High voltage training - management level

This course is a three days course, approved by the Republic of Slovenia (Slovenian Maritime Administration) and by the Republic of Croatia (Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure) and by the Bureau Veritas (Maritime/Offshore Divison) in line with the requirements laid down by the STCW for revalidation of Chief Engineer Officer CoC Reg and Second Engineer Officers. III/2 and III/3 (Management Level). The course also meets the requirements of the Shipboard High Voltage Training guidelines and is aimed at Marine Engineering officers who may be expected to supervise and/or implement on-board high voltage switching operations as an "Authorised Person". Who should attend:
Chief engineer officers, Second engineer officers, Marine Electricians, ETOs, Engineer surveyors, Marine superintendents.

The course is designed to increase the troubleshooting skills and fault diagnostics procedures for marine electrical and mechanical engineers employed on various ships and offshore installations. This course will give knowledge and understanding of maritime HV installations and safety working procedures. The course will emphasize the safety aspect of electrical engineering work, recommendation on good safe practicies, procedures and precautions be taken to maximize the safety of personnel. The course will provide both theoretical and practical instructions in safe training enviroment.

This course is to be held every five years.

Main topics of the course:

  • International requisites for high voltage knowledge
