Introduction to HV Earthing & Bonding
This course aims to help you take the first step on your journey to better understand Earthing, Bonding and Grounding.
As part of today’s requirements, a competent earthing design is an absolute pre-requisite to protect lives from the harmful effects of high-voltage which exist during a fault situation.
Due to recent developments in international and national standards, new methods of analysing and understanding have proven to be game-changers in the field of earthing, alongside new requirements for compliance. Therefore, the bar has now been raised. Demonstrating competence for Earthing (grounding) to de-risk your business is paramount for a safety-critical specialist component.
This course provides an awareness at high-level (intuitively) across the topic of earthing (grounding), high-voltage systems, systematically broken down into logical, easily absorbed sessions.
