This course aims to train mariners to be capable of managing high voltage operations on board ship, understanding the high voltage distribution system & the importance of maintaining distribution capability, and identifying faults within a high voltage system and reconfigure the system to maintain supply. The course meets the criteria of the MNTB Shipboard HV guidelines and requirement of STCW (Manila Amendments 2010). The learner will meet the three outcomes of the course:-
- Outcome 1: The learner can manage high voltage operations on board a ship.
- Outcome 2: The learner understands the high voltage system and the maintenance of distribution capability.
- Outcome 3: The learner can identify faults within a high voltage system and reconfigure the system to maintain supply.
