Get the Protective Relay Training You Should Have Had On Day 1

Learn the fundamentals behind hassle-free relay testing, on your schedule.

Relay testing can be frustrating!

You're often thrown into unfamiliar situations, and you’re expected to know exactly what to do:

  • Even when you’re testing a new relay or configuration...
  • Even when the manufacturer’s manual is confusing...
  • Even when you haven’t been properly trained...

But what if you could avoid all of that, learn to navigate almost any testing scenario, and become a true relay testing expert?

Imagine having the knowledge, skills, and confidence of a relay testing craftsman

On a typical job, you would...

  • Gather up the materials you need, create a well-designed test plan that is perfect for the relay you're working with to prove it will trip when it is supposed to.
  • Sit down; hook up all the leads; turn on the test set, relay, and laptop; and start testing. No back-tracking, jury-rigging, or flipping back through manuals and notes, trying to get the relay to operate.
  • Run your tests and record your results: all of the boxes checked, all of the correct information. Exactly what your boss or client is looking for.

Sound out of reach?

A relay tester is happy after taking a protective relay training class

Our online protective relay training material is designed to help you do just that.

Get the Mentor You Need to Become a Relay Testing Craftsman

a protective relay training expert

My name is Chris Werstiuk.  I'm an engineer, power system electrician, electrical technologist, and instructor who's spent the last 20 years learning the craft of relay testing through trial and error in nuclear power plants, commercial buildings, and almost everything in between.

I literally wrote the book on relay testing (The Relay Testing Handbook), and I'm here to be the relay testing mentor you should have had from the start.

I'll help you cut the learning curve, so you don't have to spend the years and thousands of hours of testing time I spent learning how to test relays effectively.

"Chris has an incredible amount of knowledge and experience which he shares as he teaches the theory and practical methods of relay testing. These experiences are so valuable whether you are new or an experienced veteran of relay testing..."

Introducing Our Protective Relay Training Services
Online Seminars and Courses

Dig deep into the basics that every relay tester should know with:

Online Seminars

Have you ever just wanted to watch someone successfully test a relay to see how it is supposed to come together?

You can watch over my shoulder in our online seminars as I test a relay and explain every detail.  Each seminar includes:

  • High-quality video presentations, describing different testing methods
  • Pros and cons for each test method
  • Step-by-step instructions, using a variety of relays and test-sets
  • Ask your questions, and get your answers from instructors or fellow students in our comment sections for each topic

Online Training Courses

Would you like to attend a protective relay training course, but can't find the time or a location near you?

Our online courses follow a traditional training format. Each online course includes:

  • High-quality video presentations introducing you to theory behind the topic to help you understand how it works
  • Real-world examples that show you how to apply the theory 
  • Interactive exercises and quizzes that simulate the most realistic situations possible to help you learn by doing
  • A comment section where you can ask your questions and get your answers from instructors or fellow students

All of our protective relay training options are eligible for NETA Continuing Technical Development Credits (CTDs).

Why Online Protective Relay Training?

Nothing beats hands-on learning from an engaging instructor who gives you the information you need, and lets you practice in a safe environment. 

But in-person protective relay training isn't for the faint of budget.

  • The course fees can run thousands of dollars
  • Travel expenses can double the training costs
  • Then there's the time lost travelling to and from the class while work backs up at office
  • Then you have to play catch up when you return to the office

 No wonder your boss hasn't sent you to get trained yet...

Most of the time it's just not worth it for a few days of theory and death by PowerPoint.

Our online protective relay training options, on the other hand, are built around practical applications (not PowerPoint), don't require any travel, and are 10 times more affordable than an in-person class.

Nothing to book. No huge expenses to get approved. Just register, hit "play", and you're on your way to effective relay testing. Plus, you get to:

  • Replay the videos as many times as you want to truly understand the material
  • 24/7 access to the videos to fit your schedule and get answers when you need them
  • Learn at your own pace
  • Follow the lesson plan, or jump around to get the information you need right away

What do students think about our online training courses?

"I picked your courses because they looked interesting and they were inexpensive. I was not disappointed. I found them very informative and quite easy to follow. I would recommend these courses to anyone needing continuing education or just wanting to learn more about relays. I learned a lot and look forward to taking more classes from Valence..."

Larry Lockwood
Senior Technician

"A different perspective on relay testing, especially since most testing companies use automated testing. It helps you better understand the operation of the relays and how the results were obtained. Not just button pushing..."

Erik Lemke
Senior Field Engineer

"If you are in relay P&C, you need this course for success in your field."

The Three-Phase Electric Power System Course

"Great fundamental courses, preparing your for any relay testing out there."

Course 1-1: The Three-Phase Electric Power System (4 NETA CTDs)

Protective relays constantly look at the three-phase electric power system and try to decide whether the system is normal or under fault conditions. A relay tester who understands the three-phase electrical system can build highly efficient test plans that test the entire relay (not just the individual pieces of it) to make sure it actually operates when it’s supposed to.

In this course, you'll get an introduction to electrical fundamentals and three-phase electrical power systems, including:

  • How electricity is created
  • How to count cycles and how frequency and cycles are related
  • How to convert from cycles to seconds and back again
  • What three-phase electrical systems are, and how to change from one to another

"I learned a lot from this course. Having no relay testing experience, I was grateful the real world examples were shown. I will definitely continue with this program, as they become available."

The Three-Phase Electric Power System Course

"Excellent refresher for someone in the field who doesn't deal with phasors and/or frequency/time/cycle conversions very often."
