Significant electricity infrastructure developments are required to meet future high demand growth and decarbonisation. This rapid expansion of electricity generation, transmission, distribution infrastructure will require a considerable increase in the number and diversity of organisations and persons working with electricity, and in particular High Voltage (HV) electricity. Without a complimentary investment in training, there is a potential deficit in the competence of persons and companies who manage and operate HV installations.

This course provides Employers, Asset Owners, Facilities Managers, Safety Professionals, Consultants, Contractors, Engineers, Technicians, and Graduates involved to any extent in design, construction, commissioning, maintenance and operation of HV installations, with an understanding of High Voltage Best Practice principles. This includes Competence Assessment, Electrical Safety Rules and Safe System of Work, HV Hazard Identification Risk Assessment, HV equipment maintenance and O&M documentation. Thereby giving a working understanding of the reasonably practicable measures that should be taken to satisfy the duties and requirements imposed on developers, designers and contractors by national legislation, so as to conform to EN 61936-1:2021 and EN 50110-1:2023. 

The course consists of 7 hours of online live sessions with the instructors. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account. After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge.
