Q: I attended this course 3+ years ago, do I need to take a refresher course?
A: We recommend that all Authorised Person courses are refreshed every 3 years to ensure you are up to date with the latest legislation and best practice.
Q: What is an Authorised Person?
A: An Authorised Person is defined as someone who has been formally authorised in writing to undertake a role.
Q: What voltages do you cover on this course?

Q: What do I need to wear to my course?
A: Everyday work wear or office wear is recommended, and to include not slip footwear. Our risk assessment has not identified any specific PPE.
Q: What is the difference between APHV, 1, 2, 3 & 4?
A: They are all HV courses designed for the prospective or current AP &/or SAP. HV1 is the basic course aimed at the more commercial sectors. HV4 is aimed at the same sectors but only for current SAPs. HV2 is delivered using HTM 06-03 rules for the hospital sector and HV3 is delivered using the JSP rules for the MOD sectors (but often used by the commercial sectors as a refresher course). For the hospital sectors requiring a 2 week course for the beginner, the HV1 followed by the HV2 will meet their requirements. For the MOD sector requiring a 2 week course for the beginner, the HV1 followed by a HV3 will meet their requirements.
