Course Description


This GLOMACS Start-up, Commissioning and Testing of Electrical Systems training seminar has been designed to provide a clear and perfect understanding of principles of commissioning and electrical installation.

Equipment readiness for a commercial service is proven by testing all its functions under different conditions. ‘Do not believe, until it is proven’ is the key to successful testing and satisfactory operation of electric systems. Equipment is finally proven when it is energized and tested on load during the start-up (first energisation).

Errors missed in previous stages of the project are discovered in the commissioning. During testing, the engineers are exposed to high and low voltages and currents. To prevent injuries and damages, they must be trained to fully understand the processes and plan all steps of the commissioning.

This GLOMACS training seminar will highlight:

  • Commissioning planning, process and procedures
  • Commissioning inspections
  • Commissioning /maintenance tests
  • Start-up or first energisation
  • The safety aspect of commissioning


This GLOMACS training seminar covers all aspects of testing in electrical systems, performed during construction or maintenance. It considers the practical understanding of a variety of tests and prescribes how to plan and implement them carefully. The final stage is the start-up or first energisation when equipment is connected to the system under load conditions.  

At the end of this GLOMACS training seminar, participants will learn to:

  • Understand the testing process
  • Plan and prepare for testing
  • Plan and carry out inspections
  • Perform primary and secondary injections
  • Plan the first energisation
  • Perform phasing tests
  • Consider safety aspects during testing

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Electrical Engineering training will ensure that participants will receive thorough training on the subjects covered by the seminar outline, with the instructor utilising a variety of proven adult learning teaching and facilitation techniques. Seminar methodology will include audio and video PowerPoint presentation.

The course is designed to have an interactive format to maximize delegate participation. Questions and answers sessions are encouraged throughout the course. The case studies are tailored to the attendees' needs and various examples from practice will be discussed in problem-solving workshop sessions.

Organisational Impact

Upon completion of the GLOMACS course, the organizational impact would be:

  • Train staff to be able to carry out testing and commissioning
  • Make the participants aware of equipment testing either during project construction or maintenance
  • The course will allow delegates to interact and gain knowledge from shared experience
  • The staff will understand the concept of the equipment testing and appreciate its importance in the operation and maintenance of an electrical power system
  • Awareness of safety during testing and commissioning

Personal Impact

On successful completion of this GLOMACS seminar delegate will be able to understand:

  • Learn the testing process
  • Understand a step by step approach of the commissioning
  • Have a comprehensive understanding of testing of HV and LV equipment
  • Gain knowledge of the first energisation
  • Understand the safety aspects of commissioning & testing


This GLOMACS training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Testing Engineers / Technicians
  • Maintenance Engineers / Technicians
  • Managers of Engineering departments
  • Consulting Engineers / Technicians
  • Project Engineers
  • Safety Professionals
  • Others who want a solid preparation in testing & commissioning
