Course programme


This is an advanced training programme that requires a good foundation of electrical knowledge and experience of high voltage switching.

Outline Contents

  • Marine/offshore statutory electrical requirements
  • Philosophy of high voltage distribution
  • Operational and safety features of switchgear
  • Operational Procedures
  • Marine / offshore high voltage safety rules
  • Basic fault calculations
  • Marine / offshore application of electrical protection
  • Principles of power management systems
  • Outline of electrical testing
  • Synchronisation
  • Electrical maintenance
  • Case studies
  • Automatic voltage regulation
  • Practical exercises (2-switching/ safety documents/ synchronisation)
  • Course review

This course is more advanced course than the MAR4 course and includes a wider range of technical aspects with less emphasis on switching operations.


Candidates who successfully complete the theoretical and practical competence assessments will receive a Faraday 'Competence' certificate, candidates who fail or do not wish to undertake the competence assessments will receive a Faraday 'Attendance' certificate.
