At the Operational Level:

        The hazards associated with high voltage systems;

        The functional, operational and safety requirements for a marine high voltage system;

        Basic arrangement of high voltage systems and their protective devices;

        Safety procedures related to high voltage systems; and

        Immediate actions to be taken under fault conditions.

At the Management Level:

        The functional, operational and safety requirements for a marine high voltage system;

        Assignment of suitably qualified personnel to carry-out maintenance and repair of high voltage switchgear of various types;

        Taking remedial action necessary during faults in a high voltage system;

        Producing a switching strategy for isolating components of a high voltage system;

        Selecting suitable apparatus for isolation and testing of high voltage equipment;

        Carrying out a switching and isolation procedure on a marine high voltage system, complete with safety documentation; and

        Performing Insulation Resistance (IR) and Polarization Index (PI) tests on high voltage equipment.
