Basic switching authorisation (110 kV)

Target audience

qualified electricians in the fields of the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy.


Degree in electrical engineering


in addition to an education on technical expertise, the basic training course also includes training to obtain the required competencies for analysis, selection of appropriate methods and communication with a focus on practice and operations. After succesfully passing the exam, the participant is granted a certificate of switching authorisation.


In basic training, the skills required for analysis, method selection and communication are trained practical and action-oriented to the provision of technial expertise. The focus will be, inter alia, the principles for secure network operation, to implement the 5 safety rules for preparing and securing the unstressed condition and use of language switching. The successfully tested is certified with the receipt of the basic switching authorization.

Seminar lectures, individual and group exercises with and without the Grid Simulator (the GridLab Simulator provides a safe condition to the participant when planning and implementing switching operations), exam
