    Course Overview

    This course is designed to enable those who are required to carry out testing on high voltage equipment to become authorised to receive sanction for test documents in relation to safe practices and legislation applicable to high voltage power systems up to and including 15kV.  It includes both classroom theory and practical exercises.

    Upon completion, candidates will be assessed to a competency level suitable for an Authorised Person (AP) requiring receipt of sanction for test documents.

    Who should attend?

    Personnel with prior knowledge of the inspection, operation, maintenance and repair of high voltage electrical power systems.
