What is a Skilled Person? 

To meet the quality requirements of a Competent Person, you must have had prior electrical engineering training or be able to demonstrate similar experience. A Competent Person is above a Sufficiently Trained Person and may – after being instructed by the employer – carry out independent inspections on electrical installations. 

What makes you a Skilled Person under NEN 3140 VP?

Before you can call yourself a Skilled Person, you must meet a number of requirements. For example, you need to be able to assess the hazards and risks involved in electrical work, and it is important that you know how to carry out electrical work safely. With this recognized course you will meet these quality requirements.

Is a NEN 3140 VP certification required?

With this course, the employer and the candidate both comply with the requirements of the Working Conditions Act and the Labour Inspectorate for a Skilled Person in accordance with NEN 3140. 

What is the difference between VP and VOP? 

Through the NEN 3140 VOP course (Instructed Person), it is possible to carry out electrotechnical operations – with a limited risk – as a non-electrotechnically trained person. Please note: this is done with specific instructions and a specific indication by the employer. 

However, a Skilled Person (VP) is electrically trained and may – after designation by the employer – independently carry out work on low-voltage installations, for example. A SIP/VOP is in fact under a VP. Are you already a VOP and you want to learn more in depth? Then follow a NEN 3140 course Skilled Person. 

Why take an NEN 3140 e-learning course? 

Not everyone is able to get to the course locations on the designated dates. This e-learning can simply be followed from your workplace or from home, at the time and place you have chosen. The same result, but prefer to work independently? Then this e-learning is definitely suitable!
