VDE Training in Lightning protection and Surge protection

Lightning protection systems protect people and buildings. They prevent fire and stop undesirable effects of lightning currents. Thus, lightning protection systems are among the building components that provide safety and ensure the trouble-free provision of services. Specially trained lightning protection specialists are therefore responsible for planning, installing and maintaining lightning protection systems.

For decades, the VDE Special Committee Lightning Protection has organized advanced training in lightning and surge protection to impart this special knowledge. The primary target group are

  • Persons with a vocational training in which lightning protection was already included in basic outline.
  • In addition, everyone in whose daily work lightning protection systems play a role is addressed.
