Recommendation 30: Professional Engineering Training in Generation and Transmission.
Electricity Supply Industry Training Board, London (England).
The education and training provision set out in this recommendation are designed to develop suitable entrants to electricity boards for responsibilities as engineers in generation and transmission in Great Britain. The first objective is therefore to provide the trainee with the knowledge necessary to undertake a specific appointment immediately after training in the operation and maintenance or the development and construction aspects of generation, or in transmission. From such appointments he will develop both in confidence and in ability, and it is to be expected that trainees who have undertaken studies in engineering to degree or equivalent level may quickly gain sufficient experience to make them suitable for wider responsibilities. Thus a second objective must be to provide a wider understanding of the principles and practice of generation and transmission, together with supervisory and management techniques which will, as an engineer's career develops, enable him to build up knowledge and experience in whichever field of generation or transmission he enters. The layout of the recommendation follows the same lines as that for recommendation 31 (CE 001 038) dealing with technical training. Typical programs for professional engineering training in generation and transmission are given in the appendix. (Author/DS)
