This training seminar is split in two modules:

MODULE I - TAMCO High Voltage Switchgears

MODULE II - Transformer Operational Principles, Selection & Troubleshooting

Each modules is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone training course; however, delegates with will maximise their benefits by traking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a 2-week training course.
