The essential seven-hour Passport for the electrical industry.
Who should attend this course?
All Electricians (or those employed within the electrical industry) who work on commercial or residential building sites:
- Registered Electrical Workers
- Non-Registered Electrical Workers
- CEOs and General Managers
The Electrical Passport is a seven-hour course designed with the EWRB to cover all things necessary for an Electrician to achieve their New Zealand Practicing License (Electrical and First Aid / CPR refresher), along with the Passport training requirements of Site Safe Charter Accredited and Head of Agreement Companies.
Why choose the Site Safe Electrical Passport?
By attending the Electrical Passport course you'll be attending an industry developed course combining the Site Safe Passport as well as an EWRB approved Competence Programme (more commonly known as a Practicing Licence Refresher).
The Site Safe Electrical Passport incorporates all the EWRB requirements for courses in electrical safety (including the new requirements around practical testing), basic First Aid/CPR, as well as the Construction Industry requirements for a Site Safe Passport.
This means you can renew your Practicing Licence as well as gain your Site Safe Passport
in one course, on the same day, at the same venue, in the most time and cost effective manner. We'll even throw in pizza for all attendees half way through the course.
What's in the newest version of the Electrical Passport?
The Electrical Passport is a seven-hour combined course delivered in three main parts: 1) the Passport component, 2) the Electrical Safety component (including practical testing), and 3) First Aid/CPR.
Part 1: Passport
The Passport component of the course is designed to improve safety awareness and actions and ensures that all workers coming on site have a basic understanding of their health and safety responsibilities. Workshops, discussions, videos and other activities are used to ensure engagement of trainees at all levels. In addition, elements of this course adopt a competitive group format further ensuring that the course is educational, interactive, motivating, group focused and enjoyable.
Both practical and behavioural themes are mixed together throughout the course to reinforce the importance of both. This includes:

Part 2: Electrical Safety (including practical testing)
This part reflects the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) Competence Programme (Electrical Refresher) requirements, and examines the prescribed refresher activities and the specific hazards and controls covered in legislation and codes of practice for the Electrical Industry.
It also incorporates the new practical testing requirements, with Trainees using their own test equipment to undertake tests in line with AS/NZS 3000:2007 section 8 and AS/NZS 3760:2010. A number of possible scenarios are looked at, including tests such as:
- Insulation resistance of an installation
- Main earth resistance
- Earth bonding to metalwork resistance
- Mains polarity
- Insulation resistance of the mains
- Continuity and polarity of the power circuit
- Ensuring the RCD is isolated on both live circuits when it is switched off
Part 3: First Aid/CPR
Finally a qualified First Aid/CPR Trainer will take trainees through the prescribed refresher activities and specific requirements covered in legislation and codes of practice for the Electrical Industry First Aid/CPR Refresher.
