Hi all,

I'm looking for recommendations on high voltage switching and power systems protection courses around the UK. I'm looking at The Faraday centre in Middlesbrough and ASET in Aberdeen. Both these centres provide both courses listed above. Has anybody completed these courses at these centres and would you recommend either?

Also if there's other centres that provide this training and anyone has attended I'd like to hear feedback as I'm open to all options. Thanks in advance.

Haven't done those but I did the 'Develop' AP15 HV course at Burn Hall, between Easingwold and York. I'd enquire with them to see if any courses they do meet your requirements. I enjoyed my course, but it could maybe have been better spread over two weeks. All my SAP and HV training hitherto was 'in house' and I asked for a commercialcourse to see how things went in the big bad world outside!

I've used the Faraday Centre for HV Switching/ Creation of Safe Systems of Work, as have colleagues - all happy. We'll use again.

They offer an assessment at the end of the course, when last I checked, the only other UK trainer doing this was Scottish Power who offered a C&G assessment (but this was ~ 50% more, in total). 3rd part assessment is very useful, especially if your employer's authorising officer is a manager with little understanding of matters electrical.

Re protection courses - no first-hand knowledge. I believe Faraday have a good reputation. EA Technology also offer courses you may find suitable.

Happy hunting
