High Voltage Training –Management Level

Duration: 5 day

Commonwealth Of Dominica Approved

The approval body for certification is the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA). The course is aimed at Marine Engineering officers who may be expected to supervise and/or implement on-board high voltage switching operations as an “authorising officer”. The course will also be valuable for Engineer Surveyors, Marine Superintendents, serving marine electricians and is a requirement for ETO CoC.

The 5 day High Voltage Training course meets the requirements of STCW (Manila amendments 2010) for revalidation of Second/Chief Engineer Officer CoC Reg. III/2 and III/3 (Management Level) ref MIN 423 (M) and for ETO CoC.

NMI have fully equipped modern marine high voltage electrical facilities and equipment which are used during extensive practical exercises.


The emphasis is on the safe working practices and procedures which should be followed before, during and after any high voltage work is undertaken.

Successful candidates will be trained and able to work as “authorising officers” within a team carrying out high voltage isolation and switching operations.

To comply with exacting safety requirements all candidates on the course will be trained in safe isolation procedures, the safe use of testing equipment and switching procedures together with the correct use of Electrical Permit to Work and Sanction to Test systems.

During the course each candidate will design and implement switching plans based upon our distribution systems and be assessed by our trained assessors in the safe working practices they will be expected to demonstrate.

This course is designed to meet specific part of the regulatory requirements of Table A-III/2 (management level) of the Annex to the International Convention on Standards of training, Certification and Watch keeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978, as amended.

Candidates must have either:


Prior electrical or electro-technical experience in a shipboard environment;

Have completed 12 months sea time as an EOOW; or
the course can be completed as part of an initial electro-technical training programme.
