Good relay testers need a solid foundation. Graduates from this Protective Relay Testing Fundamentals Class will understand, and be able to test, the most common functions enabled on any feeder relay such as:
You may think that you, or your team, have been testing relays for a while and will get more benefits from the advanced class, but most relay testers who skipped this class wished they would have started here.
Relay testers are often thrown into the fire with little-to-no training. They figure out a test procedure that works for them and share that knowledge with their colleagues and/or the next generation of relay testers. These test procedures may get the passes you need for your test sheets, but most of the test plans we’ve seen during our years of relay training have weaknesses that fail to find the most common problems that occur in modern relays. In fact, we often find problems with relay settings that are in-service and “tested” at our student’s facilities. We encourage you to honestly answer the questions in the “Who should take this class?” section to see if you are ready to skip this class.
Every class we offer is tailored to the students in the room, which means we don’t have a constant stream of PowerPoint presentations and pre-canned exercises! Every class is unique. You are guaranteed to come away from this class with more knowledge and skills to become a better relay tester. You can read some reviews of previous classes by clicking the Reviews tab above.
We recommend that all relay technicians take the Protective Relay Testing Fundamentals Class to ensure that they have a solid foundation before attending any of the other classes. We don’t just discuss the mechanics of the topics listed above; we will review all of the fundamentals that every relay tester should know.
If you can’t confidently answer the questions in the quiz below and apply them to your next relay testing project, you should take this class:

Class at your location ranges from $5,000 to $7,500 USD, depending on the number of workstations required.
The tuition for regional classes range from $1,250.00 to $1,850 USD, depending on your test-set requirements and includes all class materials and lab relays.
We do not charge tax on training classes.
Students are responsible for all travel, accommodation, and meal expenses.
All of our classes are organized by workstations that include:
Some students have a test-set and prefer to work alone. We offer the “I’m bringing a test-set for my personal use” price option for those students. Their price is higher because we have a limited number of workstations and won’t be able to fill the class to capacity if no-one shares.
Some students have a test-set and are willing to share. We offer the “I’m bringing a test-set that I’m willing to share” price option for those students. Their price is lower because we will be able to enroll more students with people who pick this option.
Some companies want to send two students with a test-set to share a workstation. We offer the “Two students sharing a test-set” price for them.
Students who can’t bring their own test-set should choose the “I don’t have a test-set” option. We’ll arrange the class so that you can share a workstation with another student using the same brand of test equipment. Their price is higher to make the “bring a test-set and share” option more attractive.
We will look at all of the student enrollments and contact each of you to confirm your selections before we finalize the class. Feel free to contact us if you have a special situation.
You can cancel with no penalty up to 60 days before the class start date. Substitutions may be made at no charge. We can work with you to find a substitution, if you require one.
Students should treat this class as an actual relay testing job and bring all of the equipment they would normally use on the job, including:
We can supply some of these items upon request, but we strongly recommend that you bring the equipment you will use in the real world to be sure that you can apply what you learn with us during your day-to-day activities. We also recommend bringing example drawings and relay settings to use in class.
We reserve the right to cancel or change any class before an official confirmation notice is sent to you. Do not make any fully non-refundable travel arrangements until you receive a confirmation from us, usually 4 weeks from the first day of class.
