Welcome to Revo Certified basic overhead line asset inspection training course. This online component will be used as an introduction to a 2-day in-person course where we will provide more information, more detailed training, have more discussion, make sure you are comfortable with the content and why we have presented it in this way, and go through practical examples and tests. In-person training course bookings will re-open again once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted!
If you don’t want to do the full training and are only interested in specific modules, please refer to those specific courses. For certification in those specific modules, contact us to discuss options.
We recommend yearly refresher training to maintain certification, and hence the provided certificate is only valid for one year.
Please note that we can also provide group pricing, client-specific customisation, and training, and we can even build a course that is specific for your utility.
The slide handouts for each module can be downloaded from the first lesson in each module.
This online training covers the basics of condition inspection of overhead power lines, poles, streetlights, monopoles, and their attachments. This is a very practical topic, and we find a greater level of understanding is reached from the in-person training on this topic, but this package is designed to reduce the in-person training time and cost requirements.
It includes work associated with:
This course is designed to improve significantly on the Australian UETTDREL18 Certificate II course. It focusses on having the students reach a higher level of understanding as to what they are doing and why, and covers a wider range of inspection scenarios. There is a focus on how and why different defects occur and their criticality to public and worker safety and the ongoing reliability of the network.
We also introduce the full range of traditional and currently available NDT techniques, so the inspectors are aware of the pros and cons of each, which allows them to be more engaged in assessment and use of the techniques.
We created this course as there are no inspector training courses available that would stand up to expert scrutiny. All the recent court cases pointed fingers at inspectors that were trained in the RTO course in Australia, and we want to help limit these cases by up-skilling the inspector and empowering them. Even with the Australian Cert II being available, we are not seeing a significant take-up. After some investigations, we found this was due to;
We have elected to offer the course as a non-RTO training workshop as it allows us more flexibility to tailor for specific customers, but also to keep up with technology at a much faster rate than what the RTO program offers.
The in-person training part of this course will cover the following in more detail;
It will also involve a practical exam that must be satisfactorily completed to pass the course.
