Statement of Attainment (SOA) – UEE42611 Certificate IV in Hazardous Areas- Electrical
This Statement is issued to a student who has successfully completed one or more units of competency listed below.


This qualification provides competencies to select, install, test, maintain and inspect electrical equipment in hazardous areas (EEHA) in a gas and dust atmosphere. It includes ERAC requirements for an ‘Electrician’s license’.

target workforce

This post-trade professional development course is for anyone involved in the “hands-on” side of hazardous area electrical work, i.e. the installation, maintenance or inspection of hazardous area electrical equipment. 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 who complete the inspection units of competency marked * in the table above, will be entitled to receive the SOA. If you have other qualifications or you’re unsure please just give us a call, we may still be able to help.

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.
