Electrical Section

The Electrical Section of the Jubilee Technical Training Centre is equipped with ultra modern training equipment for electrical technicians for manufacturing and energy (Oil & Gas) sectors and related domestic installations. The section has three highly trained and experienced trainers from Takoradi Polytechnic, Ghana and two consultants from TTE, UK. The section is designed to develop the skills and competencies of industrial technical workers in to enhance their potentials and help them to perform satisfactorily in industry.
Electrical Course

The main electrical course at the Jubilee Technical Training Centre (JTTC) is a full 26 weeks (Six months) of training on the NVQ - QCF Level 2 Diploma in Performing Engineering Operations (PEOs) within a Replicated Work Environment (QCF). The qualification will prepare learners for entry into the engineering (Oil and Gas), manufacturing and energy sectors, creating a professional progression between education and employment and it will also provide a basis for the development of additional skills and occupational competences in the working environment.

What is the purpose of this qualification?

This qualification is appropriate for employees in the engineering sector working across a broad range of areas. It is designed to assess occupational competence in the workplace where learners are required to demonstrate skills and knowledge to a level required in the engineering industry.

Who is this qualification for?

There are no entry qualifications or age limits required for this qualification, unless this is a legal requirement of the process or the environment. This qualification is for all learners who are capable of reaching the required standards. It is required that the qualification should:

be free from any barriers that restrict access and progression
Ensure equality of opportunity for all wishing to access the qualification.

The benefits of this qualification to the learner and employer

This qualification allows learners to demonstrate competence against National Occupational Standards which are based on the needs of the engineering industry. As such it contributes to the development of skilled labour in the sector.

Subjects to Cover during the Training period include:

Basic Electrical,
Electrical Principles,
Electrical Drawings,
Electrical Fault Diagnosis and Motor
Electrical Health and Safety,
Earthing Systems,
Circuit Protective Devices,
Tools Equipment and Fixings
Cables and Circuit Types,

Manual Handling Operations regs.), Safe Working Practices, Permit to Work, Confined Space, Signs & Signals, Fire Prevention & Emergency Procedures, Risk Assessment, Working at Height etc.

At the end of the course, students will have the Skills and Knowledge needed to prove the competences required to:

Work safely in an engineering environment in accordance with instructions and by the use of safe working practice and procedures.
Cover a broad range of basic activities that will prepare the learner for entry into the engineering, oil and gas or manufacturing environments.
Make full use of text, numeric and graphical information, by interpreting and using technical information extracted from a range of documentation such as engineering drawings, technical manuals, technical specifications, reference tables and charts, electronic displays, planning and quality control documentation.
Perform activities involving assembling of electrical cable enclosures and support systems such as metallic and non-metallic conduits, metallic trunking and tray-work systems for mechanical protection.
Wire up, install and test electrical equipment and circuits to the required standards of IEE 17th Edition regulations.
Assembling, wiring and test electrical panels and components mounted in enclosures for controlling of electrical machines.
Select correct accessories, for the installation taking into account external influences such as water ingress, hazardous and non-hazardous environments

The section is currently running the following short courses:
