1. OVERVIEW:

For a person to become accredited as ‘authorised’ to do HV/MV switching, they need to do the HV / MV switching theoretical course which will be made up of modules and homework done in 3 days-this will constitute 40 hours out of the 80 hours

1. The first section 40 hours is of learning in class environment and doing a theoretical examination and receiving a certificate after being found competent with an 80% pass mark for all exams.

2. Students then go back to work and start populating a portfolio of evidence (POE). With this document they will have to prove what experience with HV/MV they have had (RPL). They will need to get the RPL verified by their respective engineers, supervisors or instructors.

This must be done in as short a time as possible, once the theory is completed – usually within 2-3 months.

3. The second 40 hours will be made up of doing practicals with a person who will verify this through use of the portfolio of evidence (POE).

4. Recognition for prior learning is applied to persons who have previously done operating. (portfolio of evidence)

When they have the required experience for their job description, and using the POE, they may request an accredited assessor to do a practical test with them after which they may be declared competent or not yet competent. If declared competent they will then get their certificate of authorisation
