About The Medium Voltage Circuit Breaker Maintenance Training Course
No one likes a power system failure, especially when it's caused by poor maintenance. Circuit breakers are a critical component in any power system and ensuring that they operate reliably helps you avoid unnecessary down time and expenses that result from unplanned outages. Poorly maintained circuit breakers can fail to operate properly when needed and the results can be catastrophic to both equipment and employees. This training course will help you ensure that your medium-voltage breakers are being maintained for maximum reliability and service life.
Who Should Attend This Training?
Electricians, electrical technicians, supervisors and others who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of medium-voltage air and vacuum circuit breakers. Field service engineers and salespersons who need a better understanding of circuit breaker testing are encouraged to attend.
