On-Demand Level 1 & 2 Partial Discharge (PD) Training

Online platform

Pricing TBC

If you or your team are responsible for MV and HV electrical assets, knowledge of PD condition monitoring can help you avoid unplanned outages on your network resulting from electrical insulation failure.

Our Level 1 & 2 PD training courses cover the theoretical aspects of assessing insulation risk – giving you the knowledge you need to make maintenance planning decisions for your network.

The On-Demand feature will be available from 2024 (new date TBC).To get the most out of your training, our expert PD Engineers will be available to answer your training related questions during the LIVE Q&A sessions via the webinar platform. This is a great chance to interact and speak to our PD engineers.

Attending our training sessions will help you gain an understanding of how PD can cause insulation failure, leading to costly unplanned outages. Each course involves a moderated examination, certified by our qualified PD engineers.
