Course Description

The Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas course gives students the competency to undertake electrical work in a hazardous area and aligns to the requirements outlined in AS/NZS 4761 Competencies for working with electrical equipment for hazardous areas (EEHA).

This 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. Through a combination of theory and practical activities, participants will refresh their knowledge and skills to report, inspect, install, maintain and attend breakdowns of electrical equipment in a potential explosive environment.

Participants will undertake of a refresher of the Hazardous Area Wiring skill set nationally accredited units.
