In 2014, Pat Mynett decided there was room in the market for another RTO to provide quality electrical training. Especially from a person with recent industry experience, whose main interest was in the safety of workers and the welfare of the plant. Arc flash safety training was a glaring omission in the industry so he developed, wrote and registered a nationally accredited arc flash course for those who work in an arc flash hazard zone.
Pat’s philosophy is to use the best trainers with the best knowledge, thus ensuring his company provides a quality service to the industry.
Pat Mynett, HV Training and Consulting’s (HVTAC) Director, has extensive industrial, mining and supply industry experience. He formed his frst specialised electrical training business in 1996, built it successfully and then sold it in 2000. That business is still trading today. He has now re-entered the market setting up HV Training and Consulting to provide up-to-date, quality electrical training, specialising in arc flash and high voltage operations training .
From 2008 until 2012 Pat was the Electrical Superintendent for Rio Tinto in Weipa. This role saw him responsible for two power stations, the Weipa town electrical reticulation, two mine sites, a processing plant, and the electrical workshop. He instigated and supervised the arc flash study for Weipa’s electrical system. From 2012 until March 2015 he was employed by Alcoa to develop, re-write and facilitate their high voltage training programs for some 400 workers. He also developed, wrote and facilitated arc flash training for electrical and non-electrical personnel.
