ECS (Tutorial) - Related Discipline Card, Electrical Safety Course Information This post provides support and a tutorial for the Electrical Safety Essentials Course and also Online Proctored Assessments

The Electrical Safety Essentials Course has been produced to provide the knowledge based training to help delegates pass the Electrical Safety Unit required as part of the ECS Related Discipline Card. The required pass-mark for the formal assessment is 80%.

In this blog we will provide you with support on using our online course and help to answer the most frequently asked questions along with providing guidance on booking exams.

Recommended Devices and Internet Browsers
The courses will work on most devices, however for the best experience we do recommend screen sizes no smaller than 10 inches. 
Our recommended browsers on all devices are Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Recommended Study Plan

1. Do a Practice Assessment - located under the course resources ribbon to set a baseline assessment of your knowledge before you start the main course units. 

2. Commence on the main course units listed under course units ribbon. Although completing these can be done in around 4 hours of study, we recommend breaking your study into smaller sections. A great advantage of e-learning is if you feel tired, or you feel you need a break, you can leave it and return later. We recommend learning sessions of around an hour with a full break away from screen for at least fifteen minutes, with perhaps a short walk and some fresh air.

3. Repeat practice assessments until you feel confident about passing with scores of 80% or higher - revisit main learning units to refresh areas you feel weak on. Note the passmark for the ECS Electrical Safety unit formal assessment is also 80%, so this is a tough test to pass, therefore the more you practice and the higher your practice score above 80% the more likely you are to pass!*
