NAPITTechnical Seminars inNorthern Ireland

N APIT recently hosted three successful CPD seminars to members, electrical contractors and other organisations in Northern Ireland. The seminars took place in Omagh (18th Feb) and Belfast (19th Feb) and covered the latest changes to the Regulations including Amendment 1 to BS 7671 Electrical Vehicle Charging, Surge Protection and Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) coding. Frank Bertie, NAPIT Chief Technical Officer along with other NAPIT technical experts, Paul Chaffers and Richard Townsend, provided the FREE CPD sessions. The events were split into two sessions; one for electricians and electrical contractors, and a second one aimed more for Local Authorities and the education, health, water and transport sectors. Garo and Megger supported the events and provided visitors with advice and demonstrations of their products. Garo showcased their range of Electric Vehicle charging points and Megger, their latest test equipment.

Mike Andrews, NAPIT Chief Executive Officer, said: “I’m really pleased with the reception we received at our technical seminars in Northern Ireland. There were engaging conversations and participation from visitors, and it was great to provide

technical content which promotes electrical competence to support contractors within the UK. These events form part of our objectives of raising standards and promoting technical excellence within the electrical industry.”

NAPIT raises £500 for Northern IrelandAir Ambulance

F ollowing the release of the 2nd Edition of the EICR Codebreakers publication, NAPIT donated a number of books to Electrical Training Trust (ETT) to be sold to help raise money for the Air Ambulance Northern Ireland charity. NAPIT generously donated £500 to the charity from the proceeds. Air Ambulance NI provides the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the region. The helicopter carries a pilot, doctor and paramedic as part of its crew 365 days of the year, operating for twelve hours every day, and attends some of the most traumatic medical incidents. During a series of technical seminars in Northern Ireland in February, Breige Mullholland, Head of Operations and Finance at Air Ambulance NI, came along to NAPIT’s final event in Belfast where the donation cheque was presented. Breige said: “On behalf of Air Ambulance NI I would like to thank NAPIT and ETT for the donation of £500 towards the charity. Each day we are tasked to serious trauma incidents, and this donation will enable us to continue to do so. Our team delivers pre-hospital emergency care to those in need most. Without your support this would not be possible.”
