Who should attend

This course is designed for Electrical Engineers, Electrical Supervisors and Electrical Technicians engaged in the inspection and testing of Electrical Equipment.

About the course

To successfully inspect and test electrical equipment, Electrical personnel must first fully understand the technology of the equipment. After the successful start-up and subsequent continued operation, electrical equipment requires periodic inspection and testing.

This will ensure the electrical equipment operates correctly so that production is maximized in a safe, cost effective and efficient manner.

Delegates are encouraged to raise queries both during and at any time after attending the workshop and are also asked to bring with them any technical issues that they may have.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Have a better understanding of inspection and testing methods
  • Better understanding of troubleshooting procedures
  • Improved capability in the use of test equipment
  • Refreshed outlook on reading electrical drawings
  • Refreshed awareness of electrical safety concerns
