The curriculum includes subjects of design and operation of electrical equipment, questions about possible malfunctions and damage to electrical systems, the main directions of the organization and work to reduce commercial losses of electricity.

During the lessons electricians train procedures for measuring the loop “phase-zero”, exploring the principle of operation of equipment, recently appeared in the utilities industry, i.e. voltage boosters, reclosers, pole mounted substations and installation, operation and maintenance of overhead lines with self-supporting insulated conductors.

Significant place in the training program is given to the protection, safety features at maintenance and repair of electrical networks and fire prevention measures in the DEN. The training session is finalized with the software for power engineers “Centurion”.
