At INT Services in Vlaardingen, we offer an electrician course in English or Russian language. Although the training takes place in Russian or English, we teach you also technical terminology in Dutch. In practice, it is useful to know the terminology in these languages as well. We link the theoretical knowledge in our course closely to practical exercises.

Finding a job with our electrician course

The acquired knowledge and the certificate give you the chance to get a job at Dutch and international companies in the Netherlands. Our company will make every effort to help you find a new job as an electrician. To do this, we have developed several measures to achieve your goal. In addition to the course, we train students in job search in the Netherlands, and they are represented by recruitment companies specialising in the selection of technical personnel. The course is suitable for Russian- or English-speaking students who wish to acquire the electrician specialty in the Netherlands. Experienced electricians and electricians who want to get acquainted with Dutch standards and labour rules can also apply for this course. Next to our electrician course, you can also register for our accounting course.

Course content

The NEN 3140

In the electrician course we offer at our accounting firm, we inform you about the NEN 3140. This is an independent standard that contains all relevant requirements for low-voltage installations in the Netherlands. The NEN 3140 applies to the operation of electrical installations and equipment up to a nominal voltage of 1000 Volts AC and 1500 Volts DC. 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 NEN 3140 standards

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

The NEN 1010

The NEN 1010 is the standard for low-voltage electrical installations in homes, buildings, construction sites, exhibition and fairground and other temporary installations and infrastructure. 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 (2015 version with supplement from 2016) came into effect on 13-01-2017 via the Building Decree. The consequence of this is that when applying for a permit for a new structure, the standard NEN 1010 (2015) with the additions of 2016 must be used. It should be noted here that not the full NEN 1010 is linked to the Building Decree.
