High Voltage and Electrical Safety (Competency Level 2)

Hands-on, operational competency high voltage training for ROV operators


2 day High Voltage and Electrical Safety (Competency Level 2): £780

Delivered by experienced instructors who have a wealth of offshore experience to pass on, the training takes place in a dedicated, industry-specific learning environment.

Course Overview

Our facilities include Mechanical and Electrical workshops with classrooms alongside, a work class ROV simulator, and a fully operational work class ROV system, allowing a complete work class ROV isolation procedure to be followed. This first-hand, practical experience of specialised high voltage processes and practices, carried out in an industrial environment, helps to make you an effective and competent member of an ROV team in your offshore career.

This course has been developed in accordance with UK and international standards of electrical safety compliance*.  It also meets and extends on the IMCA Guidelines as set out in C 010 High Voltage Training, Stage 1 Introduction to Electrical Safety and IMCA R 005 High Voltage Equipment: Safety Procedures for Working on ROVs.

All of the ROV courses at The Underwater Centre have been developed working closely with industry: this highly relevant training, delivered at a unique subsea location by friendly and qualified staff, aims to make you more employable by helping to ensure you are safe, trained and competent as an ROV pilot technician.


*Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, HSE – HS (G) 85 Electricity at Work – Safe Working Practices, HSE – HSE 25 – Memorandum of Guidance on the Electricity at Work Regulations, NORSOK, NR10.

Key Outcomes:

By participating in the following, you will gain knowledge of what is required by industry to successfully isolate the Low Voltage / High Voltage Work Class High Voltage System:

  • Appreciate the underlying relevant legislation and guidelines as they are applied to ROV operations;
  • Be aware of how High Voltage is addressed in the ROV industry;
  • Appreciate the Work Class High Voltage Power Distribution system and their safe guards. Students will experience an invaluable guided tour of a real working ‘Work Class ROV power distribution system’ to facilitate their understanding. This will also serve as a basis for the practical assessment on day two;
  • Understand safe working practices;
  • Gain a realisation of the risk and injuries involved in High Voltage Systems;
  • Understand what a hazardous area is and how it affects ROV operations.

On completion of this module, students will be able to apply practically what they have learnt, from start to finish, on a full LV/HV isolation on a working ROV system, thus connecting with relevant real-life industry needs.

This vital safety training is included in our seven-week Premium ROV Course, or is available as a standalone 2-day module.
