Maintain energised HV distribution overhead electrical apparatus (stick)

This 20 day course will provide participants with the knowledge of the principles, requirements and procedures to maintain energised high voltage distribution overhead electrical apparatus using high voltage stick techniques and the skills to maintain energised high voltage distribution overhead electrical apparatus. The participant will also develop skills to work effectively within a cohesive team, to ensure the safety of all team members, and the community when undertaking high voltage live line work.

Note

To undertake this course, the client must provide the necessary plant and equipment, ie. elevated work platform.

If the course is delivered at a location other than Power Training Services WA, the client must contact our Technical Trainers to confirm further equipment that will need to be supplied.

PPC and PPE requirements

Some of the practical training for this course will take place in an operational area. You are required to have/provide Western Power approved PPC and PPE requirements for the practical work. Refer to the Western Power Work Practice Manual Sections 3.1-3.4 for these requirements.

Note: Power Training Services does not provide PPE, PPC and tools for training courses.

Standard PPC level 1 requirements apply. You will also need the following:

  • combination pole/EWP harness
  • general work gloves
  • safety glasses (minimum medium impact)
  • safety helmet
  • hand tools

Assessments

Assessments are included in this course. Participants will also be required to provide and record on-the-job evidence for work associated to this training.

Successful completion of this fifteen day training course will result in the awarding of a Statement of Attainment for UETTDRIS65A Contribute to coordinated HV live working.

A Statement of Attainment for UETTDRDP13A Maintain energised HV distribution overhead electrical apparatus (stick) will be awarded after satisfactory completion of on-the-job evidence and a final assessment. The final assessment must be completed within 3 to 12 months of completion of initial training.

Assessments are made against units of competency from the Certificate IV in ESI - Network Systems UET40412.
