The Right Trainer Makes A World Of A Difference

Our careers require us to push for progress and keep up with the times, but we understand it’s not always easy. Here at Volt Edge, we strive to make your training experience with us personal and of quality.

Who can study HV Switching

Are you a qualified Electrician or electrical worker looking to upskill and further your career? Or maybe your employer needs you to upskill to perform more jobs?

The High Voltage (HV) Switching course is nationally accredited and covers the legislation, theory and practical requirements to perform the role of a High Voltage Switching Operator.

High Voltage Switching is a popular skill set among electrical workers and it is a valuable certificate to have when looking at upskilling or performing certain work. Because it is such a popular field among electricians, engineers and other electrical workers, there are a number of training providers, such as Volt Edge, which deliver specialised HV Switching training.

Because legislation and training competencies change over time, it can be difficult for electrical workers to know the current eligibility requirements to complete HV Switching courses and other accredited courses.


While there are no formal prerequisite units for this course, the course is designed for students who would like to become a High Voltage Switching Operator and require formal training to allow them to write switching sheets and perform switching operations.

It will suit you if you are (but not limited to);

  • An electrical worker
  • A Technician
  • An Engineer involved with maintaining high voltage electrical equipment
  • Non electrical personnel

Who can study HV Switching

So while there aren’t any restrictions on who can study the course, most students will generally have some electrical background and understanding of High Voltage work.

HV Switching Refresher

If you are looking to complete a HV Switching Refresher course, this is a 2 day accredited course designed for students with some High Voltage (HV) experience, but require the formal training to allow them to write switching sheets and perform switching operations.

To be eligible to complete the refresher, students must hold the units of competency from a High Voltage Switching course from an Australian Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
