Refresher Day with Exam


Refresher Day with Exam
by Zzeus Training Ltd

The refresher day is aimed at engineers who are currently practicing but may have not updated to the latest standard of BS5839-1. It is a very full day starting at 9am with an exam at 4 pm. You are expected to already have  in-depth knowledge of previous versions of BS5839-1 but need refreshing to the latest standard before your exam.

This is not an easy exam and will require previous training and experience on design, installation, commissioning and maintenance.
