The new Certificate in High Voltage Electrical Systems [ 60 Credits at Level 6 ] is designed to upskill electricians and electrical engineers in the highly specialised area of High Voltage Electrical Systems. It aims to develop industry-recognised competence in areas such as High Voltage electrical installations, grid connections, substation maintenance and switching facilities.
The course is jointly delivered by SETU and TUS in a part-time, blended learning mode over one year - summer to summer. It utilises a work-based model and will have 30% of credits achieved in your place of work [Candidates must be able to complete their work-based learning in a mentored High Voltage environment].
The programme is delivered on campus one day per week over two semesters with an additional online learning offering each week to support the modules. There are two summer periods where the Industrial Portfolio & majority of the Electrical Safety Modules takes place.
HV Safety Compliance / Industry Applied Portfolio 1
Semester 1 (12 wks)
