High Voltage Courses

The Faraday Centre undertakes a wide range of High Voltage courses - depending upon your level of knowledge and experience. The S4 is for those seeking Full Authorisation and our S9 course provides you with practical, hands on introduction. We have many other High Voltage courses for you to chose from. You will find further information on these courses below:

Refresher Training in the Safe Operation of High Voltage Power Systems - S3

This is a refresher programme designed for personnel who have limited high voltage authorisation, restricted to switching operations and issuing documents for work on single end circuits only.

Practical Introduction to the Safe Operation of High & Low Voltage Switchgear - S9

This course is designed specifically for individuals with little or no previous experience in high voltage switching.

It focuses on the practical (hands on) element of Switching and is predominately workshop rather than classroom based.

This course should be undertaken as a pre-cursor to the S4 or MAR4 ‘full authorisation’ courses.

Introduction to the Safe Operation of Marine/Offshore High Voltage Power Systems - MAR1

This is an intermediate training programme that requires a basic level of electrical knowledge. Upon successful completion of the course and subject to client approval, candidates will be able to enter marine and offshore high voltage switch rooms and perform limited switching operations etc. on high voltage equipment.

Candidates would be assessed to a competency level suitable for an Authorised Person issuing documents for work on single end circuits only.

Introduction to the Safe Operation of Marine ROV Power Systems - MAR2

This is an introductory training programme that requires a basic level of electrical knowledge. Upon successful completion of the course, candidates will be able to enter the electrical compartments of ROV (Remote Operated Vehicles) systems to carry out service operations.

The course will provide candidates with information about the safety procedures required to ensure that the high voltage systems are isolated, proved dead and earthed. (The MAR 2 course progresses to the MAR1 course, if more advanced training is required.)

The Safe Operation of Marine/Offshore High Voltage Power Systems - MAR4

This course is designed to bring candidates up to a competency level suitable for Senior Authorised Persons.

However, the course does not provide the “authorisation” itself. This must be provided by the client and based upon the Faraday Centre recommendation. The course is a marine/offshore development from our S4 course.
