This knowledge will allow the applicant to apply standard NETA or IEEE testing practices to validate the integrity of electrical equipment. Testing will involve both low and medium voltage equipment and in minimal applications involving high voltage. The applicant must be familiar with completing the following tests:
- Insulation resistance testing (Megger)
- High potential testing (Hi-Pot)
- Digital low resistance testing (DLRO)
- Primary or secondary injection
- Polarization index test (PI)
- Dissipation factor test
- Transformer Saturation testing
- Battery discharge testing
- Auto Transfer scheme testing
- Generator load acceptance and rejection testing
- Unloaded and loaded operational tests
- Lumens testing
- Protection relay testing
- Vacuum breaker testing
- Technical Diploma or Degree from recognized Institution
- Journeyman apprenticeship completed/ and Interprovincial certification
- Minimum 3 Years’ experience in testing or maintenance
- Problem solving: Applicants need to have the aptitude to troubleshoot problems in a methodical manner to identify the issues.
- Logic: Applicants need to be able to read electrical blueprints and prove all control through testing in systematic manner.
- Adaptable: Working in tight quarter with wires, using hand tools and handling small components requires manual dexterity and good color visibility.
- Observation: Applicants need to review electrical installations and observe any violations to the Canadian Electrical Code.
- Integrity: Applicants must be willing to work within their abilities and defer to assistance in order to maintain quality and integrity.
