Training and assessment in the methods of distribution fitting, construction and maintenance, courses are designed to give apprentices a sound working knowledge of a wide variety of Fitting work and obtain knowledge of safe working practices and the practical skills and techniques to enable them to become valuable members of the workforce
Fitter formal training and assessment is supported by technical certificate, diploma and on site experience to gain a well-rounded experience.
EHV GIS/GIB installation require a high standard of assembly skills, the EHV fitting apprenticeship includes cutting edge high voltage gas insulated bus section assemble as well as AIS apparatus assembly, panel wiring and auxiliary apparatus construction.
Air insulated system component construction includes steel work construction and erection of switchgear used at EHV voltages.
Earthing installation using braising/ exothermic welding skills, concrete anchor installation, multi-core wiring and containment construction are all key aspect of providing fitter skills to quickly contribute to site skills
Skills required connecting sections of Gas insulated bus sections and interconnections are practices to enable easy integration of fitters in to Fitting teams constructing large scale GIS installations.
Training delivers good fitting practice skills, and follow manufactures installation instructions and guidance where provided.
