COURSE OVERVIEW

Substation maintenance is a major part of any utility or plant maintenance program. Equipment failures usually result in significant
downtime because of long delays in equipment replacement. However, most of these failures can be detected and prevented.

This course is the hands-on component of the Substation: Component, Testing, and Interpretation (SCTI) virtual class; it is the last
step to certification. Labs have been designed to help the technician perform the needed tests to locate weak or faulty components in
the substation system, to analyze and interpret results, to perform measurements and adjustments, and to identify key lubricating
components, while complying with manufacturers', NETA and IEEE standards.

The course is designed to aid skilled qualified substation maintenance technicians to perform the required maintenance and testing
of equipment in industrial and utility substations.
