Target audience

Electricians, technicians and engineers who are responsible for electrical testing using various styles of metering equipment.

Learning objective

At the completion of this course, students will learn fundamentals of basic electrical testing required for startup, commissioning and preventive maintenance.


Preventative maintenance, startup and commissioning activities require basic electrical tests to be performed to ensure the equipment is in a operable state throughout its life.

A combination of various major manufacturers’ test sets are used to perform practical classwork. Testing will be performed on actual equipment providing the student an easier transition from the classroom to the job.

Basic Testing includes:

  • Behavior of insulation systems
  • Insulation resistance tests
  • Dielectric tests
  • AC withstand tests
  • Vacuum bottle integrity tests
  • Low resistance tests
  • Secondary injection tests
