The Faraday Training Group has a number of electrical testing courses that incorporate pressure testing, earth electrode and transformer design. For further information on these courses, please see the list of options below. We also offer a Training package combining our four testing courses which, if taken together, will be discounted.
Electrical Pressure Testing – T1
This course covers the theoretical and practical principles of pressure testing on high voltage distribution systems up to and including 15kV, including the different insulating material characteristics as well as the methods used to enable the pressure testing of high voltage equipment, including cables, switchgear, transformers and motors with emphasis placed upon safety requirements and interpretation of test results.
Earth Electrode Testing – T2
This course outlines different types of earth electrode systems used in conjunction with high and low voltage networks including methods of testing earth electrode systems, earth resistivity and subsequent interpretation of test results (Note: this is not a design course).
Transformer Design, Construction, Testing & Maintenance – T3
This course provides technical information about the significance of various site tests that are carried out on high voltage transformers. It also covers practical methods of transformer testing including routine tests for post fault and preventive maintenance.
Cable Identification/Spiking – T5
This course is designed for electrical personnel responsible for identification/spiking and proving dead of HV power cables. (Note: this is not a cable fault location course).
