Course Overview

The High Voltage Switching Operations Refresher course has been developed by industry professionals to re-validate and refresh participants competency in relation to High Voltage (HV) activities. The HV refresher course meets the requirements of the Guidelines for the safe management of high voltage (HV) installations in WA.

It is recommended that this course be completed every 2-3 years as per industry standard. With a blended learning approach, students will be updated on legislation changes, industry practices and will be able to validate their skills and knowledge through the theory and practical assessments.

Successful completion will provide students and employers with a verification that participants meet the required competency levels to safely carry out High Voltage switching.
