STCW 2010 High Voltage Course - Management Level - MCA approved



The objective of this training is to provide seafarers tasked with overseeing the safe control and management of high voltage power systems with the necessary education and training on high voltage installations. This ensures compliance with the Knowledge, Understanding, and Proficiency (KUP) requirements outlined in the specific section of the following:

·       Table A-III/2

·       Function: Electrical, electronic, and control engineering at the management level.

Competence: Managing high voltage installations, troubleshooting, and restoring electrical equipment to operating condition.

Training Outcome:

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.
