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 it is also certified by MPA (Maritime And Port of Authority of Singapore). 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.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for Marine Engineer Officer (MEO) class 1 & 2, Electro Technical Officer (ETO), Marine Engineer surveyor, Marine superintendent, Marine Engineer officer who may require to supervise and/or implement on-board HV switching operation as an Authorised person; and preparatory as Chief Engineer officer COC.
