This module is designed for employees (participants) from the areas of engineering, construction, commissioning and service & maintenance of electrical systems and equipment with electrical engineering training.
Electrical specialists are qualified to carry out, supervise and be responsible for electrotechnical work on equipment, electrical systems and in electrical operating facilities. The module also covers laws, standards and guidelines, electrical components and hazards in electrical engineering.
with switching qualification for switching authorization
The basis of this course is the module “Electrician Basics“. On top of this module the following additional contents will be covered. Electricians are trained to carry out switching work in the medium-voltage grid up to 52 kV.
They are authorised to connect and disconnect electrical operating sites to the distribution network. Electrical installers are responsible for the management of electrical installations and operating sites as plant and/or work supervisors.
Starting from some general basics, the most important types of drives are introduced one after another in this course. Every electric drive is characterised by its electric motor. The considerations of the drives will therefore always begin with functional descriptions of the type of motor used and will then be extended to the actuators and methods for controlling and regulating the drive.
