This 5-Day Electrical Grounding Course encompasses three of our leading grounding and bonding courses:
Our 2-Day basic industrial Grounding and Bonding course is founded on the Electrical Code and is designed to give students the correct information they need to design, install and maintain effective electrical grounding systems in industrial, commercial and institutional power systems.
Our 1-Day High Voltage Grounding course will provide the basic principles of grounding a power supply network to ensure safety of personnel and equipment. Understanding these principles will provide the correct tools to design a grounding system applicable to utility networks and industrial plant distribution. This course covers the basic procedures in working safely on medium and high voltage systems.
The Oil & Gas sector relies on the efficient transportation, handling and processing of many hazardous and highly flammable chemical products. These operations generate hazardous levels of static electricity. The first line of defence for catastrophic ignition and explosions is proper grounding & static control measures. This 2-Day Electrical Grounding for Oil and Gas Applications course covers proper grounding techniques for not only medium- and high-voltage systems but also low-voltage Instrument and Control Systems (IACS) that have been proven safe and reliable when employed in process control facilities.
Electrical grounding training subject matter can include:
These specialized electrical grounding training courses are designed for:
