High Voltage Training

Our High Voltage Operate, Develop and Perform and High Voltage Coordinator courses are nationally accredited courses and have been very popular courses with existing industry and persons seeking High Voltage Switching Training to improve their employment prospects. HVIA or High Voltage Isolation and Access is the main reason why it is taken so seriously as the access means some one will, after all is said and done, touch the HV lines or apparatus. Therefore, it must be isolated, proven de-energised and shorted to earth to be considered safe. (HV) High Voltage Training is generally renewed every two years.

Volt Edge has dedicated HV training facilities in Mackay, Brisbane, Perth Darwin and Melbourne.
