Modern ships have adopted high voltage rather than low voltage by necessity in order to keep the physical size of related electrical equipment manageable. Inevitably, high voltage would otherwise introduce new risks to ship’s crew and the shipboard installations if necessary safety features were not built into the electrical system or safe operating procedures were not put in place.

COURSE SUMMARY:

The course is aimed at marine personnel who may be expected to implement on-board high voltage switching operations.

The course uses extensive practical exercises on modern high voltage equipment. The emphasis is on the safe working practices and procedures which should be followed before, during and after any high voltage work is undertaken. Successful candidates will be trained and able to work as authorized persons carrying out high voltage isolation and switching operations.

Candidates on the course will be trained in safe isolation procedures, the safe use of testing equipment and switching procedures together with the correct use of Electrical Permit to Work and Sanction to Test systems. During the course each candidate will design and implement switching plans based upon our distribution systems and be assessed by our trained assessors in the safe working practices they will be expected to demonstrate. MFI has fully-equipped high voltage electrical facilities. Learners will develop switching plans and implement them using our high voltage switchboards and distribution systems.
