Introduction

This one day course is designed to help those understand the construction and maintenance requirements for substation batteries. Anyone directly involved in maintaining 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 Specification

- IEEE Standards 450, 1106 & 1188 Standards for Battery Maintenance

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, Performance and Instruction. Canada Training Group is also proud to be ISO 9001 certified.
