Toronto Electrical Grounding Training Week

Toronto Electrical Grounding Training Week

3 Great Courses: Basic Grounding and Bonding, HV Grounding, Grounding For Telecommunications Networks.

This 5-Day Electrical Grounding Course encompasses three of our leading grounding and bonding courses:

Grounding and Bonding Training

High Voltage Electrical Grounding

Tower Grounding Training For Telecom Applications

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.

Our 2-Day Telecommunications Grounding course will define and completely explain grounding and bonding for telecommunications systems. It will provide information for the installation of a grounding and bonding system for communications infrastructure. 

This course will provide the participants with a good understanding of the principles of lightning protection and grounding of telecommunications facilities, such as self-supporting radio towers, guyed masts, monopoles and rooftop antenna mounting frames and structures and how techniques are applied in the field to protect these structures and the associated equipment, staff and the general public.
