Course Summary

The High Voltage Switching Skill Set is delivered face to face with both a theory and practical component over a four day period. Upon successful completion the student will receive a Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment

ICG's High voltage switching training is a specialised program designed to educate individuals on the safe and effective procedures for operating and maintaining high voltage electrical systems. High voltage switching is a critical aspect of electrical work, especially in industries such as mining, large construction projects, power generation, transmission, and distribution.

The training typically covers a range of topics including:

  1. Safety procedures: Emphasizing the importance of safety protocols when working with high voltage equipment to prevent accidents, injuries, and fatalities.
  2. Electrical theory: Providing a foundational understanding of electrical principles, including voltage, current, resistance, and power, to ensure safe operation.
  3. Equipment operation: Teaching participants how to operate various types of high voltage switching equipment such as circuit breakers, disconnect switches, and transformers.
  4. Lockout/tagout procedures: Instructing on the proper use of lockout/tagout systems to isolate electrical circuits and equipment during maintenance or repair work.
  5. Risk assessment: Identifying potential hazards associated with high voltage switching operations and implementing appropriate control measures to mitigate risks.
  6. Emergency response: Training individuals on how to respond effectively to emergencies such as electrical fires, equipment failures, or personnel injuries.
  7. Regulatory compliance: Ensuring that participants understand and comply with relevant safety standards, regulations, and industry best practices.

Our High voltage switching training is conducted by experienced instructors who will use a combination of classroom instruction, practical demonstrations, and hands-on exercises to impart knowledge and skills to participants.
