High Voltage Switching Stage 1 & 2

This course is for those personnel whose role is to coordinate high voltage switching operations.

Course Outline

This course provides the practical skills and knowledge required to operate high voltage switchgear, perform switching to a switching program, write switching programs, control and coordinate isolation and access of local high voltage networks where multiple sources of supply can exist.

Mode of Delivery

This course consists of blended learning with initial theory and required knowledge delivered online at the learner’s pace followed by a two days offace to face simulated workshop/classroom learning to complete practical elements and final assessment.

Who Should Attend?

Electrical Tradesperson, Coordinators, and Engineers whose role requires them to control, coordinate and authorize access to apparatus forming part of HV network.

Refresher Training

Industry recommendation and best practice recommend high voltage switching refresher training be completed no later than 2 – 3 year intervals.
