High Voltage Electrician Training

High Voltage Electrician Training

This High Voltage Electrician Training course is designed to provide electrical maintenance personnel with the what, why and how of high voltage electrical maintenance testing.

Our 2-Day High Voltage Electrician Training Course covers and exceeds  provincial and federal electrical safety requirements for working on electrical equipment that is 750V or greater. 

By reviewing electrical testing specifications developed by NETA, maintenance personnel can create a high voltage maintenance program designed to meet your facility's needs. It will also help them decide what can be done by in-house personnel and what is best left to an accredited electrical testing professional.

As well as helping students keep abreast of the latest technologies and techniques available in this area, this High Voltage Electrician Training Course  offers an excellent opportunity for delegates to ask specific questions and exchange ideas relating to their own applications. This is designed to be an interactive, problem-solving, learning environment for delegates of all disciplines.

This comprehensive two-day High Voltage Electrician Training Course provides invaluable information to anyone who wishes to know and understand the role of high voltage electrical maintenance standards, programs and procedures for the optimal high voltage maintenance of electric power systems. The importance of planning, programming and implementing electrical maintenance practices will be emphasized. This course also deals with safety considerations involved in high voltage electrical maintenance procedures for all the components of any electrical system. This will be an interactive forum where the instructor will lead the discussion between students so as to maximze the educational experience.

Electricians responsible for high voltage electrical equipment will learn predictive and preventative maintenance techniques and priorities through a through examples of common and catastrophic electrical failures.
