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

Learn how to perform hassle-free relay testing, on your schedule.


Relay testing can be frustrating!

You're thrown into unfamiliar situations and are expected to know 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 had any protective relay training...

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 to create a test plan for any relay that proves that 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?


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

The Mentor You Need to Become a Relay Testing Craftsman


My name is Chris Werstiuk.  I'm a professional engineer, power system electrician, electrical engineering technologist, and instructor who's spent the last 25 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. Not only can you watch me test different relays from start to finish with different test-sets, you can ask me questions throughout the course and I'll answer them.

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..."

Rowan Dunbar

Independent Consultant

"Chris is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He has seen almost every mistake that can be made in the protection and control game. This course will provide you with a great step-by-step guide to testing. Not only will you have a good guide, but you will understand WHY you are doing that step."

Introducing Our Protective Relay Training

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 that describe different testing methods
  • Pros and cons for each testing method
  • Step-by-step instructions, using a variety of relays and test-sets
  • A comment section where you can ask your questions and get
    your answers from instructors or fellow students

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 pre-approved 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 the office
  • Then you have to play catch up when you return to the office

No wonder you haven't been sent you to get trained yet...


Most of the time, in-person training is just not worth the days of 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
  • Access the videos 24/7/365 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

You Might Be Thinking: "Oh No! Not Another Useless Webinar or Draining Zoom Class!"

We get it...the last few years have been tough. But the reality is that any online training you attended in the last couple of years was probably a desperate attempt to turn an in-person sales presentation into an "informational webinar," or turn an in-person training class into an online course. Unfortunately, it takes a LOT of time to create a proper online training program. In fact, real online training professionals have found that it should take 49 to 716 hours of creation time for every hour of published content. Those online training classes from other companies probably didn’t invest that much time and effort, did they?

Our online training programs are different because we designed them to be online from the beginning. We kept track of our time for this seminar and I was stunned to find out that for every hour of content that you see, we have spent 60+ man-hours researching, preparing, recording, editing, and publishing the best content we can produce. We felt the same pain you have over the last couple of years and tried to make sure we didn't fall into the same traps that you've experienced. We spent a lot of time:

  • Creating videos that are comprehensive and short. Our online seminar videos are usually less than 15 minutes long.
  • Living up to our motto, "Show Don't Tell!" to make the training as realistic as possible. You watch me actually test different relays in front of you with different test-sets and settings.
  • Creating a system that allows you to control the pace. You can re-watch the material as often as you wish or skip ahead if you already know the material.  You can even slow the videos down or speed them up to match your speed.

We think our online programs are not only the best relay training on the market, but also the best bang for the buck that you can find anywhere. However, if you don’t agree, our 100% satisfaction guarantee ensures that if you don't think the courses are right for you, we will give you a 100% refund. If you don't believe me...

What Do Other Relay Testers Say About Our Online Training Programs?

"I think the cost of this training was the best money I ever spent for continuing education training. The information passed on was exactly the knowledge I needed to refresh and expand. This training captured my full attention. I thoroughly enjoyed it."

Forest Vallad

NETA 4 test Technician

"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

"I would definitely get this online training. Its broken down to the basics and takes you through a step by step process. You cant go wrong with this. It is worth every penny...

Most of the test sets does the work for you with a push of a button. With this online course you understand what is going on and how to interpret results. I really like this course.

The videos and presentations on this course have been very helpful and given me a better edge on what is going on in the relay testing industry."


How to Test Protective Relays Online Seminar

"Most of the ‘relay’ problems I have faced were actually human errors instead of equipment errors. Most relay tests would not catch these errors. Examples: Wrong CT/PT ratios, wrong polarity.

This course helped show how testing a relay can also catch human errors in the installation of equipment or wiring and the programming.

This course is unlike any I have ever seen. I have paid ten times the cost to attend training in person, and the training usually covers mostly theory and standards. This course actually shows you how to do real-world relay testing."
