Course Description

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

Participants attending this programme will:

Return to their respective organizations equipped with new or refreshed skills to ensure that electrical equipment is inspected, tested and operated in a fashion that ensures reduced costs. On successful completion of this workshop, participants will have:

  • A better understanding of inspection and testing methods
  • A better understanding of troubleshooting procedures
  • An improved capability in the use of test equipment
  • A refreshed outlook on reading electrical drawings
  • A refreshed awareness of electrical safety concerns
