- Prior electrical or electro-technical experience in a shipboard environment; or
- Have completed 12 months sea time as EOOW; or
- Part of an initial electro-technical training programme.
To give seafarers responsible for the safe control and management of high voltage power systems the essential education and training in high voltage installations to meet the Knowledge, Understanding and Proficiency (KUP) requirements set out in the specific part of the following: Table A-III/2
Function: Electrical, electronic and control engineering at the management level.
Competence: Manage high voltage installation, trouble shooting and restoration of electrical equipment to operating condition.
There are three outcomes to the training;
- 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.
