Level I Training

An Introduction to Partial Discharge (PD) Testing 

Book Level I and II togetherWe accept all major credit cards.     
A one-day course designed for anyone new to PD, has a general interest or  has a requirement to learn the basics. This includes engineers and managers involved in asset management of MV/HV/EHV networks who are new to partial discharge (PD) and are assessing condition monitoring (CM) technologies.
The course includes four technical seminars, practical HV laboratory PD testing and a practical session covering the use of the PDS Insight™, World's First OLPD Handheld Test Unit with OLPD Manager™ – Asset Management Application for Android™ to detect sources of PD activity in switchgear and in air. Upon completion of the course, the trainees are expected to have a solid background in PD test and monitoring techniques and methodology and have an understanding on how this can be used to support condition-based maintenance (CBM). This will be tested in the Level I Exam. 
Those with HVPD Level I certification or some previous experience with PD can progress to Level II
