This training program is designed to train expert electricians in the installation, repair and maintenance of electrical equipment in the Netherlands.


By completing our course, you will learn to work according to the NEN 1010 and NEN 3140 standards and receive the official certificate “Elektricien NEN-3140/ NEN-1010 VOP voldoende onderricht person”.

After completing our course, you will be able to work with electrical equipment in the residential sector, install and connect electrical panels, understand wiring diagrams and project documentation.


The abbreviation NEN stands for Nederlandse Norm.


NEN 3140 is an independent standard that contains all relevant requirements for low voltage installations in the Netherlands.


NEN 3140 applies to electrical installations and equipment with a rated AC voltage of 1000 V and DC voltage of 1500 V.


Like other NEN standards, this standard is not a law, but an agreement and practical guideline that has been made for and by the market.


This standard specifies the minimum safety requirements that low-voltage installations in residential, commercial, and industrial construction must meet.


Dutch law states that electrical installations and equipment must be safe and that work with or on these installations must be performed safely. The NEN 3140 provides the necessary provisions that you can use to comply with this and is the standard for working safely on and with low-voltage electrical installations in homes, buildings, and infrastructure. Following NEN 3140 is the best viable way to comply with these relevant laws and regulations.


As of  early 2024, NEN 3140 +A3:2019 is in effect. This is currently the standard and we will cover this in the electrician course.


NEN 1010 is the standard for low-voltage electrical installations in the private sector, construction sites, exhibition and fairgrounds and other temporary installations and infrastructure projects.


This standard specifies how low-voltage installations are safely installed, expanded, and adapted. This standard also provides insight into checks and inspections during the delivery of projects.


The current version of NEN 1010:2020 came into effect on 23-04-2021 via the Building Decree. The consequence of this is that when applying for a permit for a new structure, the standard NEN 1010:2020 must be used. It should be noted here that not the full NEN 1010:2020 is linked to the Building Decree.


The training will take place in English, Dutch or Russian language.


The theoretical knowledge in our course is closely linked to practical exercises.


The acquired knowledge and certificate will give you the opportunity to get a job in Dutch and international companies in the Netherlands. We also offer courses about other topics, such as Solar panel installation course.


Our company will do everything we can to help you find a new job as an electrical fitter. For this purpose, we have developed a number of measures to help you achieve your goal.


The course is suitable for English-speaking students who want to acquire an electrician in the Nederland. And also for experienced electricians and electricians who want to get acquainted with Dutch standards and labour rules.
