It has been determined that over 70 per cent of all electrical problems in industrial, commercial and institutional power systems are due to poor grounding and wiring errors. Without proper grounding, sensitive electronic equipment is subjected to destruction of data, erratic equipment operation, and catastrophic damage. This electrical grounding seminar will give participants a comprehensive understanding of practical applications of proper grounding and wiring practices. Increase Your Knowledge

  • Focus on specific electrical grounding problems and consequences relating to fires, safety of personnel, and damage to equipment
  • Participate in discussion of electrical grounding problems and how to overcome or avoid them
  • Gain a firm foundation of knowledge for your next project involving electrical grounding
  • Develop your knowledge of theory and practice


This electrical grounding course is a must for electrical engineers, design engineers, electrical engineering managers, project managers, power quality specialists, maintenance managers, consultants and technologists responsible for the design, construction, installation, inspection, operation, or maintenance of electrical systems, designers, contractors, and electrical technicians, inspectors, safety personnel and other employees responsible for the operation and maintenance of electrical grounding systems in a commercial, industrial, institutional or utility setting.
