We’re pleased to be showing off our new EEESafe DAT(Domestic Appliance Technician) and DAR (Domestic Appliance Refurbisher) Qualification Manual. This accompanies the EEESafe Qualification course which will be undertaken at a Registered EEESafe Training Centre. With 180 Pages, it forms guidance for the required evidence collection of the qualification in the form of a candidate portfolio which is aligned to a series of industry-standard National Occupational Standards. This manual accompanies our Trainers Manual with almost 300 Pages, together with additional candidate notes and our Assessors Manual for the Qualification.
It allows a Registered candidates’ individual learning achievements, to be recognised on a Unit by Unit Basis. The qualification has 6 units to complete and the manual is designed to assist the candidate alongside the course, and to record and gather the evidence required to achieve the Qualification.
Each of the 6 unit sections begins with an overview of what the unit relates to, provides areas to record the required achievements which are subject to recognised assessment processes and both internal and external verification. When completed successfully the submission will be signed off by EEESafe and a qualification certificate issued to the individual. It is planned to gather a network of EEESafe Centres around the UK, many of whom could become local assessors for EEESafe and enable this course to be available near where you live.
In addition to essential technical and practical appliance-related skill sets the EEESafe course also includes detail of how to use the EEESafe Appliance Safety Register. and teach the relative aspects of Waste Prevention and fully associating the brand with everything to help the environment. The inclusion of this the specific Waste Prevention aspects are a mandatory requirement for EEESafe DATs and DARs to use this register to ensure as many homes as possible have the opportunity to protect their homes from housing a Product Recall or indeed to help prevent the passing on a Product Recall, to another unsuspecting householder or Landlords property. The Register has no Manufacturer control, but accesses the same warning information they provide, so you won’t receive any Sales Calls and will receive Free alerts when a Product Recall occurs.
The EEESafe DAT will be your go to person for protecting the environment, and delivering Registered repairers living at the heart of the neighbourhood where you live. The Register will give access to tools that can link up consumers and Landlords to the most local EEESafe repairer, keeping the repair costs as low as possible and help keep your property safer when you’ve registered.
It will also assist the localisation and availability of recycled spares as well as links to the purchase new spares, allowing you the consumer to make informed choices that can help prevent waste AND also record the savings of CO2 and Tonnage of Waste when you choose to Reuse.
It will assist in giving consumers access to a Regulated Appliance Repairer who works to a standard that is safer than a British Standard, when applied to the White Goods sector.
EEESafe deals in White Goods Spares and materials Waste Prevention through consumer engagement and by developing Certified and Qualified skills in the Community. We provide solutions to the accountability question (of your repairer), skills recognition and offer easy routes to dispose of their used appliances legally, using our innovative Appliance Safety Register.
EEESafe will provide Communities with their own online Community Shop, that not only lets consumers sell or gift their old appliances but all sales fees, will generate a 25% donation of money to the local community and in turn create a local Volunteer Currency. to help receive local benefits from participating businesses.
So as you look to Register your Appliances in the future, choose our Register which leads you to find an EEESafe Registered Repair Technician, Certified or Qualified nearest to where you live. It’s safer and will build a great Community Model embedded in your community’s LocalitEEE platform.
We are close to finding our first Community Trial Partner, which when completed, we will begin to work on rolling out more Training Centres and communities in the UK. Our goal is a network of skilled repairers in the Community, doing safer repairers, reducing harmful waste and keeping costs as low as possible without compromising safety and quality. If you have an interest in this then contact us here.
If you want to see the type of things that can cause fires in White Goods, then please take a look at this Document. We’re sure you’ll appreciate then why having a real depth of knowledge will make repaired and refurbished appliances safer to use, instead of relying on someone who’s just worked out how to repair, using online steps and videos. Don’t make the wrong assumption either that an Electrician knows how to repair White Goods. We’ve seen a common lack of understanding from Electricians who attended thousands of our training courses spanning 40 years.
EEESafe Qualified Repairer Technicians will have assessed sector-specific appliance-related technical knowledge and skills. They align to an independent safe standard for Repair or Refurbishment which in turn will create more confidence for consumers when seeking appliance Repair or purchasing of Reused Items.
Be part of the new world of Safe Repair, Reuse and Refurbishment of Electrical Appliances. One that delivers a higher safety standard, community evidence of charitable local financial giving and the evidence of yours and your community’s contribution to help save the planet.
