Full qualification – UEE42611 Cert IV Hazardous Areas Electrical

Students who hold an unrestricted electrical license issued by a state or Territory and are successfully competent in both theoretical and practical training, completing all units of competency in the training package (refer http://training.gov.au/Training/Details/UEE42611), will receive the full qualification


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’.

target workforce

This course is for electrical workers 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 require a current unrestricted 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.

This EEHA training is delivered at one of PMV’s national training centres (Perth, Brisbane & Adelaide), or at a client’s facility.

refresher training

In accordance with the AS/NZS 60079.14 requirement for continuing education, PMV recommends that the EEHA Installation and Maintenance competencies are refreshed every 3 years.
