Hazardous Areas Electrical qualification provides competencies to select, install, test, maintain and inspect electrical equipment in hazardous locations (EEHA) in a gas and dust atmospheres. It includes ERAC requirements for an ‘Electrician’s licence’.
This course is for anyone involved in the “hands-on” side of hazardous area electrical work, i.e. the installation, maintenance or inspection of EEHA. Electricians and instrument technicians are the most common attendees, but we also train electrical engineers who perform inspections as part of their role. The course covers the theory and practice of field work in hazardous areas.
The course is post-trade training, so we usually require a current electrical license (any Australian state or territory) or instrumentation trade certificate as a pre-requisite. Electrical engineers meet the pre-requisites for the inspection related units only.
Blended delivery of 60% theory and 40% practical training with EEHA equipment that you are likely to see in a typical hazardous area industrial environment – oil, gas and mineral processing industry. The course includes in-class progressive assessment; short answer tests on hazardous area fundamentals; equipment marking; equipment certification; and, device interpretation.
You will undergo one on one practical training with industry experienced, qualified Electrical Professional Trainers with hands on experience in installation, inspection and remediation work in Hazardous areas. The training will include inspection on the purpose-built hazardous areas skids in the following areas:
1. Principles and classification;
2. Explosion-protection techniques;
3. Standards and Codes of practice
4. Reading and understanding hazardous area classification drawings
5. Name plate reading exercise for Ex d, Ex e and Ex i
