Industrialisation and modernisation has spread rapidly among Asian countries, including Singapore. Consequently, this implies increasing energy use and increasing critical facilities management. Electricity are widely used and account for a large share in industrial electrical system. Hence, the reliability and energy performance of these equipment are of utmost importance.

The Technical Seminar on Transient Voltage Surge Suppression Technology provides an insight to engineers, facilities managers, competent persons, industrial consultants, and project teams working on electrical systems in order to have a cleaner & safer electricity to protect their asset & reduce failure.

The Seminar is developed to understand the design and root cause of Transient issue, High voltage surge, effects of transients on electronic equipment, active frequency tracking, Modes of protection in a safe and efficient way for electrical power systems.

CPD/ PDU/ STU: 5 (Five) PDUs Approved/ Confirmed for PEB PEs (for all engineering branches/ disciplines) and IES C.ENGs (for engineering sectors listed in https://www.charteredengineers.sg).

Pending approval/ confirmation STU for IES/ACES M&E REs & RTOs.

This course is designed to assist engineers to prepare for Practical Professional Exam in Civil Engineering. The syllabus of the exam is very wide; many engineers do not know how to prepare for the exam. This course uses systemic approach to cover major topics.

Way-finding and signage design should be considered holistically as part of the building and facilities planning process. This is to ensure that people can have safe and easy access to amenities and facilities provided in a building. Through this course, the participants will have a good appreciation of how way-finding plays a vital role in Universal Design (UD), especially in supporting the ageing population; learn of the principles, design considerations and communication strategies of way-finding and signage; and be familiar with the design requirements set out in SS 599:2014 Guide for Wayfinding Signage in Public Areas. The Instructor will also share his experiences through the use of positive and negative case-studies.
