Mobile Training Simulators

High Voltage Switching Simulator

Training Onsite, Anywhere, Anytime

The HV Switching Simulator provides an ideal temporary on-site facility to ensure students can genuinely demonstrate they can “Operate local HV switchgear” and “Perform switching” as required by the electrical safety training assessment criteria of UEPOPS116 – Operate Local HV Switchgear and UEPOPS124 – Perform Switching to a Switching Program.

A further advantage is that the high voltage switching and the operation of the HV switchgear and testing equipment are performed with the equipment de-energised providing a controlled and safe learning environment.

EEHA Practical Boards

Experience Hands-On Learning with Our Transportable EEHA Practical Boards

Our specially designed EEHA Practical Boards provide a realistic environment for learning about the installation, maintenance, testing, and inspection of explosion-protected electrical equipment. These portable units can be easily transported to any site, allowing trainees to complete practical training components without needing to access hazardous areas.

This innovative solution offers an effective and convenient way to gain hands-on experience in a controlled and safe setting, while promoting skill development and workplace safety.

Our Training Facility

Our Mackay based training facility is a modern, comfortable and multi-purpose venue with all of the equipment required to conduct our wide range of courses.
