African Utility Week offers free training for electrical engineers


The South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE) is teaming up with African Utility Week and Clean Power Africa to offer two days of free CPD-accredited technical workshops for electrical engineers, technicians and contractors from the power and water industries.

The electrical engineering workshops will cover maintenance, problem-solving in deploying smart grids, fault testing, and energy management standards and systems and cloud technology.

Andre Hoffman, senior vice president of SAIEE, said: “A concerted effort needs to be made in lobbying government and policy makers to reinforce the role of trained and competent professional engineers or technologists in capacitating government utilities to run effectively and sustainably over the expected economic life-cycle of the investment.

“Delegates at African Utility Week need to use the opportunity to build and strengthen their professional networks and appreciation of the new developments in the various technologies available to them.”

African Utility Week and Clean Power Africa takes place on 13-14 May in Cape Town, South Africa. The annual conference and exhibition is attended by more than 5,000 power and water professionals from more than 30 African countries and 70 worldwide.
