    Course Overview

    This course provides an understanding of industrial high and low voltage power systems including safe operation on a wide range of power equipment. It enables candidates to perform advanced HV switching operations on industrial HV networks up to and including 33kV (please see course dates for further info). This prepares them for HV authorisation in accordance with their company’s safety rules/regulations. It includes both classroom theory and practical exercises. Upon completion, candidates will be assessed to a competency level suitable for switching and issuing documents for work on all types of circuit.
