Introduction

This One-day course is designed to help those understand the construction and maintenance requirements for medium voltage X-link power cables. Anyone directly involved in terminating or those requiring an understanding of the various tests and or analyzing test results will gain a better understanding of best maintenance practices as required by industry accepted standards.

Our Program Is Based On:

Canadian Standards Association: CSA Z463- Standard for Maintenance of Electrical Systems Canadian Standards Association: CSA Z462- Standard for Electrical Safety. National Electrical Testing Association (NETA): ANSI/NETA 2019 Standard for Maintenance Testing Specifications

Additionally, as certified course developers, Canada Training Group courses are professionally designed to the standards of the Canadian Society of Training and Development, as well as the International Board of Standards for Training, Reviewance and Instruction. Canada Training Group is also proud to be ISO 9001 certified.

Our Instructor Team

Our instructors are certified electrical professionals with decades of hands-on field experience and solid credentials as professional adult learning instructors. This program includes professionally designed slides, videos, extensive use of case studies and hands-on demonstrations of common electrical problems. This program examines the electrical hazards found in industry and stresses the importance of the individual employee proactively recognizing hazards and applying safe work practices with the goal of zero incidents.

Objectives:

The successful candidate will be able to:

- Understand the difference between Run to Failure, Predictive & Preventive maintenance program

- Review multiple tests as per industry standard

- Be able to recognize deficiencies and take/recommend corrective action

- Work safely

    Ed Rideout has been involved with the electrical field in many ways for nearly 35 years. His electrical experience started when he was just out of vocational school and was hired as the sole electrician at a local fish plant in charge of six fishing trawlers, a power house and a fish plant facility. In 1975 Ed went on to work with Nova Scotia Power, first as an apprentice electrician in a generating...

    • Bryce Balciunas, Mosaic Potash
      “I thought the instructor Ed did a very good job explaining the course. The instructor was very knowledgeable on what he was teaching us, and answered any questions we had. The course had a good breakdown of theory in the classroom, and hands-on in the trailer.”
    • G Ansell, Suncor
      "Ed Rideout was easy going and helpful, I liked the ``no question is a stupid question``. I would recommend this training to others, another tool added to the kit!! (How to Analytically Troubleshoot Electrical Systems)."
    • Jason Manning, Enbridge Pipelines
      “Ed was an excellent instructor for this course. He is very knowledgeable and personable. The course was very enjoyable. I liked that it was mostly hands on instead of in a classroom listening to a speaker all day, all in all a very worthwhile course to take. Ed needs a raise.”

    • Sam Butterfield, Imperial Oil, Esso
      “Fred was extremely knowledgeable; most instructors are not. He was able to go above and beyond my expectations when answering questions. The material taught was honest and contained just the facts. I would highly recommend this course.”
    • Karalee Krekosk, Syncrude Canada
      These instructors are very knowledgeable. I wish that they were either 1) my journeymen in my apprentice years or 2) my electrical instructors for years 1-4. I feel like I could ask them anything electrical related and that they could deliver the correct answer, explained in terms anyone would understand.
