What is the Earth Electrode Testing Training Course?

When electrical systems are made, particularly high voltage electrical systems, earthing (or grounding) the equipment is essential.

As high voltage systems are extremely dangerous, electrical engineers, technicians and contractors responsible for the installation, commissioning and testing of earth electrodes used on high voltage systems should have the necessary training to do so safely and effectively.

With our earth electrode training course, you’ll gain the understanding you need to do this through a mix of both theoretical and practical work and expert tuition from our professional high voltage training tutors.

What’s in the Course?

Please note that this is not a design course.

During this course, you’ll learn the different types of earth electrode systems used in conjunction with high voltage networks, including methods of testing earth electrode systems and subsequent interpretation of test results.

The following sections are covered as part of the earth electrode testing HV training course:

  • Purpose of Test
  • Testing Conditions
  • Test Equipment
  • Safety Considerations
  • Statutory Regulations and Standards
  • Test Results
  • Remedial Work
  • Testing Procedures
  • Course Review
