The course aims to enhance your knowledge about proper installation of high voltage cable splices and terminations. Installing and testing cables correctly can ensure an increased life and value for your cables and is therefore important in increasing the longevity of your investment. Any technicians, electrical engineers, and electricians that does installation and maintenance as well as trouble shooting of power cables will benefit from this course.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) based in New York shares that inadequate testing and installation prior to initiating cable splices and termination are the main reasons for failures. However, despite its importance, cable splicing and testing professionals have dwindled in numbers over the past years. With a steady demand for trained professionals, knowledge in this area is definitely an advantage for any electrical professional.

COURSE OUTLINE              


Power plant maintenance is performed to maintain power plants which includes the following activities including inspections, maintenance, and repairs for all the assets used throughout a power plant. It is crucial for safety and preserving the longevity of energy plant assets.

It is essential to ensure the safety of personnel at the plant and to keep all of the assets and infrastructure in good working condition.


  • To review what are the different types of power plants and how they work
  • To identify different types of electrical assets in a power plant
  • To learn maintenance strategies for different electrical assets in a power plant
  • To create a power plant maintenance plan
  • To present and discuss the created power plant maintenance plan
