Our high voltage courses are the defacto standard for much of the ROV industry, reflecting both industry best practice and current legislation whilst satisfying IMCA R005. We deliver this course at our training facilities in Windermere, Aberdeen and Singapore, client premises around the world or via distance learning.
Key Learning Outcomes
- Legislation and Responsibilities
- Permit to Work Systems
- System Components
- Systems of Work and Isolation procedures
- Test Equipment
- Hazardous Areas
- Equipment Installation in Hazardous Areas
Day One: High Voltage Safety Awareness
The first day of the course is classroom-based gives a comprehensive introduction to HV theory, safe working practices, industry “best practice” procedures and major local and global legislation.
Candidates are assessed by ‘open book’ exam.
Successful completion of day one of the course (or the theoretical elements of the distance learning programme) entitles the candidate to a certificate of “Training in High Voltage Safety Awareness (Knowledge Assessment)”.
Day Two: Practical Exercises and Assessment
Practical experience of high voltage isolation procedures using actual HV equipment under supervision.
Candidates are assessed by practical examination.
Successful candidates will be awarded certificates of “Training in High Voltage Safe Working Practice (Practical and Knowledge Assessment)”, and successful candidates with suitable technical background and experience may be assessed for a certificate of “Competence in ROV Safe Working Practice” allowing them to work as an Authorised Isolating Authority.
The theoretical portion of the course is equivalent to our High Voltage Distance Learning package, which offers a more flexible option for personnel and companies who may find it difficult to schedule a classroom-based course. Once the theoretical component has been successfully completed, the candidate may undertake a practical exercise under the supervision of an MTCS-approved assessor (who can be another member of company personnel with suitable accreditation and experience) to gain the same certification outcomes as the classroom-based course.
