High Voltage Courses

The Faraday Training Group undertakes a wide range of High Voltage courses – depending upon your level of knowledge and experience. You will find further information on the courses below:

  • WT4 – The Safe Operation of High Voltage Power Systems on Wind Turbines (Authorised Person)

    This course provides an understanding of renewable energy industry high voltage power systems including statutory regulations, safe operation, protection and fault diagnosis. It enables candidates to perform advanced HV and LV switching operations on HV networks up to and including 36kV. It also prepares them for HV authorisation in accordance with their company’s safety rules/regulations. It includes both classroom theory and practical exercises.

  • S6 – Individual Review & Competence Assessment (Full High Voltage Authorisation)

    This is a practical programme designed to assess candidates’ safe switching practices when operating high and low voltage power systems up to and including 15kV. It is intended for candidates requiring independent external assessment of their level of competence. It is not a training course, rather an individual assessment and most dates can be arranged to suit the clients’ requirements. Assessment can be carried out either at our training centre or at the client’s premises.
