    The course will be useful for managers, engineers/highly trained technicians and operators and senior technical personnel from generation, operation, control, transmission operation departments who are involved in the planning, operation and analysis of a power system. Such electrical engineers could be working in power utilities, oil and gas production and those involved in consultancy. Participants need no specific requirements, other than a good understanding of electricity and some relevant experience in power engineering.

    Trainees shall receive a portfolio containing a comprehensive course manual.

    Attendees shall receive a certificate of attendance from AMAD Tech.
