Training Methodology

Classroom and practical work at the electrical lab.


The assessment comes in two parts:
  • Part one: theoretical and practical assessment upon the course completion
  • Part two: a theoretical assessment done by the electricity and water authority in Bahrain.


After successful completion, the candidate will receive a wireman license from Ministry of Electricity and Water.
