In your quest to find a protective relay training course that meets your needs, you’ve probably experienced at least one of the following problems:
Valence Electrical Training Services has shown its commitment to the high-voltage electrical testing industry with The Relay Testing Handbook series, TechTalk blog, YouTube video series, and conference presentations.We have used our extensive training experience to create innovative and engaging training materials at our electrical training center to help you stay in the top of your field. All of our course materials include these principles:
Our goal is to help you become a better relay tester and a true craftsman!Typical relay testers have too much work, too little time, and very little help. We have created relay testing training material in a few different formats at our electrical training center so that you can choose the training method that works best for your needs and schedule:
The Relay Testing Handbook series started as a 45 minute paper at a conference and has turned into over 700 pages of relay testing content written specifically for relay testers. Every relay testing situation is different, so we created multiple versions of The Relay Testing Handbook to meet your specific needs:
I have just bought your protection relay testing set of books about a few weeks ago and I just wanted to say that I’m very impressed with it. I have been commissioning power systems for a few years and I wish I had found your books a while ago.

I have been in electrical testing for the past 15 years and have worked for NETA shops and utilities. The booket is excellent for a beginner as well as a seasoned test technician. I purchased this for a look at another’s perspective on end to end relay testing. Included are test plans, connections, procedures and testing philosophies. The user will find an overview of nearly all of the popular protection strategies as well as a very helpful overview chart. I have been so impressed with the booklet that I will purchase the expansive relay manual. Bravo Mr. Werstiuk, (author), you have accomplished in a few pages the equivalent of a semester of test school.

We have sold over 6,500 copies of our electrical testing handbooks to electrical testers, utilities, organizations, and institutions including:
I work for a testing company and I always wanted to get better with relays but found it difficult to learn more on site since we don’t usually have much time to play around. Our company owns Omicron and Doble test sets and was able to borrow them over the week ends. I would grab an SEL relay and follow you step by step and learned a lot that way. I practiced a lot doing manual pick up and timing test (without changing settings) to get a good foundation and now slowly getting into dynamic testing. I also purchased your Relay testing handbook and find it very useful on site, I keep the soft copy on my laptop so I can refer to it very easily. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to get better at testing relays. Looking forward to more videos from Valence. Keep up the good work
I found this course to be very useful in understanding the fundamentals of three phase power systems. It was extremely easy to follow along. Very clear, cadenced rhythm with the video narration allowed me to understand without having to backtrack. The course material would be suitable for technicians or students looking to get a grasp on three-phase power systems and converting between cycles and seconds; a must have for any relay technician. I appreciated the real world examples and exercises, which will help me when I come across these specifics problems in the microprocessor based world of protection relays. Overall I highly recommend this course!
Hands-on relay training classes where our instructors sit down with small groups to discuss the theory and application of relay testing for the most effective relay training classes possible. Your organization can bring one of our instructors to you.
A different perspective on relay testing, especially since most testing companies use automated testing. It helps better understand the operation of the relays and how the results were obtained. Not just button pushing……..
If you test relays, this class is a must. I lacked experience with generator relays and the combination of hands on testing and theoretical knowledge about the elements in test created a seamless transition from the classroom to the field. Outstanding professor with many ways to explain the same thing. I look forward to future classes!
We have trained over 200 students from a wide range of backgrounds from utilities, organizations, and institutions including:
We are constantly seeking new ideas, building alliances and strategic partnerships, and developing new content as electrical systems continue to evolve.
