Introduction

This One-day course is designed for substation engineers to learn the best practices in maintaining and testing substation grounding and bonding systems. Engineers directly involved in maintaining LV/MV/HV substations or those requiring an understanding of diagnostics and 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

- IEEE Standard 80

After the training, the successful candidate will be able to identify and mitigate job related hazards, safely operate and maintain electrical grounding system, be able to recognize deficiencies and take corrective action as well as to avoid accidents and injuries.


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.

Upon Completion:

The successful candidate will be able to:

- Canadian Electrical Code, CSA B-72, IEEE Std-81 and IEEE Std-80 requirements

- Identify and mitigate job related hazards

- Safely operate and maintain your electrical grounding system

- Be able to recognize deficiencies and take corrective action

- Avoid accidents and injuries
