Course Overview

An equipment is not ready for commercial service until it is proven by testing all its functions under different conditions. This is key for satisfactory operation of electric systems. Any errors missed in the previous stages of a project are discovered during commissioning.
This course is designed to give a clear understanding of the principles of electrical installation, commissioning and testing. It will also prevent injuries and damages during commissioning as trainees will fully understand the processes and plan all steps for the commissioning process.
