The course in Capenhurst, hosted and run by EA Technology, was designed to give the team an in-depth view into basic Protection Engineering.
It could provide a starting point for those who might be considering a move into that area.
“I enjoyed the course,” said Declan Maunsell, Senior Authorised Project Engineer for RJ Power Networks. “The content was relative to what we do. It was well-delivered and the tutors were definitely knowledgeable.”
With a shortage of Protection Engineers in the electrical industry, the training could provide a valuable career boost for those who attended.
Now those team members can move onto the Power System Protection 1 course to continue their development.
A spokesperson for RJ Power Group said: “We think it is important to have our work force go on regular training as we find it keeps employees focused as well as motivated in their day to day tasks, but also motivated towards their personal career goals.
“We like to invest in people and their careers, we always strive to develop our employee’s careers by sending them on quality, specialist training to gain new skills and qualifications. We hold regular personal development meetings with each member of staff to find out what they would like to achieve in their professional career whilst working for RJ Power.
“These exercises are important to all staff at RJ Power, as it allows clear training paths to be set as well as personal goals by each individual staff member.”
