Course Overview

The Certificate in Industrial Electrical Safety and Systems is recommended for anyone who works with electrical systems.

The QQI-accredited Certificate in Industrial Electrical Safety and Systems is a part-time course, typically delivered in block-release over a 6-week period. The CIESS programme aims to turn out technicians with a knowledge of industrial electrical engineering and the skills needed to specify, install, test, and validate electrical and control systems and their operations in a safe manner.

The programme will build the theoretical and practical aptitude of the learners and introduce them to key relevant technologies and knowledge necessary for employment in the industrial electrical sector.

The learners will gain a broad technical knowledge in the core discipline – electrical engineering and will be provided the theoretical and mathematical basis for these systems demonstrated through practical application.

Completion of the programme will allow them to understand the electrical maintenance systems and safety required in the manufacturing sectors.

Why study Industrial Electrical Safety and Systems with Griffith College?

  • Learners are introduced to industrial electrical engineering to support their working in industry or enhance employment opportunities.
  • The programme aims to turn out technicians with a knowledge of industrial electrical engineering and the skills needed to specify, install, test, and validate electrical and control systems and their operations in a safe manner.
  • The practical nature of the coursework lends to preparation for work in the industry.

Course Details

The Industrial Electrical Safety and Systems module is designed around industrial manufacturing and maintenance personnel, to support an understanding of working with industrial electrical systems.

CIESS is designed to give non-electrical personnel the ability to diagnose industrial faults and to carry out repairs/replacement safely.

Learners will be introduced to a clear understanding of the fundamental electrical principles, laws, and concepts relevant to industrial electrical systems as the module design of a mix of theoretical and practical elements.

The programme will build the theoretical and practical aptitude of the learners and introduce them to key relevant technologies and knowledge necessary for employment in the industrial electrical sector.

On successful completion of this programme, learners can:

  1. Recognise the safety standards associated with working with electrical circuits and understand how to use electrical test equipment correctly.
  2. Appraise, apply the principles, and perform calculations on AC and DC electric circuits.
  3. Apply power calculations to electrical systems and understand the effects on transmission and distribution of electrical power in Ireland.
  4. Describe the operation, configuration and testing of AC induction motors, interpret electrical drawings and build a basic electrical circuit.

How to Apply

Entry Requirements
