Engineers’ Electrical Competency Training

The AVA Engineers’ Competence Training Courses are designed to help companies of all shapes and sizes comply with today’s legislation whilst keeping the costs to a minimum. The courses will provide vending-specific electrical training for all levels of engineers, from new starters to those with years of experience looking to refresh or further develop their skills. Successful course completion will lead to a certificate of competence which is City & Guilds recognised.
