Basic Electrical Safety Competence (BESC) scheme
The Access, Movement & Egress registration scheme is intended for all persons who will be required to carry out duties on or near operational plant and equipment in transmission and / or distribution electricity environments. It replaces the previous Basic Electrical Safety Competence (BESC) scheme, however to aid recognition for delegates transferring to the new schemes the ‘BESC’ notation has been retained.

AME assessments are available in the following areas of electrical transmission and distribution:
