    High Voltage Training

    High Voltage Isolation and Access Training

    (HVIA/High Voltage Switching) – High Voltage Switching Training Courses

    Volt Edge delivers units from the UET12 Transmission, Distribution and Rail Sector Training Package as well as the UEP12 Electricity Supply Industry – Generation Sector Training Package from our Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Mackay and Perth Training Centres (or on your site).
    High Voltage Switching is a skill set that allows the student to;

    • Write switching sheets
    • Perform switching operations
    • Develop switching programs

    The High Voltage Switching Training 3 day course can be completed by anyone who wishes to perform high voltage switching, whether they have little or no experience to extensive experience within the industry. For the more experienced students it is recommended that they also complete further training with the 2 day High Voltage Coordination course to further their knowledge.

    • High Voltage Isolation for Access (HVIA)
    • Using switching sheets, access permits, test permits and vicinity permits
    • WH & S obligations and regulation’s including codes of practices and standards
    • HV equipment design
    • Earthing
    • 2 separate practical’s of HV apparatus.

    These courses are intended for high voltage workers, electricians, technicians and engineers involved with maintaining high voltage electrical equipment. It covers the legislation, theory and practical aspect to high voltage installations and maintenance.

    Electrical students who hold an unrestricted electrical licence are eligible to gain a Statement of Attainment with competencies from the UET12 Transmission, Distribution and Rail Sector Training Package and UEP12 Electricity Supply Industry – Generation Sector Training Package. Non Electrical students who do not meet the pre-requisites will gain a Statement of Attainment from the UEP12 Electricity Supply Industry – Generation Sector Training Package only.
