The purpose of this training is to provide seafarers with fundamental education and training on high voltage installations, ensuring compliance with the Knowledge, Understanding, and Proficiency (KUP) requirements outlined in the relevant section of the following:

·       Table A-III/1

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

·       Competence: Operating electrical, electronic, and control systems (part)

Training Outcome:

There are two outcomes to the training

Outcome 1: The learner knows the arrangement and protection of high-voltage installations on board a vessel.

Outcome 2: The learner knows the safety requirements necessary for high-voltage installations.
