Batteries are complex electrochemical devices critical to the safe and immediate response of every substation to a fault condition.

This hands on program will train engineers, electricians and others how to maintain and test stationary batteries utilizing the latest standards of CSA, NFPA , IEEE and NETA.

This course is customized to the equipment of each client and the levels of each learner to ensure maximum skill transfer and participation. Participants will conduct load, impedance, conductance and other tests on various battery strings, analyze the data and judge the results.

 

Who should attend: Engineers, electricians, technologists and technicians

You will be able to: Test and maintain substation batteries

    The course is what you expect from a battery course. It is very good at explaining everything there is about Batteries and maintenance. I am glad I took part in the course today and will take the knowledge I learned and apply it to my job.
  • Ryan Lautner, Canadian Light Source
    A great deal of information. It will take some time to digest it all, but it will be beneficial.

      “The instructor, Ed Rideout is very knowledgeable in test equipment, great life experience in all types of test equipment. He is respectful of students and patient.” Ray Vinish, Mosaic Esterhazy
    • Mark Anderson, TransCanada Pipelines
      "I think the instructor was good because he realized that in our field of work we do not use a lot of the big breakers and racking etc. He geared the course with that in mind. Also, incorporated real life events because he had done the work before not just read it in a training manual."
