E-learning NEN 3140: Working safely on or near electrical installations (low voltage)

Duration: For Skilled persons (SP): approx. 4 hours, For Instructed persons (IP): approx. 3 hours
Price : € 200,00 (excl. VAT) per person

This training course gives you an understanding of how to work safely with, and in, electrical installations and electrical work equipment.
NEN 3140 applies to electrical installations and electrical work equipment of a nominal voltage of a maximum of 1,000 V alternating current and 1,500 V direct current.

For whom?

• Electrically educated technicians or student electrical technicians: senior technicians who work in new build, maintenance and repair of electrical installations and work equipment such as machines with an electrical risk;
• Non-electrically educated technicians with experience of electrical work activities who can independently carry out work activities with an electrical risk;
• People other than electrical experts, such as operators, caretakers, etc. who carry out simple electrical activities, with or without a major risk, as an extra task

What will you learn:

  • You know the dangers and their possible consequences when working with electricity, such as the danger of electric shock, fire and short circuits;
  • You know the procedures for dead working and for working in the vicinity of live parts, maintaining the specified minimum safety distances;
  • You can relate the electrical risk to the personal protective equipment, devices and tools to be used to mitigate such risk;
  • You know how to complete a last-minute risk assessment before starting work on or with electrical equipment and installations;
  • You know the basic principles and components of electrical installations, such as TT and TN systems, electrical separated circuits, SELV circuits, overcurrent protection, residual current devices, design and operation of installations, equipment classification;
  • You know the requirements of the Dutch Occupational Health and Safety Act on working with electricity and its practical implementation based on NEN 3140;
  • Depending on your results on the final test as well as your practical experience and electrotechnical knowledge, the nominated person in control of a work activity/of an electrical installation may appoint you as instructed person or as skilled person, duly considering the authorities granted or restrictions imposed by the employer.


The e-learning ends with a test. You choose Test for IP if you have not acquired any specific electrotechnical training. You choose Test for SP if you have a background in electrical engineering by training and/or practical experience. After successful completion of this test, you will receive a NEN certificate.

Lower costs

Employees do not have to travel to attend the training outside.


The e-learnings are developed by experienced teachers who are close to the source, but also by experts in the field of digital learning. In addition, employees are presented with the same information, up to date and readily adapted to the latest insights.


Trainings are divided by subject and therefore easy to integrate with existing learning interventions (for example classroom training or toolbox meetings)

Monitor real time

Management information is available that assists with increasing focus on key issues.

Possibility for technical integration

The e-learning can be integrated in a companies LMS and can placed by SCORM compliancy.

Scalable and flexible

Thanks to e-learning, it is possible to train more people in a shorter time. In addition, participants have 24/7 access to their personal learning environment via PC, tablet or smartphone.
The training consists of 8 modules:
Module 1: About this course
Module 2: Basic knowledge of electricity
Module 3: Risks of electricity
Module 4: Finding your way through the standard
Module 5: Carrying out work
Module 6: Work equipment
Module 7: Installations
Module 8: Test
