Level III Training

HVPD-Accredited OLPD Test Engineer Course

This is a bespoke 5-day, OLPD Test Engineer training course for those test engineers pursuing expert OLPD test skills and knowledge by being trained in the field by an HVPD Engineer. These training courses are carried out as standard for the engineers and test technicians of client's who purchase our HVPD Kronos® Spot Tester or HVPD Longshot™ Diagnostic OLPD test technology.
The course delivers advanced theoretical and practical training modules in Day 1 that cover using HVPD's test and monitoring equipment, performing data analysis and reporting on test results using the automated software. The course is tailored to cover the client's requirements for a specific application and is carried out at a client's site. Days 2, 3 and 4 are then spent carrying out OLPD testing and training on the client's MV/HV/EHV assets. Day 5 is then spent reviewing the data collected and preparing reports. The aim of the course is to prepare the attendees to conduct unassisted on‑site OLPD testing and data acquisition safely and efficiently.
