Where better to complete your training than at NMCI, Europe’s leading maritime college. With a $100 million dollar state of the art facility located only 1 mile from Cork Harbour,and with great connectivity to Europe, NMCI Services should be your first port of call.

And lest we forget to mention that there is no VAT on training in Ireland so we should definitely be top of mind for all your training needs. If you are still unsure then why not look at some testimonials from delegates who completed training with us here.

So, to cut a long story short we are delighted to announce that NMCI Services are offering a scheduled High Voltage (Management) Training Course, May 25th – 29th.


High Voltage Management Course

As the High Voltage (Management) course is a commercial course, it is available to book online at the following link: High Voltage (M). Once you have registered and paid online you will appear on the course participants list. Unfortunately, we cannot accept provisional course booking requests as there are limited places available. The course cost is €1,200 per delegate.

This course is suitable for marine engineering officers, electrical or electro-technical officers, engineer surveyors and marine superintendents. The training gives seafarers the essential education and training in high voltage (HV) installations to meet the Knowledge, Understanding and Proficiency requirements as set out in STCW 2010 Tables A-III/2 and A-III/6 for electrical, electronic and control systems at the management level.


Course Content

The course consists of a blend of classroom and practical training using dedicated facilities to enable students to achieve the following training outcomes:

  • Management of HV operations on board a ship, including familiarisation with HV safety rules, procedures and legislation, knowledge of electrical hazards, and completion of safety records and documentation.
  • Understanding the HV system and the maintenance of distribution capability, including operational and safety features, function of protection devices, HV switch room arrangements, analysing the protection of marine distribution systems  and practical maintenance.
  • Identification of faults within an HV system and reconfiguration of the system to maintain electrical supply, including identification of fault levels and conditions, and compiling and implementing a switching plan to isolate a high voltage distribution fault


The course will commence at 9am Monday May 18th and to ensure a timely start we kindly request all delegates to report to reception no later than 08.45am.

Great news to report that NMCI Sailing Club successfully secured 3rd in France! As the only Irish team to compete in the “Hydro’s Cup” in Le Havre, Normandy, they certainly flew the Irish flag in style, with a top class performance.
