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
