Undertake maintenance of 240 to 440 voltage alternating current electrical systems

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: December 2018


This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to perform establish, organise and implement a preventative and reactive maintenance program and capabilities on 240 to 440 voltage alternating current (AC) electrical systems on a vessel.

This unit applies to engine workers in the maritime industry working as a Marine Engine Driver Grade 1 Near Coastal on vessels up to 1500 kW.

WARNING: Relevant state/territory qualification requirements apply to persons carrying out installation, maintenance and/or repair of refrigeration equipment, especially with regard to preventing the escape of refrigerants into the atmosphere and to electrical work.
