Horizon Engineering Training School

The Horizon Engineering Training School is Northern Ireland’s first facility for High, Medium and Low Voltage systems training. For the first time, engineers with the necessary aptitude and qualifications can undertake training to further their electrical engineering careers by maintaining their competence right here in Belfast.

Operating HV and MV switchgear can be a potentially dangerous activity, and it’s vital that only competent and confident engineers carry out HV and MV switching operations.

At the Horizon Electrical Training School, we understand the importance of keeping HV and MV switchgear knowledge current through regular practice and development of skills in a safe environment.

Maintaining competence is a key requirement of the Electricity at Work Regulations, and we help organisations to support their engineers by providing appropriate initial training as well as refresher training at regular intervals. Above all, we instil the planning, professional discipline and routine associated with an HV switching operation to ensure engineers can carry out their work safely.

Our training academy comprises a fully equipped lecture room and a practical training area which features a typical industrial substation equipped with HV and LV Switchgear, mimic panel, key safe, key cabinet, lock out tag out station, control and protective equipment and life safety systems.

Access to the HV Substation, HV Switchroom, HV Transformer Room and LV Switchroom is via securely locked doors complete with all necessary identification and safety signage.

All our courses are structured on a modular basis. The content of each module is delivered through a combination of tutor presentations interspersed with tutor guided classroom written exercises, classroom discussions, tutor questions, delegate questions, sharing of delegate experiences and where appropriate tutor guided practical demonstrations and delegate participation in practical exercises.

Who should attend these courses? 

Delegates who are to be appointed under safety rules with responsibility for the operation, isolation and maintenance of mechanical and electrical plant.

Those who may be nominated as a Competent or Skilled Person within their organisation and need to demonstrate the appropriate level of experience of electrical systems and electrical principles and theory of safe operation.

We’re uniquely flexible with our training, and we can deliver the one-day Management Awareness and LV Competency Courses on client’s premises. Mindful of the pressures to release key personnel for extended periods of time from a busy industrial environment we can deliver the theoretical aspects of our HV and MV Power Systems courses on client’s premises on days 1 to 3, with the practical aspects of the courses delivered on days 4 and 5 at our training school.

For further details and discussion on the specific content of each course we would be more than happy to talk to you.
