and Electrical Energy Metering. Designed with the electrical trade in mind, the course offers a practical approach to specification and installation of surge protection equipment and electrical energy metering for both electricians and system designers.

Given by Mike Lawrence, Marketing and Technology Manager, Havells Switchgear, the presentations address the common issues faced by those in the trade with responsibility for specification and installation. Drawing on his 25 years in the switchgear business, Mike presents information on these important technologies and will share some of his experience, as well as offering an overall approach to the integration of these technologies within Electrical Circuit Protection in building services.

"I continue to see surge protection and electrical energy metering poorly specified or poorly implemented in non-domestic buildings,” says Mike. “Installation challenges continue to create added cost on projects and final solutions all too often do not achieve a fully satisfactory proposition for the end client. The courses address these issues and anyone attending will have a good understanding of the issues involved and be able to tackle their next project with confidence."
