The HVLV Switchgear Operations Course (Virtual) aims to provide learners with the knowledge and skills on high voltage and low voltage switchgear operations, particularly how to perform HV and LV switchgear switching and isolation operations effectively and safely. The first part of the course introduces the learner to topics on the dangers of electrical hazards, electrical safety and the law, and safe systems of work. Next, topics on the overview of power network structure, detailed coverage of the electric distribution systems and the synchronization of distributed generators are discussed. The construction, types and operations of High Voltage Switchgear and Low Voltage Switchgear systems are presented next. Compiling and implementing Switching Plan including performing switching, switchgear isolation and re-energization is covered as the final topic. To enhance the learning process, the course includes video shows of practical demonstrations of HV and LV switchgear switching and isolation, and implementation of a switching plan.

Course Duration (Days)
Learner will be assessed by means of formative assessment and summative assessment. Formative assessments are conducted during training at the end of each learning unit. Learner will need to demonstrate understanding by answering all questions correctly before proceeding to the next learning unit. Summative assessment includes compiling a switching plan and a knowledge test (through Class Marker-online software).
All applications are to be submitted online / via email at least 3 days prior to course commencing date. Successful applicants will receive the course confirmation and payment advisory email. Registration is only confirmed upon full payment of course fees.
