sorry, should be in English:
an Electrical Habilitation course for electricians and other people interested is now proposed by the Education Services in conjunction with TIS (paid by them). Action : Group Leaders (to supply names of people to be sent on a course);
gives the right for access to electrical installations.
Note added at 50 Min. (2007-03-20 08:51:32 GMT)
Electricity Study, choice and installation of electrical material.
Electrical habilitation: formation B2C and BR.
Automation: Programming of Telemecanique/Modicon PLCs (PL7-2, PL7-3, TwidoSoft PL7-Pro, Unity Pro y Concept) and OMRON PLCs.
- Risk Prevent: enspm
- Electrical Habilitation: Apave
- TPM (Total Productive Maintenance)
9. What is the link between the web-based safety course 'level4' and "electrical habilitation"?
The web-based safety course 'level4' does not replace the classical "electrical habilitation".

As I received a lot of disagrees I looked now for a French definition and found the following:
Réservée au personnel non électricien
Préparation à l'Habilitations B0, H0, BS
Permettre au non électricien d’opérer sur tout ou partie d’un ouvrage en exploitation, après l’avoir mis hors tension
Toute personne non électricien chargé d'assurer des travaux(B0ou H0) ou de petites interventions prédéterminées par une note de service(BS)sur tout ou partie d'un ouvrage électrique en exploitation, mis hors tension.
followed by the subjects.
Préparation à l'Habilitation électrique Basse Tension B1 , B2 , BC, BR
Réservée au personnel électricien
Permettre aux électriciens d’opérer sur tout ou partie d’un ouvrage en exploitation en Basse Tension
Tout électricien chargé d'assurer des opérations sur tout ou partie d'un ouvrage électrique basse tension en exploitation telle que : consignations, essais, interventions (dépannages), mesurages, travaux, vérifications
also followed by the relevant subjects
The word habilitation can be translated either with aptitude, qualification, capability or competence. But which is used in GB or US?
Google hits are found for each term, e.g.:
The Basic Electrical Safety Competence (BESC) passport scheme is intended for anyone who carries out work either directly or indirectly on operational plant and equipment associated with the transmission and distribution of electricity.
ELECTRICAL safety courses
Who should attend:
Those who would benefit from basic training or a refresher course in electrical portable appliance testing.
Further information: Enquiries about the Certificate of Competence for the Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (City and Guilds 2377-002) and for the Management of Inspection and Testing should be made to 020 7594 9574 (Internal 49574) or by email
UC Irvine is required by California OSHA (Cal/OSHA), as well as other regulatory agencies, to provide protective equipment, training, guidelines, procedures and other protective measures for employees exposed to potential high voltage electrical hazards.
Qualified High Voltage Electrical Worker – A qualified person who by reason of a minimum of two years of electrical training and experience with high voltage circuits and equipment, who has demonstrated by performance familiarity with the work to be performed and the hazards involved, and has successfully completed the following training:
Qualification for electrical or electronics work is determined by the employee’s Supervisor, and is based on a combination of LBNL classroom training (including required periodic retraining), formal electrical trade, military, college or other training, work experience, and on-the-job training. Formal training can be the completion of apprenticeship or comparable training. Experience may be a combination of, or include, formal technical related education courses, hand-on field or classroom lab work that may or may not result in licenses or certifications.
In order to assure worker safety when dealing with electrical equipment or systems it is necessary to establish a category of "qualified worker''. The purpose of this document is to establish electrical worker qualifications at the Plasma Science and Fusion Center.
Qualified Electrical Worker: This is an employee or student who by virtue of experience and training, in the opinion of his/her supervisor and by the PFC Safety Officer and Asst. Safety Officer, can safely work on energized electrical systems at greater than 50 volts. This person must have sufficient understanding of an experimental device or facility to be able to positively identify and control the hazards it may present.
Knowledgeable Person: This is an employee or student who by virtue of experience and training, in the opinion of his/her supervisor and by the PFC Safety Officer and Asst. Safety Officer, has sufficient understanding of an experimental device or facility to be able to positively identify and control the hazards it may present.
Unqualified Worker: This is an employee or student who is not called upon to work on or near exposed energized electrical circuitry in the course of their job.
Licensed Electrician: This is a person who has a journeyman's license to perform electrical work issued by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Electrician's helper/apprentice: This is an employee, student, or contractor who is in training to become a licensed electrician.
Resume: I would propose to replace "electrical habilitation" by "electrical qualification" or "electrical competence (competence in electricity)"
