High Voltage (HV) Operational Safety (refresher plus)

Course Overview

Statutory Legislation requires that persons working on or around HV networks receive refresher training as required to maintain competence. This is typically every two to four years, but is dependant on the frequency that the skills are used and the individual’s experience.

The course is for anyone working on or around HV systems and who have previously attended a 5 day HV operational safety course. This is similar to the 2 day course but with a higher practical content for people who do not get the opportunity to operate regularly.
