High Voltage Training Management Level
This course is suitable for marine engineering officers, electrical or electro-technical officers, engineer surveyors and marine superintendents. The training gives seafarers the essential education and training in high voltage (HV) installations to meet the knowledge, understanding and proficiency requirements as set out in STCW 2010 Tables A-III/2 and A-III/6 for electrical, electronic and control systems at the management level.
The course consists of a blend of classroom and practical training using dedicated facilities to enable students to achieve the following training outcomes:
- Management of HV operations on board a ship, including familiarization with HV safety rules, procedures and legislation, knowledge of electrical hazards, and completion of safety records and documentation.
- Understanding the HV system and the maintenance of distribution capability, including operational and safety features, function of protection devices, HV switch room arrangements, analyzing the protection of marine distribution systems and practical maintenance.
- Identification of faults within an HV system and reconfiguration of the system to maintain electrical supply, including identification of fault levels and conditions, and compiling and implementing a switching plan to isolate a high voltage distribution fault.
