This course delivers in depth training on how to safely perform duties of a High Voltage Switching Operator. We cover the legislation, theory and practical aspect of high voltage switching.
This is a Nationally Recognised course which has been written to meet the requirements of the latest training packages; UET12 – Transmission, Distribution and Rail Sector Training Package and UEP – Generation Sector Training Package.
Electrical workers, technicians and engineers involved with maintaining high voltage electrical equipment. We cover the legislation, theory and practical aspect of high voltage installations and maintenance.Volt Edge students who hold an unrestricted electrical licence are eligible to gain a Statement of Attainment with competencies from the UET12 Transmission Package and UEP12 Generation package as listed on the next page. All other students will gain a Statement of Attainment from the UEP12 Generation Package only.
With 60% theory and 40% practical, this is a 3 day face to face course offered at all of our training facilities and on site upon request.
Students will complete a switching sheet, an access permit, and a theory exam.

We understand that sometimes combining courses or offering refreshers are much cheaper than either taking separate courses or re-doing a unit from the very beginning. Volt Edge has your back.
HV Switching Refresher – For most HV Switching Operators, their license needs to be updated every 2-3 years.
HV Switching Refresher and Coordination – Coordination on its own costs $495, but when you combine it with HV Switching Refresher, pay only $300 for the Coord units. The Coordination course will take approximately two days online to complete at your own pace.
HV Switching and Coordination – Enrol in these two courses together and save on what you would spend taking them separately.
To enrol in either HV Refresher, HV Refresher & Coordination, or HV Switching & Coordination, please go to the training calendar.
