It is recommended that the participants hold at least a Bachelor of Engineering degree.
A relatively large number of cables are buried underground. This means many people will be involved with (underground) power cables professionally, and that associated knowledge is a key requirement. This basic course, Power Cables in General, covers all the relevant aspects relating to power cables – not always down to a detailed level (specialized courses are available for this purpose), but especially in a related context. This means the course provides a good overview of all the elements that are of interest, as well as the options available for approaching or solving certain problems. The textbook will also be a useful reference tool.
This course is part of a series of five on underground power cables. Supplementary to this general three-day course, four in-depth two- and three-day courses have been developed, providing more detailed information on the following topics:
- Ageing, quality assurance, testing, diagnostics and failures of power cables
- Asset management, maintenance and remaining life of power cables
For more information and for registration, please refer to the brochure and the registration form.
The Power cables in general course is also available in Dutch. Please click here for more information.
On request, Energy Academy can also provide an in-house training course in English or Dutch (content, location and duration of the course can be adapted to the client’s wishes). Please contact us for more information.

The Power Cables in General course is held by real experts with long experience and good teaching skills. I liked very much the completeness of the course, from theoretical basics to installation and maintenance/testing. In addition, the course was enriched by laboratory visits"
