Industrial Training Simulators

High Voltage Switching Training Simulator

The HV switching course simulator provides an ideal temporary on-site facility to ensure students can genuinely demonstrate they can “Operate local HV switchgear” and “Perform switching” as required by the electrical safety training assessment criteria of UEPOPS349B – Operate Local HV Switchgear and UEPOPS456A – Perform Switching to a Switching Program.

A further advantage is that the high voltage switching and the operation of the HV switchgear and testing equipment are performed with the equipment de-energised providing a controlled and safe learning environment.
